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.

Stall Recognition
The stall is because of the angle of attack not the airspeed or attitude.
a. Mushy controls
b. Change in pitch of exterior air flow
c. Buffet, vibration, pitching, sounds
d. Stall warning
e. Body sensing
