New Customer Wins
Harbin Aircraft Industry (Group) Co. Ltd. China has added the KFC 330 Autopilot to its AeroVue cockpit solution in the Y12E turboprop utility aircraft. This solution is available for forward fit and aftermarket installation and will round out the full Y12E AeroVue cockpit solution currently being integrated by Harbin and BendixKing.
The KFC 330 is a full three-axis autopilot with a dual flight director that provides roll steering, altitude preselect, integrated flight director and emergency wing leveling. It offers both Instrument Landing System (ILS) and Localiser Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV) approaches. It features a high-contrast touchscreen display for easy readability and control and mode annunciation so that the pilot knows which mode autopilot is in, as well as a single knob to control frequently used functions, providing enhanced safety.
AeroVolga, a Samara-based Russian aircraft builder, has selected the BendixKing KFC 230 Digital Autopilot for its LA-8 aircraft, which seats eight people and can take off and land on both solid ground and water. This will be the first time BendixKing's KFC 230 is installed as standard equipment by an aircraft manufacturer.
The KFC 230, also known as the AeroCruze 230, is an all-digital autopilot that provides a wide range of capabilities to pilots. This includes several of the key features found in the KFC330, such as advanced flight control and ease-of-use functionality.
