Brazil Validates DFC90 Autopilot In Cessna 182

Autopilot Provides Envelope Protection, Full-Time Envelope Alerting, And Straight & Level Capability

Avidyne has received Agência Nacional De Aviação Civil –Brasil (ANAC) validation for the installation of their DFC90 Digital Autopilot in Cessna 182-series aircraft when interfaced with the Evolution Pro Primary Flight Display (PFD) from Aspen Avionics of Albuquerque.

This DFC90 autopilot validation includes 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.  Aspen holds an Approved Model List Supplemental Type Certificate (AML-STC) and ANAC approval for their Evolution Pro PFD on a wide range of aircraft including these C182 models.

“We are pleased to add Brazilian certification of the DFC90 for the Skylane series,” said Patrick Herguth, Avidyne’s Chief Operating Officer. “The DFC90 adds significant performance improvements plus Envelope Protection and the Straight and Level button, which can dramatically enhance the safety, the utility, and the value of these aircraft.”

The DFC90 digital autopilot system provides Airspeed Hold (IAS), Envelope Protection (EP) and full-time Envelope Alerting (EA), which prevent stalls and overspeeds, and even provides monitoring and alerting when the autopilot is off.  The Straight & Level capability provides one-button recovery from unusual attitudes. The DFC90 was designed as a plug-and-play replacement for existing STEC55X autopilot systems. The DFC90 can use the existing 55X mounting tray, servos and much of the wiring, which dramatically reduces installation costs.  While not fully plug and play, STEC30/50/60-2/65 series autopilots may also be replaced by a DFC90 under this STC, making use of existing STEC servos and brackets.
