Think back to primary pilot training, which for some readers might have been yesterday. The instructor calls for a steep turn at 45-degrees of bank. She wants you to hold altitude and airspeed, keep the ball centered, and ... oh yeah ... roll out 360 degrees from where you started. Sheesh ... With bank established, you notice significant altitude loss and airspeed increase. Your best first-step recovery control input is to:


Increase elevator backpressure


Reduce the angle of bank


Add power to increase lift


Decrease power to decrease airspeed
