As a pilot you’re most at risk of stalling when you’re coming in to land. This is when you’re flying slowest, unfortunately you’re also very close to the ground so have little time to recover. This lesson was practising stall recovery while in landing configurations and simulating turning from downwind to base and base to finals. My friend Jon came along for the flight too, so there are some photos and video that he took included in the video.
This lesson went very well and everything seemed to click again. It really is much easier to learn and concentrate while not feeling air sick.

The cloud base around the normal training area was quite low (about 2400ft), luckily there was an opening a little further on that was just big enough to get higher than 3000ft that we needed for performing the stall training.
This video includes some of the photos and video that Jon took from the rear of the plane, my first ever multicamera video!
