The General Aviation Joint Steering Committee encourages the General Aviation community to install and use angle-of-attack systems for better awareness of the stall margin. Studies suggest that a significant number of General Aviation accidents could have been prevented had the airman been trained how to identify stalls through both hands-on visuals and AOA technology.

Acquiring experience in a wide range of environments improves overall pilot performance. Installing new technology on an aircraft goes beyond the installation to becoming comfortable with an additional piece of equipment and how it can help the pilot.
