A complete study of the stall/spin phenomena.

A comprehensive study of stall-spin phenomena. Written by John Lowery, highly experienced in both pilot training and aircraft flight testing, this book emphasizes NASA data on stalls and spins in general-aviation aircraft. Broadening the scope are interviews with factory test pilots together with data from aircraft manufacturers. Added to these are the author's own extensive experience in both high-performance and general-aviation aircraft. Anatomy of a Spin has many high-quality diagrams and photographs, and also offers a comprehensive explanation of why there is no "standard recovery" from a spin.

As of March 2013 now published and distributed by Aircraft Technical Book Company. Formerly published by Airguide Publications.
