Summary
176 Max talks with Tom Turner about the reality of where stalls are most likely to occur in the traffic pattern. The myth is that stall are most likely to occur in the base to final turn, but that is not the case. A lady pilot pilot talks about an encounter as a teenager with an airline pilot that transformed her life and launched her aviation career. Plus listener feedback.
