GPC Theory Lesson 6 Unit 18 Spin & Spiral Dive Avoidance and Recovery (1).pptx

Gliders spend a lot of their time flying at a high angle-of-attack and therefore have a high potential for spin entry.

Spins & spiral dives consume considerable amounts of height and are dangerous below 1000’ AGL.

You need to know how to recognise & recover from spins & spiral dives.

GPC Theory Lesson 05 - Circuits and Landings Part1

       For a safe landing we must: -

o   Break off the flight – terminate soaring

o   Have a suitable landing area and pattern

o   Configure the aircraft for landing

o   Set up a final approach path with a safe margin over obstacles.

       The purpose of the circuit is to arrive at the final turn in the right place, at a safe height (at least 300ft AGL) and speed, and with safe alternatives always available.

       At an airfield it has the further purpose of setting up an orderly flow of traffic.
