The objective of this study was to determine the weaknesses of present flight training syllabi, the methods of training used, and the flight instruction presently provided in the stall/spin area; conceive an experimental stall/spin increment to an established flight and ground training syllabus; and conduct flight and ground test evaluations of this syllabus change and the flight instruction techniques required. Results indicate that additional ground training in the subject of stalls and spins, additional flight training on stall awareness, and/or intentional spin training would all have a positive influence toward reducing inadvertent stalls and spins.
