For straight air I flat base right before the lip also, It keeps me more centered in the air. I noticed if I straight air off my edge, then I am doing a slight lean onto that edge and even that slight lean can turn into a bigger lean in the air throwing me off balance and my landing wont be as crisp. As someone else said, doing a shifty or a grab helps keep you steady in the air. But going flat based off a jump isnt always possible, for instance a natural feature on a run might be on a turn or an angle itself where you would need to jump off an edge, so its just another little skill that you will equip yourself with, with practice over time. For a spin, If your not making it all the way around your probably not committing, you have to commit all the way though the spin.
