THIS, and joepilot’s comment.

I learned to fly 42 years ago. Stalls made me nervous at first. Instructor finally had me do the “falling leaf.” A better term is “finding out you can still fly the airplane when it is stalled.”

By staying in the stall for minutes at a time, instead of seconds, you really learn how to feel the airplane, your AoA responses, and yes...that was when I started to find my way with the rudder.

I think we did them both power-on and off. Grateful he did that...really opened my eyes.
