Attitude-Based Digital Autopilot
Avidyne’s DFC90 Attitude-Based Digital Autopilot enhances precision of flight and improves safety for your aircraft.
The DFC90 autopilot is certified with the Avidyne Entegra PFD or the Aspen EFD1000 Pro PFD in the Cirrus SR20 and SR22.
The DFC90 autopilot is certified with the Aspen EFD1000 Pro in 25 models of the Beech Bonanza including the 35-33, 35-A33, 35-B33, 35-C33, 35-C33A, E33, E33A, E33C, F33, F33A, F33C, G33, H35, J35, K35, M35, N35, P35, S35, V35, V35A, V35B, 36, A36 and A36TC.
DFC90 is certified with the Aspen EFD1000 Pro in 16 models of the Cessna 182 Skylane Series including the 182E, 182F, 182G, 182H, 182J, 182K, 182L, 182M, 182N, R182N, 182P, 182Q, 182R, 182S, 182T, and the R182.
DFC90 is plug & play with the STEC55X, and STEC30/50/60-2/65 series autopilots may also be replaced by a DFC90 under these STCs.
DFC90 will utilize either an Entegra EXP5000 or Aspen EFD1000 Pro PFD as the attitude source.
The DFC90 adds the precision of an attitude-based flight control system and Avidyne’s innovative, safety-enhancing EP® capability.
The DFC90 has all the standard vertical and lateral modes of operation of a turbine-class autopilot system, including Flight Director (FD), Altitude Hold (ALT), Airspeed Hold (IAS), Vertical Speed Hold (VS), Heading (HDG), and Navigation (NAV, APPR, LOC/GS, GPSS).
Customers upgrading from the STEC 55X will notice several major performance and feature improvements including:
There are many other improvements, such as a dedicated Vertical Speed knob, pitch hold mode, wide autopilot engagement, additional annunciations in PFD 8.0, a dedicated GPSS button, automatic Back Course Approach selection, multiple color annunciations to indicate armed and active states, intercept mode annunciations, and Avidyne’s hallmark ease of use.
Plug & Play for Beech Bonanza and Cessna 182 Owners.
