The plane has angle of attack and airspeed sensors and a custom stabilizer that makes full use of them.
Side-looking video to give a better understanding of the AoA range associated with circuit/slow flight and landing. The telemetry display has AoA on the left (degrees), airspeed on the right (km/h). After the initial semi-high speed pass, the landing circuit is flown trimmed to "threshold alpha" around 13 degrees that seems to give just the right amount of excess energy for landing.
