MINERAL WELLS, Texas, April 7, 2016 – Cool City Avionics, manufacturer of automatic flight guidance and control systems for helicopters and airplanes, today announced that it has embarked on a Supplement Type Certificate project to install its HFC-150 3-axis autopilot with Stability and Control Augmentation System on Airbus H120 (formerly the EC-120) helicopters.

“For the past couple of years, we have been receiving calls about the availability of our 3-axis HFC-150 autopilot and SCAS system for several Airbus helicopters, including the H120,” said Rick Milburn, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Quite a few inquirers have expressed their desire for the yaw axis, as well as the SCAS function. We already have an STC project well underway for the AS350, so we decided several months ago to start one for the H120.” he added.

The HFC-150 system reduces pilot workload, stress and fatigue, improves aircraft stability and passenger comfort, and increases safety in low-visibility conditions. The system is lighter in weight and much lower cost than the old 3-axis systems on the market. It is also a member of the family of Cool City autopilots that are the only ones certified to the latest FAA TSO, C198.
