BendixKing has received the Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for its AeroCruze 230 Digital Autopilot from EASA.
The approval means more than 35 aircraft types can upgrade existing KFC 150 autopilots.
“Aside from all the other features that the AeroCruze 230 is known for, the function that has gained the most notoriety is the AWL or Automatic Wings Level,” said BendixKing.
“This feature quickly allows the pilot or student pilot to rapidly bring the aircraft under control in inclement weather situations or in unusual attitudes. The ability for anyone to bring the aircraft back to ‘wings level’ with the touch of a button means peace of mind for you and your passengers.”
Other features include:
- Full 3-axis autopilot
- Coupled Approaches
- Roll Steering
- Altitude Pre-select
- Precise turns to capture heading or approach even in high winds
- Drives flight director bars
- NAV, VOR, ILS, & GPS
- Touchscreen autopilot
Recommended price of the AeroCruze 230 starts at $9,800.
