Trio Autopilot Update

Postby Coolin170 » Wed Feb 17, 2021 7:11 pm

To those few who would like A/P option, Jan said she would include the following info in the next flypaper. We are up to at least 11 signed up. The more who sign up, the sooner it could become an option.
Jeff Odum added “Please note that we now have a few projects in pipeline we have committed to finish before we start anything new."

“Due to lack of preliminary interest, the project of certifying the Full-featured Trio Pro Pilot digital autopilot for Cessna 170 A&B aircraft by the STC group has been on hold since last summer. By 2/15/2021 eleven (11) have signed up. Please let the STC group know if you are interested. TheSTCgroupllc.com

The system price is $5,595.00 and labor to install in most shops is usually 30 to 40 hours. This includes Trio Pro Pilot Control Head, 2 Servos, complete wire harness, 2 Switches, 1 Circuit Breaker, Placard, STC Kit Hardware and STC paperwork.

For Deposit signing up, STC group is exploring a “group buy” for 170 models. There will be a sliding scale for how many people participate. $500-$1,000 deposit would be required before the project begins.”

Received an update from Jeff Odum today on signups for the Trio Pro Pilot Digital Autopilot:

Hello Bill,
It has increased to about 20 people. Once we clear our projects off the table we look to begin.
Post Osh Kosh most likely.
