Spin Prevention and Incidence Limiting System. SPILS is a duplex analogue system which operates in conjunction with the CSAS to achieve maximum aircraft lift in low level flight. It limits aircraft incidence, irrespective of the pilot’s demands, when maximum safe angles of attack are reached. Individual LRUs are the SPILS Computer and the SPILS Control Unit (C0245). (Janes 94 p444 full description of CSAS with photo).
