SkyView HDX Autopilot Approved for Beechcraft Baron 58

Baroneers Add One More Panel Option to the Collection

Dynon's SkyView HDX is now available for Beechcraft Baron 58 and 58As, offering a cost-effective upgrade and 3-axis autopilot system.

The system is capable of flying instrument approaches when combined with a compatible IFR nav device, which altogether packs quite a bit of capability into a flight deck. When added to an existing SkyView HDX, the 3-axis autopilot lists at $11,192 for the hardware, modules, servo harnesses, and brackets. Additional niceties like the Autopilot Control Panel and Knob Control Panel are extra. The former allows for a panel of A/P controls for about $664, with the latter granting the kind of fine controls enjoyed by fastidious operators like altitude, heading, and altimeter settings.

The suite can be found at any Dynon Authorized Installation Center, as usual, though operators can choose to order their gear direct from the manufacturer and have it put in by an installer of their choice. 

The announcement rides along with news for added functionality for Dynon's Certified Autopilot lineup. Trim motor control and Auto-Trim is now available on a number of systems, removing a restriction previously put in place on Cessna 182, Beech 35, Beech 36, Piper Seneca, and Beechcraft Baron 58 aircraft. The changes add some nifty livability to the aircraft. Auto-trim "minimizes stick forces so that the Autopilot servos need only apply minimal force to the control surface to maneuver the aircraft". The upgrade "lets the servo have maximum control authority over the control surface for best flying performance," in addition to ensuring that the aircraft is in a trimmed condition when the A/P is disengaged to hand-fly it again.
