well, how about this

take an average airline pilot up with a test pilot in a wonder jet. go to FL350 and stall the plane, full stall.


and VIDEO the whole thing from many viewpoints including the instruments, out the window

do it at night too

do it in clouds with nothing outside

show the nose down pitch attitude to recover and the altimeter winding down

show a G meter to show that the plane might go negative if the pitch down is abrupt.

record all the data that the FDR would get and feed it into the sims so we can all do it.

Quite frankly I wouldn't go up in a small plane for training unless I am being paid the full amount that I would get for flying a transport.

well, lets wait and HOPE that we hear soon what happened.
