Folks - This has been a great thread, and I'm impressed by the unanimity of opinion in such a diverse group. I also agree whole-heartedly that if you haven't gotten spin training you don't belong in competition aerobatics. That said... what in the heck does any of this have to do with Primary or Basic? Yeah, Basic had a spin and Primary doesn't. Who's to say that Basic competitors had any more spin training than Primary competitors? Just because a figure appears in the Known doesn't mean that the pilot is any good at it (heck, I'm living proof of that!). So let's address the REAL question here. What constitutes an acceptable level of emergency aerobatic spin training? And given the strong pro-training bias of the respondents, why are we so shy about imposing training requirements?
