Autopilot maker S-Tec announced that it is now offering factory installations of its Magic 2100 digital autopilot and single-side EFIS in the King Air 90, Conquest I and Cheyenne I and II. Operators purchasing the autopilot will receive a “free glass cockpit” with no installation fees through the offer from S-Tec and its parent company, Meggitt.
The Magic 2100 digital flight control system introduced the first all-new autopilot since Meggitt’s May 2000 acquisition of S-Tec. It was developed to be S-Tec’s top-of-the line model, with special features including GPSS (roll steering), course-intercept capability and digital vertical speed command. The corresponding “free” Magic EFIS includes a pair of 5.4-inch-diagonal displays portraying primary flight data and navigation information and Meggitt’s air-data attitude heading reference system. The installed price for the package is $119,800.
