Spin Training

Should You Do Any Spin Training? read this story of mine and you decide for yourself:

Back in 1992, after I had been instructing for a few years, I was in the local FBO’s office where I worked. I was waiting for one of my students to come back from a solo flight. When my student came in, he looked as though he had just seen a ghost. He was shaking and sweating I asked him what happened. The answer that I got was one that most flight instructors would not want to hear: “I was practicing stalls in the practice area, and all of a sudden I was upside down, and then just spinning toward the ground I didn’t know what to do, but I heard your voice tell me to pull the power back and just let go of the control column, and the plane will stabilize.”

If you know anything about small Cessnas, they tend to have a forward CG and will recover if you just let go of the controls for a second
