Gary - This is absolutely sad and very terrible news that is coming on the heels of the recent tragic news from the Grand Teton NP crash. Can you tell us were in Arizona this accident occurred?

Condolences go out to all....

My buddy was on a great base leg and tried to catch a thermal at around 400’ and spun in.

It may appear to some that he tried to catch a thermal.

There may be a different story in the IGC files.

The atmosphere has a bag full of nasty tricks.

He was on base, made several circles and climbed a little, and then broke into a spin. The standard cirus did about 2 revolutions before it hit the ground. This was no freak atmospheric event, except that the air is more turbulent near the ground. Don’t f*#~k around down low...

Pilots should be thoroughly familiar with the slow speed turning behavior of their ships. Take a new ship to altitude and put it in a thermal type turn and then "abuse" the controls with skids, slips and too much back stick to see what it is going to do. Repeat this occasionally to remind you of the warning signs of incipient spins.

The Standard Cirrus wing twist (washout) was increased in 1972. Although earlier birds responded promptly to wing drop/spin they were (are) less tolerant of less-than-ideal pilotage than today's ships like the Duo Discus.
