Recovery differences between Stall, Spin and Spiral Dive

[Ref. The Pilot’s Manual PM2 Ground School Page 86 – 89]

Stall recovery

  1. control wheel forward – reduce AoA
  2. Full power – minimize height loss
  3. in case wing drop, use rudder to correct – NOT aileron !

NOTES: Wing drops close to the stall, correct with rudder [the secondary effect of yaw (by rudder) is roll]


Spin Recovery

  1. Power off
  2. full opposite rudder – to oppose the yaw

Spiral Dive Recovery

  1. Roll wings level
  2. pull gently out of the dive
