stall break

stall break
The moment during the execution of the stall maneuver when the aircraft nose comes down as the wing loses lift. To instigate the stall maneuver, the aircraft nose is raised by moving back the control column. This results in a reduction in the speed and the tendency of the nose to drop, thus necessitating further backward movement of the control column. This process is continued until the break takes place. The aircraft is recovered by decreasing the back pressure on the controls and applying full power to accelerate away.
