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, along with the Apache and Aztec. With the STCs in hand, Chelton can now offer Cherokee Six and Cessna 210 owners the first autopilot developed for GA aircraft with vertical nav steering, VNAV, when coupled with an EFIS, WAAS GPS or FMS. Chelton autopilots dampen the effects of turbulence since altitude holding is based on an attitude gyro instead of traditional rate-based deviation or averaging formula.
Excluding the Attitude Gyro, DG or HSI, Chelton AP-3C autopilots sell for $12,650.
