Spin Resistance Evaluation of a Light Airplane 871021

A brief history of stall/spin technology for light general aviation airplanes and proposed criteria to describe desirable characteristics of a spin-resistant airplane are presented. Flight tests of a representative light airplane to evaluate compliance with and usefulness of the criteria are presented. The baseline airplane configuration would not meet the spin resistance criteria. Tests of the airplane with a wing leading edge modification to enhance its spin resistance showed compliance with the proposed criteria.
