Can Upgrade To A New 55X For Less Than $25K, Plus Install
S-TEC Corporation recently extended a special, one-time offer to
owners of Chelton autopilot systems, as both companies recently
came under the same corporate umbrella.
Owners of Chelton AP-3C Autopilots have the opportunity to
exchange their current systems for an S-TEC FiftyFive X System for
aircraft where certified, at a significantly reduced price.
Under terms of the offer, S-TEC will replace current Chelton
AP-3C autopilots with yellow-tag S-TEC System 55X systems, for a
flat exchange fee. For owners of single-engine aircraft, the system
cost ranges from $17,890 to $21,675, depending on whether owners
select autotrim or not.
For twin owners, the prices are just slightly higher -- from
$19,390 to $23,175.
To receive the special pricing, owners must bring their aircraft
to the S-TEC facility in Mineral Wells, TX and have the work
performed by S-TEC installation technicians.
As ANN reported, S-TEC was acquired by Cobham
plc in November 2007... joining other avionics notables such as
Chelton Flight Systems and Wulfsberg Electronics under the Cobham
Avionics and Surveillance Division.
