Advanced Autopilots

As Cardinal owners and pilots we know S-TEC as a reliable cockpit partner, ready to take the wheel on those long cross country flights or when we need to fuss with our in-cockpit technology.

Many of us also rely upon S-TEC in more serious situations, when we are flying single pilot IFR and need to shed workload and reduce risk. With over 40,000 autopilots installed in over 1,000 aircraft types, S-TEC has been a source of in-flight help and confidence since 1978.

The familiar S-TEC system (now under the corporate name Genesys Aerosystems) has evolved to provide the next level of aircraft control and precision within our highly integrated and digital panels. The S-TEC 3100 simply flys better while improving precision, adding features and reducing risk.

S-TEC 3100

The S-TEC 3100 is a fully featured, attitude-based next-generation autopilot that delivers a list of workload-reducing and safety-enhancing capabilities that were previously unavailable on aftermarket autopilots.

The S-TEC 3100 can reuse existing S-TEC servos previously installed, leading to an overall reduced installation cost and time.

Compatible with advanced digital sources & EFIS displays from Garmin, Aspen and others, the S-TEC 3100 delivers unmatched features and benefits:
  • 2-axis Digital Attitude Based Autopilot
  • IAS (Indicated Airspeed) Hold
  • Single Button Straight and Level Recovery
  • Under/Over Speed (Pitch) Protection and Warning
  • Roll Envelope Protection and Alerting
  • Altitude Preselect
  • Electric Trim and Autotrim
  • And much more

At CFO we consider the Genesys Aerosystems S-TEC 3100 to be the ideal digital autopilot for IFR aircraft and we appreciate their support of CFO.

About S-TEC

S-TEC Corporation, founded in 1978, offers a full line of autopilots for airplanes and helicopters. From low-cost analog wing levelers to sophisticated, digital, three-axis systems with Flight Director and envelope protection, S-TEC has FAA certification for nearly 1,000 aircraft types and has delivered over 40,000 autopilot systems.

Along the way they merged with Cobham Avionics / Chelton Flight Systems, originally founded in 1997, who developed the world's first FAA-certified 3D synthetic vision EFIS and GPS/WAAS navigator, a leader in integrated cockpit avionics systems for special-mission aircraft.

These innovators have come together in Genesys Aerosystems to provide advanced, leading-edge technology and agile avionics systems integration for rotorcraft and fixed wing aircraft, resulting in new features, capabilities and systems integrations.
