Re: What made you want to be a Pilot?

Becoming a pilot is much easier than becoming a Hollywood actor and pays a lot less. I don't know why I wanted to become a pilot. Now that I think about it, porn star would have been a much wiser choice.

That's because its a spin entry thread. Once we settle the entry, we'll start the recovery discussion. :)

Re: spinning

One more thing. This topic started as a spin entry question. To help out the OP, he/she is asking how to spin the C172P. I hope this video gives you an idea. Read what 5x5 and BPF said also.

Re: spinning

Aux, I do understand now how you went about it. Good call to have somebody monitoring your flying. You obviously have a lot more experience than me, its just something I wouldn't do at this stage unless I went up with somebody and/or practiced at a safe height. To your defence from what Michael was ...

Re: spinning

Fair enough, but I hope you practice this at a safe altitude. I don't think the value gained from this exercise warrants the high risk involved in performing it al low altitude.

Re: spinning

That's a horrible video Michael. Goes to show, that turning back after an EFATO at low altitude is not a good idea. Def good video to show students (Intensity) I can be a good idea. You just need to know what kind of energy state (altitude and airspeed) you need in order to make it back, taking int...

Re: spinning

Make sure you stall it first. I used to spin the C172R with 1800 rpm at least. Get that rudder in fully and hold it. It doesn't like to spin.

Re: Some Advice

If you want to instruct, you need to re-do the entire program. You are looking at 25 hrs of ground school and 30 hrs of flying (5 hrs may be sim for the instrument part) That should run you 7-9 thousand dollars, depending on where you do it. Not much work available for instructors right now though,...
