Secondary Stall Secondary Stall

   This stall is called a secondary stall since it may occur after a recovery from a preceding primary stall. It is caused by attempting to hasten the completion of a stall recovery before the airplane has regained sufficient flying speed. When this stall occurs, the back elevator pressure should again be released just as in a normal stall recovery. When sufficient airspeed has been regained, the airplane can then be returned to straight and level flight.

   This stall usually occurs when the pilot becomes too anxious to return to straight and level flight after a stall or spin recovery (Fig. 11-20).
