Completion Standards
The lesson is complete when the pilot-in-training can:
  • Using partial-panel and full-panel instrument reference, recognize the typical indications of stalls and recover without abrupt control usage.
  • Perform correct recovery techniques from unusual flight attitudes, using full- and partial-panel instrument references.
  • During partial-panel instrument references, maintain positive aircraft control with altitude +- 200 feet, heading +-15 degrees, airspeed +- 15 knots, and desired climb and descent rates of +- 150 feet per minute.
