A stall resulting from improper stall recovery technique of a power-on or power-off stall.


To demonstrate secondary stalls to show how to recognize the characteristics of the stall and the correct methods of recovery.


         Clear the area

         Choose forced landing area

         Configure aircraft for a normal power-on or power-off stall, with altitude as necessary to recover ≥1500 AGL

         Select outside references

         During recovery from initial stall, quickly increase the pitch attitude again while maintaining directional control with aileron and rudder pressure, allowing the airplane to enter a secondary stall


         Reduce the angle of attack by releasing back-elevator pressure, simultaneously increasing throttle to full (if not already)

         Anticipate left-turning tendencies with right rudder pressure

         Return nose to straight-and-level, coordinated flight

         Maintain ball centered

         Upon positive rate of climb, retract flaps and gear as necessary

         Look for traffic
