Provides AOA with a single glance during critical flight phases. Intuitive display provides both visual and audible indications of AOA. Normalized AOA provides superior performance in all flight phases. Works with G3X™ systems with GSU 25 and GAP 26 – just add the indicator. Available for installation as a standalone system for GA aircraft.
Add the Security of AOA Indication
Your angle of attack (AOA) can be a valuable tool in knowing when a stall might occur. When the angle between your aircraft’s wing and the oncoming airflow becomes too great, there won’t be enough lift to support the plane in flight. The Garmin GI 260 AOA indicator is designed to make this valuable AOA information easy to understand with one glance. Unlike systems that rely on lift reserve indication, the GI 260 uses what's known as normalized AOA, which provides the most accurate readout possible in all phases of flight. It provides both visual and audible alerts as a stall becomes increasingly imminent.
Available for Experimental and Certified Aircraft
The GI 260 receives AOA input from a GSU 25(C) air data computer connected to a GAP 26 probe. Since these are key components of the G3X™ flight display system, pilots of experimental/amateur built aircraft can add the dedicated AOA indicator to their aircraft by connecting as few as 4 wires. For pilots of general aviation aircraft, the GI 260, GAP 26 and GSU 25(C) can be added as a complete package. A universal inspection plate mount is included to aid in installation.

Per Garmin, the the AOA indicator is only for the G3X system.
The Garmin AOA system needs to be used with the G3X EFIS system for experimental aircraft.
The manual for the Garmin AOA system can be found under the documents tab for this part.
Per the manual this probe is not intended to be used in a pressurized aircraft.
No. The unit we sell is for experimental applications only.
This is the experimental version of the AOA meant to be used on the experimental G3X.
