In this short video, you can watch a student fly a series of accelerated stalls in the Extra 300L during steep turns. If the turn is coordinated, there's little tendency for a wing to drop; the nose just falls back toward the horizon. As I note in the audio, the key to maintaining control during any type of stall is immediately reducing angle of attack by releasing the back pressure on the stick or yoke. I also demonstrate a stall from a skidding turn--the classic setup for an incipient spin. Finally, the student inadvertently enters an accelerated stall during a 1/2 Cuban 8. The stall occurs as we arc over the top, demonstrating that an accelerated stall can occur during a vertical turn, just as in a turn in the horizontal plane. For more information about stalls, see Chapter 4 in the "Airplane Flying Handbook" (FAA-H-8083-3A).
