Long flights in Cessna 172 tips

I see other people doing massively long flights in the Cessna 172 they fly at around 50kts but HOW the second I do that I stall and plummet to the ground can someone tell me what I am doing wrong.

Did you put out flaps?

Do you have the flaps set to full at those 55kts? You will stall if not.

At that speed, you have to have full flaps yes. Check the POH of the C172 for further information regarding the landing of the C172.

I can maintain 50 knots with full flaps. Be sure to do it at a reasonably high altitude so that if you go into a stall you will have time to recover with ease. Also, I recommend going at slow speeds like that only when flying by hand. Autopilot doesn’t do well will irregular flight dynamics.

They probably due it by dumping all the fuel and setting the weight to as low as possible… remember we always have plenty of Infinite Fuel…
