Power-On Stall Procedures
Lesson Plan

DATE:
STUDENT NAME:
OBJECTIVE:
Familiarize the student with the how to perform a power-on stall, why it is important, and the aerodynamics relating to stalls

Exhibits satisfactory knowledge of the elements related to and performing power-on stalls

NOTE: In some high performance airplanes, the power setting may have to be reduced below the practical test standards guideline power setting to prevent excessively high pitch attitudes (greater than 30° nose up)
SCHEDULE:
Introduction0:05
Power On Stalls0:20
Conclusion0:05
TOTAL GROUND TIME:0:30
EQUIPMENT:
Aircraft Model, Paper, Pen, Marker, Whiteboard
INSTRUCTOR'S ACTIONS:
  • Familiarize the student with power-on stalls
STUDENT'S ACTIONS:
  • Complete assigned reading (see content above)
  • Ask pertinent questions
COMPLETION STANDARDS:
  • Ensure the student exhibits satisfactory knowledge of the elements related to power-on stalls
  • Selects an entry altitude that allows the task to be completed no lower than 1,500' AGL
  • Establishes the takeoff or departure configuration as specified by the examiner
    • Sets power to no less than 65% available power
  • Transitions smoothly from the takeoff or departure attitude to the pitch attitude that will induce a stall
  • Maintains a specified heading, ±10°, if in straight flight; maintains a specified angle of bank not to exceed 20°, ±10°, if in turning flight, while inducing the stall
  • Recognizes and recovers promptly after a fully developed stall occurs
  • Retracts the flaps to the recommended setting; retracts the landing gear if retractable, after a positive rate of climb is established
  • Accelerates to VX or VY speed before the final flap retraction; returns to the altitude, heading, and airspeed specified by the examiner
