In this respect the charcacter1stics of the Chipmunk are similar to those of a modern service aircraft with a moderately high wing Lo adIng .. o cockpit) It should be noted that with eogo forward~ there 1s a tendency at the stall to develop a tight spiral dive which is sometimes mistaken for a 13pin. it may be neeeaaary to apply oppos i te aileron as the stall is r-eached.9(contd) For the first three turns the attitude of the aircraft is fairly steep.2. During a spin the altimeter does not give a true indication of height above the ground due to a time lag in the instrument reading. Experiences of this kind with a spiral dive must not be permitted to mislead a student into assuming that spins may be conductEd with impunity at low altitude. Under these circ:umstances~ a prompt recovery may be effected with considerably less loss of heippt than in a true spin.4. .urna ...
