The Council on Unusual Attitude Training & Education, created by flight instructors who specialize in stall/spin/upset training and aerobatics, has two mission statements:
- To provide guidance on unusual attitude training techniques and acceptable practices.
- To address common misconceptions about unusual attitude aerodynamics and unusual attitude training.

Are you ready for an engine failure in the pattern, a jammed flight control in IMC, or stopping an incipient spin in its tracks? IFR Magazine's Jeff Van West talks with aerobatic training pilot Rich Stowell about how average pilots can be ready for the unexpected. Click here to listen to the podcast (9.4 MB, 10:14).
“The primary reason proponents advocate, and pilots seek out, additional stall and spin training is—surprise!—spin prevention. The advertised objective of spin training is to expand a pilot’s knowledge, experience, and skill set to prevent an inadvertent spin departure in the first place.” — Rich Stowell
This website also links to providers of stall/spin/upset training and serves as a information clearinghouse for instructors, pilots, and students.
