Bob Martens:

"You need to have a plan. You need to think about what you're going to do ahead of time so that it doesn't create so much panic that you're unable to safely fly the airplane.

You absolutely have to be sure that you don't stall the airplane. I've been to many aircraft accident scenes, I've evaluated hundreds and hundreds of accidents and pilots are not killed when they fly their airplane to the ground under control. They are killed when they stall an airplane into the ground. So maintaining airspeed safely above stall speed right on down to the ground is so very, very important."
