Finally a digital autopilot!!!
« on: December 01, 2017, 10:08:11 PM »

I hate our analog systems.  This is a much needed update.  Our autopilots have about a 50% success rate for approaches.  I've had them fail more often than stay coupled all the way through the approach.  I can't wait to see these on the line.

This new upgrade for the S-TEC DFCS 2100/1500 autopilot allows the G600 and G500 to provide AHRS/ADC inputs, perform heading bug coupling, NAV/GPSS coupling and full approach capability, including ILS and LPV precision approaches. This allows for the removal of older attitude sources for the DFCS 2100/1500 with the installation of dual G600 or G500 systems.
