Why don't they teach American private pilots how to recover from a spin? The current policy is to teach "no stall no spin," but no one stalls their plane intentionally, under most circumstances. Everywhere else in the world pilots are taught, in a spinning aircraft, how to recover from a spin.

Recovery from a spin is actually quite easy, ONCE YOU HAVE TRAINED TO DO SO! I can imagine that you panic if you encounter a spin for the first time and without an instructor.
Nevertheless, it is forbidden to practice the manoevre in most countries UNLESS you have an aerobatics license and/or have a ATPL or equivalent. Of course, most instructors will teach their trainees in Spin recovery (in Belgium)



Shiek!

Of course we are taught how to recover from a spin, we just don't actually perform them in an airplane. I don't know how things are done in other countries, but we train in the BE-A36 Bonanza and it is actually illegal to put that aircraft into an intentional spin. We do, however, perform power-on and power-off, level and banking stalls. It seems like you're implying we don't stall the aircraft, but we actaully do it as a regular part of our training.

In many countries Australia, Great Britain (I believe) and Canada, a recovery from an actual spin MUST be demonstrated in order to get your license. Someone mentioned before that certain airplanes aren't certified spin; that's right. A spin test must be performed in a certified aircraft (usually a Cessna 150/52, 172, or some kind of Piper.)

Hi!
I'm from Vancouver, Canada, and I'm working toward my commercial license. I couldn't believe it when I heard that American (among others I gather) pilots do not have to have experience in spin recovery. I couldn't imagine messing up a power on stall recovery leading to a spin with no experience in dealing with the situation. I think it would be wise to introduce the spin recovery. Besides, it's lots of fun once you get used to it!

HEy!

A year ago when I was 14 years old I flew my Cessna 150 out with my instructer and he gave the de-brief in the classroom than we headed out for the north where I did my Stalls and than came the Spins and Spirals !
Man i was so nervus.. it was my job to recover..
I never done such a thing before but here we gooooo.. as my aircraft started to decend at high high speeds
my instructer kept a close eye out to everything I did with no help till I got the plane back to normal speeds and attitude.. it was a weird.. but for some reason I did everything that was required.. it was a 1-2-3 procedure! control to the left... full power.. trim the aircraft.. thats what I remeber that day!
