Since I hijacked another person's thread with this topic, I guess I'd better start one of my OWN, so here it is...
HOW MANY folks that hold a current (or past) Private license (or above) have ACTUALLY had SPIN TRAINING in their flight training?
I mean where you actually HAD to recover from a spin "hands on".
Sure, many of us have been shown/performed a stall, and instructed on related spin recovery...but I'm a believer that UNDER PRESSURE (like actually IN a spin) one reverts to their training...and if you don't actually HAVE it...well.
I'm wondering if this should ALWAYS be included in a student pilot's flight instruction much more than is common. Thoughts?
