Turn Pattern Common Errors:
Gaining altitude in reversals. Not lowering the nose as the wings pass level flight attitude,
usually due to fixating on the EHSI instead of scanning the horizon.
Not properly clearing the area in the direction of turn.
Not increasing back stick pressure in the 45° AOB turn to feel any G and consequently
Slow flight will be conducted in accordance with the T-6A Advance Handling Characteristics
Power Off Stall Common Errors:
Lowering the nose too far, resulting in excessive loss of altitude.
Not trimming for 125 KIAS glide.
While decelerating, allowing the nose to drop during the clearing turn, resulting in descent.
Approach Turn Stall Common Errors:
Failure to sufficiently hold the nose up prior to the stall.
Failure to maintain AOB during entry.
"Dumping" the nose on recovery, resulting in excessive altitude loss.
Cycling rudders in an attempt to keep the ball centered before flying speed is attained.
Not verifying a positive climb and verbalizing "aircraft climbing."
Nose attitude too high on recovery causing a secondary stall.
1. Instructors should not allow a poor ATS recovery to progress
into departure from controlled flight. If this does occur, you should
immediately assume control of the aircraft and recovery via the
Inadvertent Departure From Controlled Flight Emergency
Procedure in the NATOPS.
