Add the Security of AOA Indication

Your angle of attack (AOA) can be a valuable tool in knowing when a stall might occur. When the angle between your aircraft’s wing and the oncoming airflow becomes too great, there won’t be enough lift to support the plane in flight. The Garmin GI 260 AOA indicator is designed to make this valuable AOA information easy to understand with one glance. Unlike systems that rely on lift reserve indication, the GI 260 uses what's known as normalized AOA, which provides the most accurate readout possible in all phases of flight. It provides both visual and audible alerts as a stall becomes increasingly imminent.

Available for Experimental and Certified Aircraft

The GI 260 receives AOA input from a GSU 25 air data computer connected to a GAP 26 probe. Since these are key components of the G3X™ flight display system, pilots of experimental/amateur built aircraft can add the dedicated AOA indicator to their aircraft by connecting as few as 4 wires. For pilots of general aviation aircraft, the GI 260, GAP 26 and GSU 25 can be added as a complete package. A universal inspection plate mount is included to aid in installation.
