An Introduction to AoA Indicator Systems

Flight Simulation Workshops


Angle of Attack (AoA) indicator systems are becoming more prevalent in the general aviation community.  Come to the AoA Flight Simulation workshops and fly a true replica of the Garmin GI 260.  Experience flying scenarios using an AOA Indicator with Aural Tones on one of twelve Redbird FAA approved flight training devices.  Orientation and demonstrations by trained flight instructors.  Reserve your slot. Choose from four (4) 90-minute workshop time slots beginning at 1300 on Wednesday, July 24th.  Free.  Register today.

If you are a CFI, a flight school or simulator owner, or simply a pilot who wants to improve your flying, come to the Pilot Proficiency Center (PPC) on Wednesday afternoon and learn about flying (and teaching others to fly) using angle of attack as a way to be safer and to get the best performance out of your airplane’s wing. Most pilots were exposed to the concept of angle of attack (AOA) in ground school but have never been instructed in how to utilize it in flight because their training aircraft did not have any way of indicating actual AOA. Now that modern electronics have brought AOA into more cockpits, it’s time to find out just how simple AOA flying is; unlike flying by airspeed, you don’t have to think about your bank angle or “G” loading to figure out how close you are to the stall. AOA gives you the ability to extract maximum performance out of your wing when the chips are down. Attend this session to learn how to fly with AOA, and then share this new, valuable knowledge with other pilots in your community. AOA—it’s not just for test pilots anymore!
