Genesys Aerosystems S-TEC 3100 is a fully featured, attitude-based autopilot that gives you a list of workload-reducing and safety-enhancing capabilities that were previously unavailable on aftermarket autopilots. Compatible with advanced digital sources & EFIS displays from Garmin, Aspen and others, the S-TEC 3100 delivers unmatched features and benefits: Precise, digital flight control for every phase of flight 2-axis (3-axis option on some models) Automatic Trim included Envelope Protection/Alerting Straight and Level Recovery Precision Approaches/Missed Approaches Indicated Airspeed Hold Altitude Preselect And much more! For the Mooney owners who currently have an S-TEC autopilot installed, the upgrade price will depend on the equipment already installed. This will be an outstanding bargain to get the benefits of a fully integrated digital autopilot, especially considering the additional safety features which it will bring. Upgrades start at $9,995 retail. For the Mooney owners who currently do not have an S-TEC autopilot installed. The 2-axis S-TEC 3100 is $19,995 retail for a new digital flight control system, which includes altitude hold, auto trim and altitude preselect, as well as new features such as envelope protection and straight and level mode. The 3-axis version adds Yaw Damper and is $24,995 retail. Genesys Aerosystems S-TEC autopilot STC process is determined by which model owners express interest. This past 6 months we have received requests from a number of Mooney owners’ inquiring about an upgrade path or for a new 3100 Autopilot system installation. We would need a commitment from 15 same model owners to proceed with the STC. The commitments would be in the form of a purchase order to a Genesys Authorized Installation Center. The biggest benefit to submitting a purchase order early is that we will extend the 2-year warranty to 3 years for all new parts from the factory (new installs and new controllers/servos). In addition, we are offering a 2-year warranty on any currently installed S-TEC servos. No matter how old they are. The extended warranty offer is only valid until we gain the STC. Once that occurs, the regular warranty period will be offered.

Hello All, Posting this poll to help assess our interest in upgrading an autopilot to the DFC90. Those who own Aspen PFDs & STEC APs could take advantage of the upgrade path to obtain a digital autopilot controlled through your Aspen. The control would allow altitude pre-select and constant airspeed climbs and descents. This video shows the DFC90 at work in a Bonanza: https://youtu.be/h3XgSevWf1M
