Technology such as angle of attack indicators is increasingly affordable for GA pilots and will be covered in a separate Topic of the Month presentation.

Teaching Points:

  • Create maneuvering flight hazard awareness.
  • Describe typical maneuvering flight accident scenarios.
  • Discuss best practices for successful maneuvering.
  • Encourage pilots to seek training and proficiency in maneuvering flight operations.
