Lesson 4: Aircraft Stalls

In this lesson we’ll cover one of our favorite topics, stalls!

We will first take a look at how airflow around the wing affects the stall (angle of attack), what aerodynamically happens during a stall, and then how to practice them.

As you advance in your training it will be time for you to explore the “backside” of the power curve, gain a better understanding of Angle of Attack and Relative Wind, and also practice stalling the airplane a few times.

Before you go into this dreaded part of your training (it’s actually very fun, and very safe despite what you may initially think), we’ll explain to you what is actually going on with the airflow around your airplane and more importantly, your wing.  To jump in, click on the first topic below!

When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.-Henry Ford
