|WHEN YAW RATE STOPS FLY OUT OF THE UNUSUAL ATITUDE|
|IF STILL OUT OF CONTROL BY 10,000 FT EJECT|
Typically 10,000 feet may be lost in spin recovery, hence the SOP is to eject if a spin occurs at less than 10,000 ft. With practice however, spin recovery CAN be effected with only a 5,000 ft loss in altitude.
