are inappropriate. The same applies for any airspeed value other than zero or stabilized between
80 - 100 knots.
The steps of checking altitude, AOA, airspeed, and turn needle should take at most 1 - 2 seconds
and can be thought of in easier terms by memorizing the Scan Pattern in Figure 2-1.
Figure 2-1 Scan Pattern
If in Steady-State Spin, execute appropriate spin recovery technique.
Assuming a Steady-State Spin, the controls at this point will be neutral. In order to execute the
appropriate spin recovery technique, use full rudder opposite the turn needle deflection and
moving the stick a bit more forward. Recovery may take up to two more full turns.
After the aircraft regains controlled flight, execute unusual attitude recovery as appropriate.
Barring complications or bailout, the aircraft will in all cases return to controlled flight, usually
rather quickly. The unusual attitude that follows will, in most cases, be nose-low. While
maintaining the nose-low attitude, check the position of the wings. If inverted, roll in the
shortest direction to the upright position and then complete the recovery by leveling the wings
and commencing a smooth pullout, not to exceed the aircraft "G" limits or 24 units AOA.
