Abstract

SO much of the aircraft designer's attention has lately been diverted toward major developments such as supersonics, that there is some possibility of old‐established hazards like inadvertent stalls being forgotten. The only difference in these nowadays is that stalling speeds are generally higher and aircraft can strike the ground harder. There is perhaps therefore good reason for considering stalling hazards once again. In doing so, my remarks are confined to civil aircraft, partly because the safety of Service aircraft must often give way to their operational needs and partly because their accident statistics are not readily available for discussion.
