Common errors in the performance of intentional stalls

Common errors in the performance of intentional stalls are:
  • Failure to adequately clear the area
  • Over-reliance on the airspeed indicator and slip-skid indicator while excluding other cues
  • Inadvertent accelerated stall by pulling too fast on the controls during a power-off or power on stall entry
  • Inability to recognize an impending stall condition
  • Failure to take timely action to prevent a full stall during the conduct of impending stalls
  • Failure to maintain a constant bank angle during turning stalls
  • Failure to maintain proper coordination with the rudder throughout the stall and recovery
  • Recovering before reaching the critical AOA when practicing the full stall maneuver
  • Not disconnecting the wing leveler or autopilot, if equipped, prior to reducing AOA
  • Recovery is attempted without recognizing the importance of pitch control and AOA
  • Not maintaining a nose down control input until the stall warning is eliminated
  • Pilot attempts to level the wings before reducing AOA
  • Pilot attempts to recover with power before reducing AOA
  • Failure to roll wings level after AOA reduction and stall warning is eliminated
  • Inadvertent secondary stall during recovery
  • Excessive forward-elevator pressure during recovery resulting in low or negative G load
  • Excessive airspeed buildup during recovery
  • Losing situational awareness and failing to return to desired flightpath or follow ATC instructions after recovery.
