While on a training mission at approximately XA00 on jun/mon/01, at which time we were conducting stalls under simulated IMC, a king air that appeared to be descending came within 500 ft of our aircraft. Action taken by both the king air and our aircraft was a right turn to avoid collision. Prior to the occurrence, we had been heading 345 degrees while conducting multiple steep turns at 4500 ft. We then turned to heading 165 degrees and began set-up for multiple stalls. Upon completion of the first stall we ended on heading 120 degrees. We had recovered and were setting up for the second stall when the king air was spotted and an immediate turn to the right was initiated to avoid collision. At the time of occurrence, the WX was VMC, clear skies, visibility 10 NM. We were located approximately 15-20 NM nne of bfl. No damage to aircraft or personal injury resulted as of this situation.

Title: NMAC BTWN A BEECH A36 MANEUVERING DURING TRAINING AND A BEECH KING AIR DSNDING TOWARD THE BE36. BOTH ACFT MADE R TURNS TO AVOID THE OTHER PASSING LESS THAN 500 FT HORIZLY OF EACH OTHER.
Narrative: WHILE ON A TRAINING MISSION AT APPROX XA00 ON JUN/MON/01, AT WHICH TIME WE WERE CONDUCTING STALLS UNDER SIMULATED IMC, A KING AIR THAT APPEARED TO BE DSNDING CAME WITHIN 500 FT OF OUR ACFT. ACTION TAKEN BY BOTH THE KING AIR AND OUR ACFT WAS A R TURN TO AVOID COLLISION. PRIOR TO THE OCCURRENCE, WE HAD BEEN HDG 345 DEGS WHILE CONDUCTING MULTIPLE STEEP TURNS AT 4500 FT. WE THEN TURNED TO HDG 165 DEGS AND BEGAN SET-UP FOR MULTIPLE STALLS. UPON COMPLETION OF THE FIRST STALL WE ENDED ON HDG 120 DEGS. WE HAD RECOVERED AND WERE SETTING UP FOR THE SECOND STALL WHEN THE KING AIR WAS SPOTTED AND AN IMMEDIATE TURN TO THE R WAS INITIATED TO AVOID COLLISION. AT THE TIME OF OCCURRENCE, THE WX WAS VMC, CLR SKIES, VISIBILITY 10 NM. WE WERE LOCATED APPROX 15-20 NM NNE OF BFL. NO DAMAGE TO ACFT OR PERSONAL INJURY RESULTED AS OF THIS SIT.
