    TsAGI introduces new spin test facility

    High-angle-of-attack flight may bring the aircraft to the stall point and, as a consequence, to the spin. To study these characteristics the aircraft models have wind tunnel tests with special installations that simulate critical modes by the angle-of-attack rotation and angle-of-slideslip sensing.
