LOC: Stall, Spin, Something Else?
1:00 PM - 2:15 PM

There seems to be a lot that’s not well known about loss of control. Analysis of 551 RV-series NTSB reports led to a number of different loss of control factors beyond stall / spin. Digital flight data of a botched low speed steep turn documented low speed spirals as another threat to base to final turns, easily losing 500’. Online videos suggest that vertical banks, from as yet unknown factors, are also significant. Flight test data of divergent spirals also gave unexpected results.
