Why is there such a huge emphasis on “stalls” in flight training? Stalls are something that happens when the wing looses it’s lift temporarily, usually only on part of the wing.

A stall occurs when the angle of attack reaches a critical angle. That can happen at any attitude and any airspeed.

Stalls are most common while near the ground. That is, while taking off and landing. If a stall were to occur close to the ground, there is very little time to react and recover.

So… pilots are taught to recognize a stall is coming, recover from a stall if it somehow occurs, and avoid spins by correctly reacting to those stalls.

In this particular video we will talk about the Power Off, Approach to Landing Stall. We will be in the landing configuration and we’re emulating that approach to landing, with flaps, NO POWER (power off/power idle), and we may even execute it in a turn.

This emulates the ability to recover from a stall while landing.

The ACS (Airmen Certification Standards) lays out, as of 2017, that the stall should be brought all the way to the buffet and developed stall. THEN you will recover.
