Today was slow flight and power on stalls.
Instructor: slow flight maneuvers are required as part of the practical examination for the check ride.
The Vest: Why the hell would the Vest want to go slow?
Instructor: slow flight maneuvers simulate traffic patterns before landing and after takeoff.
The Vest: The original question still stands.
Instructor: let’s just move on. Power on stalls simulate a blown takeoff or an excessive angle of attack while in flight.
The Vest: So, stalls simulate how to recover after a screw up.
The Vest: The Vest doesn’t plan for failure. You don’t see people practicing falling down or practicing break ups or divorces.
Instructor: Nonetheless, the correct reactions need to be practiced.
The Vest: Ok, is this right?
Instructor: Give me the controls! You are going to kill us!
Vest: So, what’s next? Practicing crashing and removing a catheter?
