Test Flight Gone Wrong || Pilot Saves Plane

During this pilot training exercise, the plane is meant to simulate an engine stall, leading the pilot to have to quickly save the plane! The plane loses a little more air than intended as it travels towards the ground, but luckily the pilot keeps his cool and the motor eventually kicks back on allowing him to pull up and complete the intended exercise.

  1. @JukinVideo – I hate to break it to you but this looks more like he's practicing spins. Some of what you say is true, he does force the plane in to the stall, but the correct inputs to recover from a stall (full right rudder, power to idle, forward pressure on the controls) was not followed. He appears to leave some power in (typical to promote the spin) and thenn he doesn't initially drop the nose, and it looked life left rudder was applied (again typical in spin practice – Cessnas are hard to spin). Once he enters a flat spin, and eventually a dive, the pilot doesn't seem to be reacting to the failure. More that he's recovering from an anticipated spin. Might want to check the video source, or change the title. Just a thought, and yes I'm a pilot.

  2. Entered left hand spin looked to me like he held the spin little longer the more you spin the longer it takes to recover he knew what he was doing generally Cessna assuming its a 172 not suppose to spin more then 3 times. Cessna high wing just release the yoke point the noise down it will recover without opposite rudder.

  3. OUT OF COOOONTROOOOOOL….FLIGHT GOOOOONE WIIIiiiiIIiiiiIIiiiLD….PIIIIILOOOOT SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAVES THE DAAAAAY….SOMEFRIIIIIIIIES MODAFOKA….hahaha, yeah…if you fly any aerobatic plane you know this is not even close hahahaha get out of here mate…but cool to watch…maaan..

  4. This is an intentionally induced stall spin. Most any pilot who continues on past their private pilot certificate has to complete this training. Especially to get a CFI (flight instructor certificate.)

  5. the test flight would have gone wrong, if he crashed!!!! he didn't!! so technically gone RIGHT!.

    yes.. he lost more height than intended.. but the fact that he was able to save the plane before crashing… THAT IS GONE FUCKING BEAUTIFUL… now change the title again!!!

  6. This looks like it was an intentional spin. Power idle, nose up for the stall, as the plane stalls, full back elevator and full left rudder to enter the spin.

    Recovery is as simple as making sure the power's still idle, ailerons are neutral. Rudder opposite the spin and brisk forward motion on the controls to break the stall. These small trainers are VERY docile and you have to try to get them to stay in a spin that long. Hell, often you can just let go of the controls and the plane will recover almost by itself. I sure wouldn't have held it for that many rotations.

    Anyway, this has nothing to do with the engine. The engine's fine. It's an aerodynamic wing stall.

  7. Wait I'm confused. So you were trying to do a spin? In most light trainers, they are very easy to get out of and fun to do. Just remember PARE. I am just confused what an "engine stall" is.

  8. A.) This isn't a stall, this is a spin.  B.)The engine never failed, the throttle was taken back to idle.  C.) This is a training maneuver and can be held as long as you have a safe amount of altitude to lose.  Here in the United States, the FAA only requires pilots going for an Instructor rating or commercial rating to practice this.  Though every pilot is required to do normal stalls.  And to save people from confusion, simulated engine out procedures do NOT include stalls or spins.  The same can be said in reverse, when practicing stalls and/or spins, you do NOT shut off the engine.
