A cross-controlled stall can occur with little to no warning at all and can be extremely dangerous for a pilot experiencing this because it can be fatal is not handled correctly. A cross- control stall happened while the aircraft is in a skidding turn, a stall occurs. This type of stall usually occurs in a scenario where there is poor planning on the pilot’s part and the pilot poorly executes a base to final turn approach. When the pilot overshoots the centerline of the runway during this turn, a cross-controlled stall can occur. Recovery may be impossible depending on how close to the ground the aircraft is at that point. The normal approach to recover from this is to, increase the rate of the turn. The safest thing for a pilot to dowhen “overshooting” is to do another go-around. The pilot increases the bank angle and then increases back elevator pressure. After this, the pilot applies rudder in the direction of the turn. This helps the nose align to the runway. [ CITATION CFI19 \l 1033 ]References
