6PC is the bestest Cirrus instructor too! You should look at his videos Maui Wowi and see how it's done! He rocks it!
That suggests to me that you'll land flat and firm if you're using an AoA indicator for that, unless you do it with no flaps.You are absolutely correct. And the key imo is to calibrate in the clean configuration. This gives you a slight edge with full flaps.
Uh, No you don't.Actually (and I plan on making this in one of my upcoming videos) is that if you land with the blue donut you get a much softer and "perfect" landing. No need to flare with a large pitch.
Not sure if it was directed to me. Yes I have 10 years 135 experience and was a 737 sim instructor.
That's fantastic! Love seeing that you have one. That white range is the same as the blue donut.I have no lights or buzzers for stall warning on my RV. But this gauge on the glare screen works great.
A "perfect landing" is when the the needle is as on the white line between Red and White when the mains touch. But I'm not perfect yet See - No Donut!
It's about the size of the tach the ricky racer guys put on their automobile dashboards.

I think they did an outstanding job on this video.You can even see with the Icon, they don't touchdown in the "blue donut" or green approach area. They reduce power and touchdown just into the yellow. I think landing flat in the perfect approach area would create a threat of bouncing back up or at least add an unnecessary ground roll.

If you wanted to educate us you would have written a post instead of spamming your YouTube channel. By the way, a promotion to raise awareness of a product is still a form of advertising.
[...] And this video shows how one can extend endurance in case of problems such as weather or holding in low fuel conditions. I am certain at least one fellow,pilot has found it useful.
I also find it quite interesting on this board that the "nasty" comments come from those without their photo or other real information. Hiding behind a keyboard is...need I say it?
It is annoying, isn't it.
So, I'll annoyingly cross post:
I've held back, but my one word impression of AOA indicators for GA aircraft: unnecessary.
I'm not a Luddite, and if you have the money to spend on another gadget, go for it.
But the same money spent on training might garner even greater benefits, and skills that apply to planes not loaded with every conceivable gadget.
Maybe some pilots "need" an AOA indicator to fly safely. I don't.
Agreed. It's about reducing fatalities in the base to final turn. Read my post about the FAA initiative.Agree 100%. Typed up a post in the AOA thread but it closed before I could post it. IMO if you can't fly a typical GA piston single without AOA then you need remedial training. I mean it's not like we're trying to land a max landing weight F-18 on a pitching deck at night.
