MaxFledglingFacts: “STALL/SPIN Recovery. (Numonic “PARE”)

(This is not a Duplicate. It is a Revision and Update of a closed 2016 Topic)

MaxSez; 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. Primarily a stall occurrs due to a loss of energy, ice or its induced by dynamic forces outside the control of the PF like low/high speed maneuvering or lack of proficiency. Most stalls are recoverable if you have the height and practiced proficiency to recover and proceed en-route in any profile. Stall/Spin Recovery is a basic must know 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:

STALL; P= Power to Idle, A= Ailerons to Neutral (Flaps up), R= Rudder, Full opposite to the low wing/ Spin Direction, Elivator Neutral. (When Wing Low/Spin is present: When all rotation (spin) Stops move the Rudder to Neutral, Elivator, EZ pull till Streight & Level, E, Energy/power, 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.


Power is full in a stall, idle in a spin. Great topic thanks for the share.
