From now until March 31st, 2016, Genesys Aerosystems is running special promotional pricing for trading in an S-TEC System 30 or S-TEC System 50 autopilot for the S-TEC System 55X autopilot. Standard pricing is $18,961 Retail to upgrade however for the duration of the promotional period, the discounted retail price is lowered to only $11,995 retail (standard dealer discounts will apply). The 55X upgrade will allow for GPSS roll steering which allows sequencing from waypoint to waypoint as well as full approach capability with Vertical Speed and glideslope capture. The 55X is the most popular and capable autopilot for pilots flying light or hard IFR, and is an ideal upgrade to complete while also installing an ADS-B solution.
The upgrade uses the current servo installation so the upgrade requires much less labor than a new installation of an autopilot and will include the Autopilot Disconnect Alarm Unit, a new programmer and/or computer(s), wiring harness with associated hardware and in the case of an upgrade from a System Thirty, a new turn coordinator.
Please verify the 55X is STC’d in the specific make and model prior to ordering the upgrade and note that the System 30 or 50 programmer will need to be returned to Genesys Aerosystems in order to receive the discounted upgrade price. All orders must be received by Genesys Aerosystems by March 31st, 2016. If you have any questions, please contact Clinton for further information.
