- Recognize factors and situations that can lead to a power-off stall and actions that can be taken to prevent it
- Develop the ability to recover from a power-off stall
- Failure to adequately clear the area
- Over-reliance on the airspeed indicator and slip-skid indicator while excluding other cues
- Inadvertent accelerated stall by pulling too fast on the controls during a power-off or power on stall entry
- Inability to recognize an impending stall condition
- Failure to take timely action to prevent a full stall during the conduct of impending stalls
- Failure to maintain a constant bank angle during turning stalls
- Failure to maintain proper coordination with the rudder throughout the stall and recovery
- Recovering before reaching the critical AOA when practicing the full stall maneuver
- Not disconnecting the wing leveler or autopilot, if equipped, prior to reducing AOA
- Recovery is attempted without recognizing the importance of pitch control and AOA
- Not maintaining a nose down control input until the stall warning is eliminated
- Pilot attempts to level the wings before reducing AOA
- Pilot attempts to recover with power before reducing AOA
- Failure to roll wings level after AOA reduction and stall warning is eliminated
- Inadvertent secondary stall during recovery
- Excessive forward-elevator pressure during recovery resulting in low or negative G load
- Excessive airspeed buildup during recovery
- Losing situational awareness and failing to return to desired flightpath or follow ATC instructions after recovery.
- Clear the area.
- Select an entry altitude that will allow the Task to be completed no lower than 1,500 feet AGL (ASEL, ASES) or 3,000 feet AGL (AMEL, AMES).
- Configure the airplane in the approach or landing configuration, as specified by the evaluator, and maintain coordinated flight throughout the maneuver.
- Establish a stabilized descent.
- Transition smoothly from the approach or landing attitude to a pitch attitude that will induce a stall.
- Maintain a specified heading, ±10 if in straight flight; maintain a specified angle of bank not to exceed 20°, ±10°, if in turning flight, while inducing the stall.
- Acknowledge cues of the impending stall and then recover promptly after a full stall has occurred.
- Execute a stall recovery in accordance with procedures set forth in the POH/AFM.
- Retract the flaps to the recommended setting; retract the landing gear, if retractable, after a positive rate of climb is established.
- Accelerate to VX or VY speed before the final flap retraction; return to the altitude, heading, and airspeed specified by the evaluator.
