MaxFacts: Stalls, What’s it & Recovery (PARE)

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 if your behind the craft and in a Stall by then. A Stall is simply characterized by a sudden loss of control, a fall off on one wing and may be followed by an uncontrolled Spin in any Aircraft. Primarily a stall occurrs at any Height 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:

PARE= Power to Idle, A= Ailerons to Neutral (Flaps up), R= Rudder, Full opposite to the Spin/Wing fall off Direction, Elivator Neutral.

(When all rotation (spin) or Wing down 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.
