Garmin AOA system approved, shipping now!

Garmin news

Garmin has announced its Angle of Attack (AOA) system is now shipping and approved by the FAA for installation in a wide variety of GA aircraft. The entire system is comprised of the GI 260 AOA indicator, GAP 26 angle of attack probe and GSU 25 air data computer, which combine to display safety-enhancing AOA and audible alerts throughout critical phases of flight. 
The new Angle of Attack system supports the FAA’s recent initiative to broaden adoption of AOA displays to improve safety within General Aviation. Garmin’s GI 260 is designed for a quick understanding of AOA and offers audible alerts for high-workload situations. When approaching an impending stall, the GI 260 AOA indicator offers progressive audible and visual alerts as the aircraft approaches stall angle of attack. Because the Garmin AOA system corrects for weight, g-loading, density altitude and airspeed, it offers a high level of accuracy. For quick and easy installation, an adjustable pitot mounting mast is provided, which may be attached to a new or existing inspection panel. 
The Garmin AOA system is now available from $1,499 in a variety of packages that accommodate 14V and 28V aircraft.
