Feature Article: Imminent Stalls
The major difference between this stall segment and those proceeding
is the "depth" of the stall. In this procedure regardless
of the configuration the recovery is initiated at onset. In the
preceding segments no recovery was to be initiated until the actual
"break" had occurred. The initiation as before begins
with CLEARING TURNS. After obtaining the
assigned airspeed, flap setting, power, and bank, commence the
entry. The more slowly you enter the stall, while holding heading/altitude
as required, the quieter and more easily heard and felt will be
the signs of the stall. If anything, the imminent stall should
be approached more gently than a full stall.
The recovery of the imminent stall can be a very smooth gentle
process with final recovery in a climb configuration. Again discuss
with the examiner how far he wishes you to hold the climb. All
disqualifying elements of the full stall apply to an imminent
stall. Since the emphasis here is on recognition, letting a full
stall develop would probably be disqualifying.
The stall is because of the angle of attack not the airspeed or
a. Mushy controls
b. Change in pitch of exterior air flow
c. Buffet, vibration, pitching, sounds
d. Stall warning
e. Body sensing
