Safe Flight Instrument’s AutoPower autothrottle system will be made available to Hawker 800-series operators within a year, the company announced. While Safe Flight and installation partner West Star Aviation noted that while autothrottle systems have been available on larger business jets for years, this will be the first such system for a midsize jet, they said. “This is really revolutionary for midsize aircraft,” said Thomas Grunbeck, v-p of sales and marketing at Safe Flight. The AutoPower system will be certified under an FAA STC for the Hawker 800 series by West Star and will be available through West Star Aviation for all in-service and new Hawker 800s.
