The National Association of Flight Instructors (NAFI) is joining Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona Beach, Fla., in a safety study of spin-training experience by flight instructors. The FAA does not require spin training except for flight instructors, but the “quality and depth of that training can vary widely,” said NAFI executive director Rusty Sachs. “Safety, however, demands that flight instructors be thoroughly competent and current in these procedures because an instructor’s ability to impart this knowledge and skill creates better pilots who can handle such situations.” As part of the study, instructors will be surveyed as to their experience and confidence levels in spin training.
