Having a strong or weak stomach doesn't change things.

Actually it comes from the brain, not sure what that means in the scheme of things.
I did get seasick once, I went below in a small boat in the middle of Summer when we were towing a disabled boat, I didn't throw up but really got queasy, I will get quesy in a helicopter easy if someone else is flying, and an airplane about seven rotations in a spin and I have to stop for awhile.

Unless you were at nose bleed altitude, 7 turns would be getting close to the ground.

Been years ago, but I think this is six turns in my C-140, you can see not much altitude loss. I think go at least a minute into it.

On edit, I just looked at it again, maybe only three or so turns, been ten years or so at least. But she doesn't lose much altitude in a turn as you would think.

Oh I think you would find yourself dead if you did it just one in the pattern.

hummmm, doing acrobatic maneuvers in a plane that is not rated for it?

Speaking of lies.
I've never done that, and I've never broken minimums.




On Edit... Guy you are correct. I have corrected my mistake.

Clean up your post please, it's a64 who says he has done 6 turn spins in a plane not rated for spins at all, on an internet forum no less, not me.

Re: Most frequent lie encountered while cruising

A lot of light aircraft will lose 500 or less per turn in a fully developed spin. Most of the altitude is lost in the entry. Once fully developed the loss per turn is less in most airplanes. Spins in a C140 are legal.
Doing a spin at pattern altitude would be a really bad thing.

Re: Most frequent lie encountered while cruising

You don't need to pull your mast, we can just lean your boat over by pulling on your mast from another boat while we go under bridge....

Do it all the time...

No problem
