Stalling With the Nose Pointed Down - Rod Machado
Share this page on: 
Most pilots associate stalling an airplane with pointing the nose above the horizon. However, it's entirely possible to stall an airplane with the nose pointed below the horizon, such as during a turn from base to final approach. In this instance, a pilot might increase the angle of attack without any obvious "visual" indication that he's approaching a stall. Watch the video to see how this can happen. This video is an excerpt from my upcoming new eCourse titled "How to Fly an Airplane," due out this summer (2024).
