 - December 13, 2011, 1:38 PM

The FAA has issued a proposed advisory circular that would, as a core principle, include “emphasis of ‘reduce angle of attack’ response as the primary response for stall events.” According to the proposed AC, “The primary goal of this proposed advisory circular is to provide training, testing and checking recommendations designed to maximize the likelihood that pilots will respond correctly and consistently to unexpected stall warnings, aerodynamic stalls and/or stick pusher  activations.” Comments are due Jan. 12, 2012.
