I like to see my companies (Global Flight Research) Upset Recovery training Program has broken through the political walls. This training was developed in 1989 in the MD88 and progressed through the DC-9 series and into the 717.

Can anyone confirm this? Any DC-9/MD80/717 pilots here?
|Quoting thepinkmachine (Reply 1):|
The thing that strikes me is the recovery - after rolling inverted and a second or two of hesitation, the PF recovered by pulling thru vertical, rather than rolling back upward with ailerons - this is a big 'no' in upset recovery/aerobatics, as it can cause a massive overspeed, over 'g' and tremendous altitude loss - as seen subsequently in the video.
|Quoting AAR90 (Reply 6):|
I am not sure where y'all are getting the "split-S" recovery from.
|Quoting NBGSkyGod (Reply 8):|
The -90 was EFIS only during flight testing.
|Quoting francoflier (Reply 4):|
although I'd be curious to know how many Gs they pulled.
