Given that a plane can stall at any speed, it seems to me that an AOA is a very useful tool, however I have never used one.

Right now the g500txi does not integrate an AOA but the new g3x does. Does anyone know if Garmin is planning on adding this feature to the g500txi?

Does anyone here use a separate AOA? Any recommendations or experience to share is greatly appreciated...

Frankly speaking...the SE doesn't need an AOA. The Stall speed is so low and you are getting clear signals from the plane...so...for what?

I met an owner of p210n who swore by it... I have never used one and on paper, in theory, it makes sense, give that a plane can stall at different speeds.. with AOA being the critical factor

If you have the fear of stalling a Silver Eagle...you should never fly without safety pilot. Honestly...the plane is so easy to feel. The plane gives clear signals before a stall happens

I agree. It is a transport aircraft - so you fly it fast in the cruise, slow it to somewhere between 90 and 120 knots in the circuit, keep the turns to rate 1 in the circuit and then slow it to 72 over the threshold when established on a stable final. I can see the point in an AOA device if driving a sporty aircraft close to the edge of the envelope and doing manoeuvres that get close to aerobatics, but you really don't need one to fly this aircraft.
