SPINNING is a rather complicated subject but it is possible to present quite a broad view without going into too much detail so that one can appreciate the way in which the various characteristics of the aircraft can affect the motion both during the spin and in the recovery from the spin. In the following notes an attempt has been made to do this in a way which, it is hoped, will be helpful to the designer and the flight technician and pilot.
