Angle of Attack

Post by Adriaan Kriel »

If the Angle of Attack is increased beyond the Critical Angle of Attack, the wing will no longer produce sufficient lift to support the weight of the aircraft:

Unless the airspeed is greater than the normal stall speed.
Unless the pitch attitude is on or below the natural horizon.
Regardless of airspeed or pitch attitude.
In which case, the control column should be pulled-back immediately.

Regardless of the airspeed or attitude.
It is important to remember that a wing stalls whenever the critical angle of attack is exceeded.
