50’s are wild at AirVenture 2019

It’s Oshkosh AirVenture time again. I’m very fortunate to get to attend all of the major events, but Oshkosh just brings out the hardcore airplane geek in me. With over 10,000 airplanes and countless other displays and activities, there’s just so much to see and do – while keeping my job. And all that’s not counting the myriad of special events and celebrations that EAA puts together each year.

This year is a great example: Oshkosh 2019 is the year of the 50’s – and I don’t mean Rock Around the Clock – type ´50s – I mean the 50th anniversaries of some amazing aviation and space accomplishments. The biggest of all being the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. That “One small step…” deserves an Oshkosh-size celebration all its own. 

When it comes to big airplanes, few are as big as the next one: This year we’re celebrating the 50th birthday of the truly amazing Boeing 747. And this year there’s also a reunion of P-51 pilots – well, that’s a 51, but close enough. And last, but certainly not least, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of EAA bringing AirVenture to Oshkosh! I do hope there’ll be cake.

Of course, Genesys Aerosystems has to get in on the 50’s action, and while we’re not old enough to be celebrating 50-years of anything, from now through July 31, 2019, we are offering special Oshkosh AirVenture pricing on a limited number of factory refurbished S-TEC 55X two-axis autopilots for Cessna 172 and Piper PA-28 aircraft. 

Announcing the Oshkosh 55X Special.

It’s a limited opportunity to save a lot on the amazing capabilities and workload-reducing features found in the S-TEC 55X two-axis autopilot, including:

• GPSS Roll Steering and Control Wheel Steering
• VOR/LOC/LOC back course intercept and tracking
• Gain enhancement for tacking GPA navigation
• Glide Slope capture
• Vertical Speed Command for climb and descent
• Heading and Altitude Hold
• Plus, it the system comes with a one-year warranty. 

If you fly a Cessna 172 or Piper PA-28, this is a deal you don’t want to miss. For a limited time, you can get a factory refurbished S-TEC 55X autopilot with new servos and hardware for an amazing price. But remember, the Oshkosh celebration deal ends on July 31, 2019.

We’re here to help.
