Default Stall/Spin or Low Speed Spiral, turning Base to Final

So I re-read the posting rules, and I think this is legit...

On Wednesday night, I was the presenter at the monthly NAFI (National Association of Flight Instructors) MentorLIVE webcast, presenting on the information in the title and how to easily prevent both of those. The presentation included *five* videos shot in the RV-9A, although three were altered to make it look like they were flown at dangerously low altitude at Oshkosh.

Enjoy: https://www.mentorlive.site/program/60.html

(Not because of my name recognition, but it has already passed 3,000 views. Trying to keep RVs and everybody else out of the NTSB reports...)

Does anyone have problem viewing this using the Google Chrome browser? I entered my info but the side bar didn't show up. This problem is on PC Window and on the Samsung phone.

Using Firefox browser works okay.

Sorry, out of my control. I tried to post the link to the presentation itself, butÖ

Thanks for sharing your presentation. I've salvaged more than my fair share of botched approaches and the presentation gives focus to what can go wrong. I tend to focus my attention over the nose and wait for the runway to come into view with the control inputs I am comfortable with. When I complete the base to final turn then I decide if I can fix the overshoot or excess height.

I create my challenge from wanting to fly a pattern that always gives me the opportunity to land on the runway if the engine quit. Sometimes others in the pattern will dictate I fly a wider, longer pattern than my usual. Maybe the short answer is "Don't do that" and fly a wider pattern that affords more time to sort out the details.

Thatís a good presentation Ed. I like to keep things simple, and the way you did it in gliders is an excellent method for doing that. Most of us flying RVís are very comfortable with steep bank angles (at altitude), and we may be more prone to making it too steep while in the pattern. Giving yourself a basic requirement to not exceed 30* on the base to final turn should protect against getting close to a low speed spiral. And if that results in an overshoot, no big deal, fly the airplane.
