Spins can be scary for any pilot, and especially for the student pilot. The first time you enter a spin you will likely try to reach for the holy $&#% handles. Unfortunately, most airplanes do not have any. Spins can also be deadly if inadvertently entered with no knowledge of proper recovery techniques. Learning about the conditions that lead to a spin will hopefully ensure you never inadvertently enter one.
However, if you do happen to enter a spin inadvertently, proper recovery training will give you the best chance at not becoming a statistic. You will also be required to enter and recover from a spin on a flight test if you plan on becoming a Canadian commercial pilot. There is no spin requirement on Canadian private pilot flight tests.
