Award-winning Master Flight Instructor Rich Stowell has released “Learn to Turn,” a free program that takes a stick and rudder approach to help reduce the frequency of loss of control accidents.
Sponsored by Avemco Insurance Company and Hartzell Propeller, the program includes a 98-page digital booklet, a 42-page graphics supplement to facilitate classroom discussion, a 28-minute webinar recording, a 12-minute video, targeted training exercises, and a pilot survey.
“Through no fault of their own, light airplane pilots generally have been misinformed and undertrained regarding turn dynamics. As a result, too many continue to lose control of their airplanes,” said Stowell, who has more than 30 years of experience providing spin, emergency maneuver, and aerobatic training.
“In addition to academic content, ‘Learn to Turn’ offers training exercises designed to improve basic flying skills and increase awareness of the consequences of our control inputs,” he added.

The program can be found at CommunityAviation.com/Learn-to-Turn.
Pilots who participate in “Learn to Turn” can qualify for a 5% discount on their annual Avemco insurance premium through the company’s Safety Rewards Program.
The AOPA Air Safety Institute will host a Wings-approved webinar, “Implementing Learn to Turn,” with Stowell on Oct. 21, 2021, at 7 p.m. EDT.
