BENDIXKING
Since AirVenture Oshkosh in late July 2019, an innovative
family company known as TruTrak has been part of the
Honeywell avionics business after TruTrak's acquisition by
BendixKing. (See story beginning on page 34.)
And with that come the combined flight control
product lines of both BendixKing and TruTrak. The
products of BendixKing and TruTrak cover a broad
spectrum of displays, size and capabilities.
BendixKing's AeroCruze 230 provides owners of
existing BendixKing flight control systems with a way
to step up in functionality without biting the bullet for
an expensive revision of many existing BendixKing
installations. This unit is designed to fit within the
existing form factor used by the legacy KFC 150 flight
computer. BendixKing also designed the AeroCruze for
remote mounting to provide space for KFC 200 and 250
installations.
The AeroCruze allows reuse of legacy KFC 150, KFC
200 and KFC 250 autopilot servos, offering owners
the simplest, most cost-effective upgrade path for their
autopilot, according to the company.
The KMC 231 Mode Controller gives the pilot control
and annunciation functions with a glove-friendly touch
interface and color LCD screen; the unit employs
dedicated controls for frequent tasks.
The unique mechanical design of the KMC 231
seamlessly integrates with the AeroCruze computer,
allowing it to fit in the same mechanical location of the
panel-mounted KFC 150 autopilot flight computer.
Meanwhile, the TruTrak line remains one of the most
diverse catalogs of flight control systems available for
certificated and experimental aircraft.
For experimental aircraft, TruTrak offers models
starting as low as $2,100 for one of the Vizion models
from a list with three different size configurations. All
three two-axis systems share the rich features list, which
includes two standard servos, built-in ground track DG,
track select mode, GPS nav mode, GPS steering mode,
altitude hold, emergency AP level mode and far more.
These interface with Dynon SkyView, Garmin G3X
and G3X Touch, AFS 5000 Series, Grand Rapids GRT
HX/HXr and others.
For $5,000, operators of certificated aircraft can
choose from among three size variations of the PMA
Vizion, which share the same features list as the Vizion
experimental models.
DYNON
Since before the company added certificated avionics
to its product mix, Dynon offered its experimentalaircraft customers an autopilot option for its PFDs.

What was true for the experimental, amateur-built
market remains true today for Dynon's certificated
products.
For example, a Dynon SkyView System becomes a
full-featured dual-axis autopilot for the incremental
cost of the servos: $750 each. That option represents a
significant saving over the cost of a separate autopilot
system.
Every Dynon autopilot can fly magnetic heading, GPS
ground track, and horizontal Nav from any connected
compatible radio or GPS. Now with new IFR capabilities,
the autopilot also handles fully coupled approaches,
coupled VNAV, IAS Hold, Mode Sequencing, and Flight
Director guidance.
Additional standard features include emergency
180-degree turn capability and a new Level button to
immediately return the aircraft to straight-and-level
flight.
The SkyView Autopilot now also features an alternate
new set of simplified controls that streamlines controlling
the modes most-often used, such as HSI+ALT for
following navigation sources from GPS flight plans,
or TRK+ALT for flying in the directions chosen. And
because Dynon's autopilot takes its input from the
company's EFIS systems, the flight control function
respects limits on bank angle, airspeed and G limitations.
GARMIN
Garmin's latest flight control systems, the GFC
500 and GFC 600 flight control packages, reflect the
company's embrace of digital sensing and control.
The revolutionary GFC 500 autopilot brings
unprecedented levels of capability, reliability and
affordability to light single-engine, fixed-wing general
aviation aircraft. The GFC 500 leverages Garmin's
advanced attitude-based flight control technology
developed for the GFC 700 autopilot, which drives
Garmin's most-advanced glass flight deck systems such
as the G3000 integrated flight deck.
Garmin designed the GFC 600 for aftermarket
installation on high-performance single- and twinengine piston aircraft, turboprops and light jets. Like its
companion GFC 500, the GFC 600 offers an array of toplevel safety and performance features.
Both offer envelope protection, automatic level
recovery from extreme attitudes using solid-state attitude
and air-data sensors in place of mechanical gyros.
Smooth best describes the experience of flying behind
both the GFC 500 and GFC 600.
