Alpha Systems AOA announced new and universally-available updates to their existing fleet of Angle of Attack systems. Mark Korin, President, says, “We can update any aircraft with an AOA display for safer flying, including AOA installations for pressurized aircraft.”
In other words, if your airplane already has an AOA system that gives you limited information or has an inadequate display, you can now use the superior Alpha Systems standalone AOA indexer display. Enhancements now cover flaps, gear advisory, four-point calibration, and streaming RS232 AOA data for any PFD integration.
Korin explained at the Alpha Systems Forum at this month’s Sun ‘n Fun Fly-In: “We can now give you our industry-leading HUD (“Valkyrie”) adapter for both of our top-selling displays, the Eagle and Falcon display.”
Alpha Systems AOA has more good news: the FAA has just approved their angle of attack system for use under an STC for the Mitsubishi MU-2B, under AIR100-14-110-PM01. The FAA affirmed that Alpha Systems “quality system meets the requirements of memorandum and is FAA approved as stated in 14 CFR 21.9(a)(2),” meaning that the road is clear ahead for Alpha Systems AOA to manufacture and distribute this system.
