Chelton digital autopilot approved for Cherokee Six and Cessna 210

The FAA has granted Chelton Aviation STC approval for installation of its new digital AP-3C autopilot in Cherokee Six and Cessna 210 aircraft. This follows STCs for the Cessna 172, 182, 177 and 310, Beechcraft’s Baron and Travel Air, and the Piper Cherokee family (Warrior, Archer, Arrow, etc.), along with the Apache and Aztec. STC applications are in the final phase of approval for the Piper Arrow and Grumman Cheetah. Those will be followed by the Mooney and V35 Bonanza.

Chelton’s AP-3C autopilot operates with only three components. The autopilot features vertical nav steering, (VNAV), when coupled with an EFIS, WAAS GPS or FMS.

Excluding the Attitude Gyro, DG, or HSI, Chelton AP-3C autopilots sell for $11,000.
