Asked by: 4227 views Flight Instructor

I am preparing for my CFI checkride, do I recover from stalls at the first indication (stall horn), the buffet, or wait for the wing to completley stall?

    On a CFI checkride, you need to fly to Commercial standards. Your answer lies in the Commercial PTS, area of operation VIII, task B, point 6.
    As a CFI, this is the sort of question others will be calling on you to answer – You need to learn how to find these answers from the correct FAA resources.

    You tell em Kent. If you can’t find an answer in the books, you shouldn’t be teaching. Raise your standards an be a quality CFI kiddo.

    You will probably be asked to “teach”  maneuvers.  If it were to be stalls take a look in the Flight Instructor PTS FAA-S-8081-6C, XI. AREA OF OPERATION: SLOW FLIGHT, STALLS, AND SPINS.  For specifics relating to stalls, the various types of stalls for which you are responsible either through Proficiency or Demonstration.
    The words, “Exhibits instructional knowledge of the elements–” appear throughout the PTS for Flight Instructor.
    It’s more than just flying a particular maneuver.
    Take a look in the PTS at the Examiner’s Responsibilities, especially “satisfactory performance”.
    This one is a lot of work, as it should be!

    I’m curious and just a student. What is to be attained in a power on stall to meet PTS? Buffeting?
