System Fifty Five X
High-performance, two-axis autopilot for reducing pilot workload in IMC through all modes of flight
The System FiftyFiveX is a two-axis roll and pitch autopilot which includes heading mode, VOR/LOC/LOC back course intercept and tracking, a gain enhancement feature for tracking GPS Navigation analog left/right deviation signals, glide slope (GS) capture and track, vertical speed command for climb and descent control, altitude hold, pitch trim indicator, control wheel steering (CWS) and VOR/LOC/GS off course deviation warning.
Also includes a GPSS roll steering feature for use with GPS receivers that have compatible digital roll steering outputs. Options include S-TEC Autotrim, ST-645 Remote Annunciator, and ST-360 or SA-200 Altitude Selector / Alerter. Autotrim is not available on some aircraft models; check STC list for approvals.
The FiftyFiveX is also compatible with various heading systems, HSIs, and flight directors. The programmer computer is an integrated design into the aircraft radio stack and comes with an LCD display for greater contrast and improved readability. The System FiftyFiveX requires a compatible heading system.
High Performance: Fully IFR-capable, with nav and glide slope intercepts that make it ideal for approaches.
GPS Roll Steering: Extremely accurate, hands-off GPS navigation.
Control Wheel Steering: Hand-fly aircraft and then let the autopilot take over to hold the existing turn rate and vertical speed.
Hundreds of STC’s: From light singles through piston twins.
