Spatial Disorientation

Did you know spatial disorientation was a factor in JFK Jr.'s plane crash? His body did not have visual cues to sense which direction his aircraft was traveling. Ninety percent of spatial disorientation accidents are fatal. The leading cause of spatial disorientation is VFR flight into instrument meteorological conditions. This quiz will help you understand how to react when the vacuum system fails or how to recover with an operational vacuum pump when encountering VFR flight into IMC.
