The WEIRDEST feeling flight maneuver I’ve ever learned!

I thought I was fairly prepared to handle an accelerated spin – yet upon doing it the first time I froze for a few seconds before I began the correct recovery… Every pilot should seriously consider some form of upset recovery training; even if they don’t want to go insane like I did covering so much more with Luke 🙂

Huge thanks to Harv’s Air for making this happen!  

They are one of the very few flight schools in North America that offer basic and advanced aerobatic training to all levels of pilots!

I am a “weekend warrior” private pilot, I fly for fun with no intentions of going commercial. I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience – I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve…. Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share. Feedback is invited; however, please keep it positive.
