Moog subsidiary Genesys Aerosystems has now delivered more than 1,000 S-TEC 3100 autopilots since starting production of the avionics unit in April 2018. The digital three-axis autopilot is STC’d for more than 200 single- and multi-engine aircraft, including 90, 100, and 200-series King Airs and the Piper Meridian/M500.
Features of the S-TEC 3100 include automatic trim, envelope protection/alerting, straight and level recovery, indicated airspeed hold, and altitude preselect. The unit is compatible with digital sources and EFIS displays from Garmin, Aspen, and other avionics manufacturers, according to Genesys Aerosystems.
