Genesys, JetTech partner on the STC S-TEC 5000 Citation

Autopilot manufacturer Genesys Aerosystems is partnering with avionics installation and engineering company JetTech to develop new Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) for the Cessna Citations. The first STC will cover the Citation S550, Encore, Ultra and V.

The S-TEC 5000 is an attitude-based digital autopilot that integrates with modern avionics displays and flight management systems to provide features such as straight-line and level recovery, protection and envelope alert, precision approaches, coupled missed approaches and additional autopilot modes. and functions. S-TEC autopilots are installed in many airplane and helicopter models, but this will be the company’s first Part 25 upgrade application.

“We recognize that autopilots in this market segment are becoming obsolete and expensive to maintain,” said Jamie Luster, director of sales and marketing at Genesys. “Not only are we offering enhanced capabilities with this upgrade, but also recurring cost savings through new technology and a two-year warranty.”

Genesys (booth 565) is owned by aerospace flight command and control component manufacturer Moog. In addition to fixed-wing autopilots, Genesys offers a range of HeliSAS helicopter stability augmentation system autopilots.
