The world’s most popular light turbine helicopter, the Robinson R66, has a new aftermarket option that’s sure to be popular with owners.
Genesys Aerosystems has earned an FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the retrofit installation of its HeliSAS Stability Augmentation System and two-axis autopilot on Robinson R66 turbine helicopters.
Weighing less than 15 pounds, the system helps reduce pilot workload while providing hands-off control of the aircraft during all modes of flight, even with shifting winds or aircraft weight. Features of the two-axis system include altitude hold, NAV hold, heading hold and vertical modes, including coupled ILS approaches.
Standard pricing includes all required equipment in addition to the installation kit, but not installation or attitude source. The company expects to receive EASA certification soon.
