Beyond Proficient: Unpredictable Upset

Step into the cockpit of an Extra 300 for a demonstration of how to recover from an unpredictable upset such as, for example, caused by flying into wake turbulence. ASI’s Senior Vice President Richard McSpadden and Video Producer Tyler Pangborn take the Extra for a flight that allows Tyler to experience how he reacts to the upset caused by wake turbulence, even though he knew to expect it. You’ll learn what to do and what not to do to recover from such an upset in-flight that can quickly catch a pilot by surprise.

Review the Beyond Proficient: Extra 300 series for an introduction to flying the Extra 300, recovering from unusual attitudes, and an introduction to aerobatics.
