Take A Pitts S-2B For A Spin!
Representatives with CP Aviation, Inc. of Santa Paula, CA told
ANN this week the school has expanded its unusual attitude training
programs to include a new Advanced Spin Training Module. A recently
acquired Pitts S-2B is the featured training platform for this
specialized training module.
The Advanced Spin Training Module follows the same
building-block approach used in CP Aviation's Emergency Maneuver
Training--EMT�--Program. Pilots taking advanced spin
training will gain practical experience with upright and inverted
flat spins, transition spins, and aggravated spins resulting from
botched maneuvers. The module consists of two separate lessons, and
can be completed in one day.
Priced at $595, the training includes 1.5 hours each of ground
and flight time.
"We're excited about offering advanced spin training in the
Pitts," said Rich Stowell, 2006 National CFI of the Year. "This
certainly will be a nice complement to our EMT Program."
By combining EMT Module I (Stall/Spin Awareness) with the
Advanced Spin Training Module, pilots will now be able to explore
the entire spin envelope in a structured environment. Many of the
persistent myths and misconceptions about stalls and spins will be
dispelled in the process.
