Tonight's EAA Webinar Focuses on Recovery from Flight Control Failures

By Carmelo Turdo
Tonight's EAA webinar, "Flight With Broken Flight Controls," was presented by Mr. Gordon Penner, Master CFI Aerobatics and 10,000+ hour pilot, to assist general aviation pilots in recovering from incidents wherein the flight controls malfunction.  Review of aerodynamic principles, including adverse yaw, yaw/roll coupling and crossover speed preceded a discussion on how to recover from various jammed flight control scenarios.  A round of Q&A gave participants in the webinar some valuable first-hand advice.  Review of this webinar in the EAA archives is highly recommended.
