MaxFacts: For The Fledlings: Stall Recovery (Reopended)

Retired/Closed Topic: an evidant need exists!

A Stall, been there, done that! Aircraft, lose lift or any of the other aerodymactic factor that keeps them aloft and they “Stall”, a Master Warning Horn will activate in IF and the RW if your behind the craft and induced a Stall. A Stall is simply characterized by a sudden loss of control, a fall off on one wing and at times followed by an uncontrolled Spin. Primarily a stall occurrs due to a loss of energy or its induced by dynamic forces outside the control of a Pilot or there lack of practice and proficiency. Most stalls are recoverable if you have the height and practiced proficiency to recover and proceed on route in any profile or configuration. Stall Recovery is a basic procedure taught to ever Student Pilot, and they must Demonstrate Stall Recovery to move on to their solo and final check ride. “PARE” is the nemonic (memory aid) all aviators should be familure with, it’s the step by step stall recovery procedure we all should be familure with. Here’s how to recover from a Stall/Spin:
P= Power to Idle, A= Ailerons to Neutral (Flaps up), R= Rudder, Full opposite to the Spin Direction, Elivator Neutral. (When all rotation (spin) Stops move the Rudder to Neutral, Elivator, EZ pull till Streight & Level, proceed on course.

Practice this procedure in a remote area often, fly streight and level. Cut/chop the throttle wait for it, in a light aircraft like a 172 it may take 30+ second to bleed of enough energy to stall! in a fast mover or a heavy Trash Hauler it may be instantainious. Practice makes perfect. Learn this procedure it’s a bacon saver. Good Luck.

(Compliments of @Ksisky; Extremely important Point! “Just to add: if you are in a low power stall (stalling during final) and you aren’t in a spin, the first step is to increase to full throttle, to lessen the angle of attack.” Thank you “Pilot”)


Nice post. The amount of times I saw someone stall on approach to KSAN on TS1. :laughing:

helpful as usual :)


Nice Information @Maxmustang I would say this information is accurate too IF pilots. Even though I didn’t like stalls during my PPL training. I like to do them in IF and spin the airplane to see if I can recover which 99 percent of the time I can


Just to add: if you are in a low power stall (stalling during final) and you aren’t in a spin, the first step is to increase to full throttle, to lessen the angle of attack.


There are other ways to exit a stall for example just pushing the throttle up. Jet engines are often able to power out of stalls but in the right conditions of course

I remember reading the original post like 6-7 months ago.

Nice post, very informative!

MaxSez: @Thomas_Oehrling… let’s keep "Spool up lag"in mind on this one, this anomalies occurs in IF. “Compressor Stall” is a consideration IRW.


Know your plane.

If the nose is tilting too high, you’re doing it wrong.

Don’t be afraid to use flaps on approach.
