Flight Instructor Spin Training & Endorsement
For years CFI applicants in the Bay Area having been coming to AeroDynamic Aviation for their spin training endorsement. Our instructors are highly skilled in teaching you spin & upset recovery and transferring that knowledge to make you comfortable in recovering from stall/spins. The course and cost are similar to the Upset/Unusual Attitude & Spin Training (see above), but with an emphasis on how to effectively teach your students stall/spin awareness and how to recover from anything a student might surprise you with.
