- What happens in a stall during a slip? 2 answers
I'd like to rephrase the question:
Often I forward-slip on final right right rudder. During this time, I use the ailerons to keep the aircraft headed down the center-line; the aircraft's bank varies slightly from left wing down, to right wing down.
At some point during this procedure, I have right rudder in and a slight right bank. I believe this is a skid; Is this something I should worry about? I would very much like to avoid skidding at all times, especially on final!
Previous question, for reference:
Assuming there is a crosswind and the pilot executes a crabbed approach, during the flare the pilot is going to have to use the rudders to avoid a side-load. My understanding is that this will result in an uncoordinated flying condition and is prone to stall-spin.
However, this (the flare) does not seem to be much of an issue among pilots. What am I missing? How is this any different than a skid?
