June 15th, 2022 at 8:00 PM Eastern: “Understanding Slips & Skids” presented by Mark King, MCFI-Aerobatics and Capt. Brian Schiff

“Understanding Slips & Skids” presented by Mark King, MCFI-Aerobatics and Capt. Brian SchiffMark and Brian’s MentorLIVE presentation, “Understanding Stalls and Spins” planted the seed for a follow-on presentation: “Understanding Slips and Skids”.

Cross controlled:  what does that really mean?  Skidded turns:  what really happens and how do we avoid them?  When can a slip be a life-saving maneuver?  I’ve stalled in a slip: “What now?”

Can we turn in a slip?  How can I control speed in a slip?  What’s different between a forward slip and a side slip?  What about slipping with flaps?  Join Mark and Brian as they dig into these questions and separate fact from fiction.
