Stall Training Basics

When beginning flight training, one of the critical skills that you’ll need to master is how to respond to stalls. 

A power-on stall occurs during takeoff when an engine loses power. Identifying and recovering from this stall is essential since the aircraft is close to the ground, and allowing the stall to become a spin could be disastrous.

A power-off stall when approaching landing is also dangerous since it occurs when the aircraft has begun descending altitude in consideration of landing. Turning or “accelerated” stalls can happen when making turns in the traffic pattern.

What is a stall?

During flight, smooth airflow with a pressure differential that favors the bottom of the wing produces lift. Stalls occur when the smoothness of airflow is disrupted, and they can happen at any altitude or speed during flight.

Signs that a stall may occur or is occurring include:

  • Reduced control effectiveness
  • A stall horn or indicator light
  • Light vibration of the aircraft

Paragon Flight training will focus on being able to recognize conditions that lead to stalls, identify them early, and recover from them as quickly as possible. When practicing, remember not to rush into entry and consider that recovery shouldn’t be severe. If you recognize what’s happening during a stall, your response is more likely to be appropriate.
