Ice Induced Stall Pilot Training Video

December 19th 2016

A very good video on Ice Induced Stalls from the FAA that was updated recently. The angle of attack at which an airfoil stalls can be lower when it is contaminated with ice, thus the pilot may not even hear a stall warning when the plane starts to stall at a lower airspeed than normal. Also, extending flaps changes the downward airflow over the horizontal stabilizer, increasing the angle of attack. Recovery from a tail stall is opposite of a wing stall as you would need to pull back on the yoke.
