    So Caneman is not the only person to utilize gloves?

    ^every pilot should have at least one pair of those! I wear them in the winter to keep my hands warm, and in the summer to keep my grip from slipping. They go right along with a giant watch and Aviators.

    Yeah if you don't have at least one pair of nomex gloves in your Sporty's brand tool bag, you're not a real pilot. Next you'll tell me you don't carry an E6B.

    Dumb question... but is he inducing the spins or is it just that violent?

    I prefer GORE-TEX. Makes it look like you have bear claws for hands! When they get dirty, they look like welding gloves. :D

    Apparently it's that er "abrupt". We certainly don't practice it, so that's just a rumor, but as he is doing it for certification, I can't imagine there's anything in it for him to make it more dramatic.

    After reading my post I knew I'd get a response like yours. You are right there isn't any spin.

    Yeah, no, the stall causes the airplane to roll inverted and dive so while there is no spin, it is a bit aggressive.

    Nice! Have a few good friends from PlaneSense complete their initial there, they enjoyed it, and love flying the plane even more.

    Congrats!

    Always a cool video to watch. Did they show you the overtemp/compressor stall video while using the MOR? That's a good one too.
