Feature Article: Abnormal Situation Training
We do not want a first spin to be of the accidental kind.
We do not want a first encounter with adverse weather to be while
solo. A pilot's first SVFR experience should not be after getting
rated. Training that avoids turbulence is not likely to give
a pilot familiarity and confidence when cockpit things begin
to jump. The startle factor of such events are quite likely to
cause reactions based upon instinct rather than training. The
rule of primacy is apt to be a pilot's worst enemy in a startle
situation. The failure of training to provide prior experience
into abnormal situations is a failure of the instructional program
and instructor. Good judgment and appropriate decision making
can only exist through situational exposure. Flight instruction
is expected to prepare students to fly into the expected and
to avoid the unexpected.
