Putting the nose down, even if you’re low, is sometimes tough for pilots to do when the plane is too slow or stalled. This article is good reading on the subject. We love to have our students practice stall recovery with pitch reduction (i.e., angle-of-attack reduction) only and no power. This helps pilots get comfortable with putting the nose down when a stall occurs, which is initially challenging for many people.
