  1. I write for two regional aviation magazines, and contribute articles to EAA publications. I’ve known the folks at Alpha Systems for years. They truly live, work, and breathe AOA systems. They produced units of their own design rebranded for other avionics manufacturers.

    I asked them to design a unit for my Lake Amphibian. The application is unique in several ways, as with the high-mounted pusher prop, the power-on stalling speed is HIGHER than power off–and every takeoff and landing is full flaps–no exceptions. They took my requests and suggestions and came up with a fine product.
