C-182 Non-Fatal Mendota, CA June 22, 1996

The pilot carried four parachute jumpers aloft; one left the aircraft at 4,500 feet and the last three left at 12,000 feet. After all the jumpers had exited, the pilot decided to do a power off stall. He stated that he was ‘curious about the gliding abilities of the 182’ and pulled the mixture control to idle cutoff when the aircraft was over the airport at 11,500 feet.
