team or not, i have learned a boatload more about how airplanes fly by flying acro than i ever did in 102-325.

i think spin training and unusual/upset attitudes should be a part of EVERY pilot getting a license.

i agree. tailwheel training in general is great for learning how airplanes fly. Acro is just a whole nother can of worms, but very valuable.
