Should the pilot miss the vibrating control wheel due to a distraction, such as an engine failure or encounter with adverse weather, an additional flight controller signal triggers the next step, taking pitch control away from the pilot. When the system senses the proper electrical signal from the AOA, the stick pusher’s mechanical actuator will push the control wheel forward to reduce the angle of attack. If the pilot’s not holding the wheel tightly, it will yank it right out of their hands. The pusher operates the same way at 5,000 feet agl or at 500 feet agl, so if a stall occurs close to the ground, the seconds after activation can become eye-opening. The shaker and pusher often fire in rapid succession, so should the pilot attempt to fight the pusher by pulling the control wheel back to raise the nose, the AOA senses the same stalling wing and will push the nose down once again.
