Garmin AOA FAA Approved, Now Shipping

Garmin is pleased to announce our Angle of Attack (AOA) system is now
shipping and approved by the FAA for installation in a wide variety of
general aviation 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, at-a-glance
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 higher
level of accuracy compared to lift reserve indicators. For quick and
easy installation, an adjustable pitot mounting mast is provided, which
may conveniently be attached to a new or existing inspection panel.

The Garmin AOA system is now available starting at $1,499. Customers may
choose from a variety of packages that accommodate 14V and 28V aircraft,
including heated and unheated options. Additionally, the GI 260
indicator is available as an option for G3X and G3X Touch for $249.
