    Skydiving Twin Stalls

    Saw this on another group. Great video of a twin going into a spin....Good stuff starts about 50 seconds in.


    Pilot recovered, landed normally, no damage.

    If you look carefully you can see a jumper exit at about the 1:41 mark.

    No person may conduct a parachute operation, and no pilot in command of an aircraft may allow a parachute operation to be conducted from that aircraft—
    (a) Into or through a cloud, or
    (b) When the flight visibility or the distance from any cloud is less than that prescribed in the following table:

    As to spin recovery: most jumps with relative work are done from high altitude so recovery for the aircraft should not be an issue unless you have a ham handed pilot at the controls.

    Certainly the rule in the US. But the aircraft had South African registry (ZS-OHB, briefly visible at about 1:25) and the rules may be different there.

    Recovering a twin from a spin and recovering a single are two different things. Apparently that one is doable, though.

    In this case, the pilot had the left engine at flight idle as the skydivers climbed out. He knew he was going to stall when the elevator hit the stop. During the recovery, he idled the right engine, then, when he stopped the rotation, shoved the throttles forward again. However, one of the engines was delayed in spooling up, which led to the secondary stall/spin you see....
