I often hear this lesson referred to as “Stall Training”, as if the purpose is to learn how to stall the aircraft. The terminology I prefer is “Stall Recognition and Recovery”.
Aside from performing a very low energy landing, or doing some aerobatic maneuvers, I can’t think of a reason to ever intentionally fly the aircraft past its critical angle of attack.
The purpose of this lesson is to help you recognize the signs of an impending stall and learn how to recover from an inadvertent stall.
