After more than ten years of research, development, and certification effort, a team of highly-experienced autopilot professionals is now manufacturing and marketing the first professional, full-function, digital flight control system that is both lightweight and affordable for the light- and medium-sized helicopter fleet. No longer is system pricing beyond the cost-effective reach of this vital portion of the rotorcraft market.
All helicopter pilots now have available to them the safety enhancements and multiple flight benefits of the stability augmentation and autopilot systems utilized by pilots of the larger helicopters and virtually all fixed-wing aircraft for decades.
Cool City Avionics’ automatic flight control systems (autopilots) and stability augmentation systems (SAS and SCAS) offer the pilot the ability to more easily manage flights, while providing the passengers a more comfortable ride. SAS and autopilot systems are proven aids for reducing pilot stress and fatigue, reducing pilot workload and providing the pilot time to more easily perform flight-related tasks, all while providing an enhanced safety environment for everyone on board.
And, significantly, these are the first, and only, autopilots to be approved under the new FAA TSO-C198 and RTCA DO-325 MOPS.
