Spin Recognition & Recovery


Unless you intentionally spin a glider as part of an aerobatic routine, you are most likely to enter a spin inadvertently, either while working a thermal or while maneuvering close to the ground (low altitude save or low & slow while landing).


If you enter a spin from sufficient altitude, you will need to know how to recover.  At low altitude, there is no time to recover from a spin, so your best bet is to avoid entering the spin in the first place by recognizing the warning signs.
