AAIB Accident Report

What it called a “stall turn” is actually a rudder reversal. And although “stall turn” is really a misnomer... there is no intended entry to a stall... there is still an opportunity to enter a stall either while conducting the rudder reversal or right after the reversal when heading straight down and pulling too much AOA while still at low speed. -- Al Aitken
