I have started a new thread on this as I think to further the discussion on the thread that it is currently being discussed on is inappropriate. But this is obviously a topic that does require further discussion. I read in several forums here about the need for spin training. Now within RAA are aircraft are neither approved to spin nor probably in most cases tested for it. In the normal day to day flying that we as RAA Certificate holders do why is there a need for spin training. It is unlikely that I would have completed my training if there was a requirement to spin. I do no go on amusement rides that can turn me upside down and as such would not go on a joyflight that could do the same. In fact I have never been in an aircraft that can do aerobatics and am not likely to do so. So is the "perceived" requirement to learn to spin/recover based on the possibility that I may one day inadvertently enter into a spin in an aircraft not suited to it nor tested to it. If that is the case is there some huge hole in my training that could allow me to do something I am not ready for, or is it only likely to happen if I start pushing the envelope. This may seem obvious to some, but to me it seems totally contradictory.
