What is stall of an aircraft?

The stall of an aircraft can occur in two ways: 1. Wing stall and 2. Engine stall. 1. Wing stall is when the angle of attack (AOA) of the aircraft is too high (the angle between the airflow and the longitudinal axis of the aircraft). The optimum angle is 4°. Stall usually occurs at 15°. Stall occurs because the air flowing over a wing is insufficient to produce the pressure difference to produce the lift required. So in a wing stall, the weight of the aircraft is greater than the lift of the aircraft. 2. Engine stall occurs when the forward air speed of the aircrft is insufficient for the combustion of the fuel to take place. Ideal ratio is 14:1 (oxygen:fuel). If the ratio falls to much then the air becomes turbulent and causes the engine to 'choke'. An engine stall, if not corrected, will lead to a wing stall as the thrust required to produce the lift is insufficient, therefore the weight is the leading force.
