SHOULD YOU TAKE AN SPIN AVOIDANCE, UNUSUAL ATTITUDE COURSE?
READ THIS LETTER!
Steve and Kathy,
Your Unusual Attitude and Spin Recovery Course saved my life yesterday, even though I took your course 2 years ago.
I am a low hour private pilot, not instrument rated. Late last night I was flying a Cessna 172 and inadvertently flew into some low clouds while climbing. Full IMC. I could not see anything outside. I did call ATC for help and was given vectors to a nearby well-lit Class D field, but I was trapped in the clouds for some time while attempting to follow these vectors. As I noticed the instruments starting to dance around I realized I lacked the ability (muscle memory? trained reflexes?) to quickly interpret them and take action. Then I knew I was in trouble. I found myself "chasing" the instruments, and everything started to happen faster and faster and faster; I was WAY behind the airplane.
Well, I did break out (or fall out?) of the clouds - and found myself at 400 feet AGL and noticed that the horizon was up high in the windscreen (nose dive?); I had to lift my head slightly to see it. I was in a steep bank and it was slowly getting steeper!(Spiral dive?) I think the plane was starting to roll and I was also obviously in a nose low attitude. Here is where your training came in. I was able to immediately recover from that unusual attitude at such a dangerously low altitude - at night. After that I was able to see the Class D field's lights, fly toward the field, and land safely.
When I dropped out those clouds I had a just few seconds to react and recover the plane. There was no time for guesswork. I had one shot at it. Your course saved my life.
