It was time for some true slow flight, and after I powered to idle, held the nose up, slowing to 60, and dropped one notch of flap, I found that flying around, even in fairly steep turns, will quickly tell the pilot that the airplane’s not going to try anything scary. With full flaps and power, I comfortably flew it around at 45 knots. Rolling the wings level, I idled the Rotax and tried to hold the aircraft’s nose in the same place on the horizon as the little stall beeper began yelling. The frequency of the chirp, chirp, chirp increases as the wing senses the decreasing lift of an imminent stall. Entering the maneuver slowly, the airplane never did break, but just mushed along losing altitude. On the next one, I was a bit more abrupt with my back pressure. This time I could clearly feel when the wing stopped flying, something the angle of attack indicator confirmed.
