Pilots have lost control of airplanes since the very first days of flight. Stalls, spins and unusual attitudes have long challenged new and experienced aviators alike. The wrong angle of bank, too much pitch, too little airspeed, equipment failure, or any combination of these and dozens of other conditions — often lead to an airplane desperately “Out of Control.”

Those that fly know these dangers. They know that there are inescapable boundaries separating what is safe from what can kill. Though they train to recognize those boundaries, to stay within the margins that will bring them home to fly another day, airplanes still go out of control. Every pilot knows that staying in control is yet another Challenge of Flight!
