Genesys Aerosystems has delivered more than 1,000 S-TEC 3100 autopilots since starting production in April 2018.

The company's S-TEC autopilots are certified on multiple fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft makes and models for general aviation and special mission aircraft. Over 200 aircraft makes and models are now approved for installation of the S-TEC 3100 autopilot.

“We are excited that so many aircraft owners have selected the latest Genesys autopilot in an effort to bring more safety enhancing features to their flying,” says Genesys director of sales and marketing Jamie Luster. “Genesys is committed to continued advancement of our autopilot features, and we value the feedback received from current customers to assist us in prioritising our research and development efforts.”

Available aircraft for installation include: Beech 55, 56, 58, 95 series (Barons), Beech 90, 100, 200 series (King Airs), Beech 1900 series, Cessna 303, 310, 320, 340, 414, 421, 425 series, De Havilland DHC-6 series (Twin Otters), Pilatus PC-6 series, Piper PA-31, 46, 60 series, and Twin Commander 500, 560, 680, 681, 690 and 695 series.

The S-TEC 3100 is a two-axis digital autopilot, with three-axis available on some models, that brings enhanced features such as automatic trim, envelope protection and alerting, one button straight and level recovery, indicated airspeed hold and altitude preselect (requires baro input).
