Angle of Attack Awareness

The General Aviation Joint Steering Committee’s (GAJSC) loss of control workgroup believes that a lack of awareness, with respect to angle of attack (AOA), has resulted in the loss of aircraft control and contributed to fatal GA accidents. The GAJSC also maintains that increasing a pilot’s awareness of the aerodynamic effects of AOA and available technology will reduce the likelihood of inadvertent loss of control.
