About the S-TEC 5000R Autopilot
The S-TEC 5000R is an advanced digital, attitude based, autopilot designed for every phase of flight for high-performance jets and turboprop aircraft. The S-TEC 5000R has a separate flight guidance computer (FGC) and mode control panel (MCP) for maximum flexibility in location of avionics LRU’s within aircraft. The MCP consists of buttons to allow the pilot to control the selected autopilot mode. Setting values and displaying the autopilot mode is controlled by the Genesys EFIS display. The S-TEC 5000R digital autopilot is the ideal system to maximize the capabilities of your Genesys Avionics Suite™ or other electronic flight instrument system with Area Navigation. Pilots / operators of turboprop and jet aircraft will appreciate the advanced features that make every phase of flight easier, safer, and more reliable. Advanced capabilities help reduce pilot workload while significantly improving mission efficiency. From “wheels up to wheels down” the S-TEC 5000R integrates with your digital EFIS or FMS to deliver effortless command and control, and the precision that is absolutely essential in today’s crowded airspace. The S-TEC 5000R is RVSM compatible and provides advanced features such as Straight and Level Recovery, Genesys EFIS Integration, Envelope Protection/Alerting, Precision Approaches/Missed Approaches and other advanced features.
