5 Lessons Every Pilot Must Learn


A power on stall is practiced to teach you that an aircraft can stall at any speeds or at any phase in flight. But more importantly you are taught the dangers of stalling the airplane during take off if you exceed the angle of attack.
To simulate a power on stall, you put the aircraft in takeoff configuration, when ready, push the power up, may be to max power, then pitch the nose of the aircraft up. Hold the nose up until the airplane stalls. During a power on stall practice, you are advised to keep your toes active on the rudders so you can keep the wings balanced and keep the ball centered. There’s a possibility a wing may drop when practicing stalls.
To recover, you simply pitch the nose of the aircraft down and add power.
