Does a stall indicator work in gusting conditions for landing?`
An AOA indicator always works, but it may show fluctuating AOA during gusting conditions. Then, you merely adapt as you do with the AS indicator under similar conditions.

Basically, a plane will stall at different speeds based on weight and bank angle (could be anywhere from 60 to 90+ MPH), BUT ALWAYS AT THE SAME AOA under all conditions.
