A recently derived analytical criterion for predicting the spin susceptibility of aircraft is applied to the Generic Transport Model (GTM). The criterion is unique among spin prediction criteria in that it involves computing the zeros of a single nonlinear expression which is a function of the aerodynamic moments acting on the aircraft and their derivatives. The results obtained from the criterion are compared with traditional spin-susceptibility criteria and with results obtained from bifurcation analysis, and a good correlation is found for spin susceptibility in two angle-of-attack regions.
