Myth #8

Lesson 8

Myth: The longer an airplane stays in a spin, the greater the chance of structural damage.

Reality: The spin itself is a relatively low g maneuver. A normal upright spin, for example, imposes essentially one g on the pilot and the airplane. It is during the pullout following the spin recovery where significant g-load could be generated. It’s up to the pilot to manage the g-load to stay within design limits during the pullout.
