Genesys to Apply for UK CAA Approval, as Well


June 7, 2023 – Genesys Aerosystems has announced FAA Supplemental Type Certification (STC) of its S-TEC 3100 digital autopilot system for Britten Norman Islander aircraft.

Genesys has been working in collaboration with Britten-Norman.  With this collaboration, the S-TEC 3100 autopilot will be offered on both forward-fit factory OEM aircraft as well as existing retrofit aircraft fleets. The STC includes the following Islander aircraft models: BN-2A-2, BN-2A-6, BN-2A-8, BN-2A-20, BN-2A-26, BN-2B-20, BN-2B-26, and BN-2T.

The 3-axis S-TEC 3100 autopilot replaces the previously certified Genesys S-TEC 55X 2-axis autopilot, on Islander aircraft. This update provides next generation digital performance upgrades and operational capability improvements.

Jamie Luster, Director Sales and Marketing Genesys Aerosystems: “We look forward to continue our collaboration with Britten-Norman to provide improved operational capabilities and user experience of Islander aircraft operators”.
