I have had the benefit of flying aircraft equipped with AOA indicators, but not in the GA environment. All of my experience with AOA indicators has come from 20 years of flying in the military. Knowing what your actual AOA is, at all times, helps you to understand the maneuvering capabilities of your aircraft.
The SAFE Pilot Proficiency Program will take place in Melbourne, FL on March 8th and 9th, 2014. As a member of SAFE, I would like to encourage those of you who can attend this event to do so. The experience will be well worth your effort. It will be a busy weekend, but you will be exposed to many things that will help you to enjoy safer flying experiences. The information below comes from the SAFE Pilot Proficiency Program website, however I encourage you to visit the website to find out more about what will be happening and to register for the event.
