Genesys Aerosystems brings together Chelton Flight Systems, Inc. and S-TEC Corporation, previously doing business as Cobham Avionics.
Chelton Flight Systems, originally founded in 1997, developed the world’s first FAA-certified 3D synthetic vision EFIS and GPS/WAAS navigator and has grown to become a leader in integrated cockpit avionics systems for special-mission aircraft. Key technologies include synthetic vision with three dimensional highway-in-the-sky navigation, integrated flight management and hazard alerting, and ultracompact, highly ruggedized sensors that provide ultimate customer benefits of increased safety, improved dispatch rates, mission flexibility, and seamless future growth. Approved for all classes of aircraft, the company’s uniquely customizable open-architecture systems dramatically reduce integration costs and schedules for both OEM and retrofit applications. Chelton Flight Systems products have been certified on over 700 different aircraft types.
S-TEC Corporation, founded in 1978, offers a full line of autopilots for airplanes and helicopters. From lowcost analog wing levelers to sophisticated, digital, three-axis systems with Flight Director and envelope protection, S-TEC has FAA certification for nearly 1,000 aircraft types and has delivered over 40,000 autopilot systems. The company’s new HeliSAS brings digital, full-authority autopilot technology to the market in a package weighing an unprecedented 15 lbs. Available as a stability augmentation system only or with all autopilot modes, HeliSAS dramatically enhances safety for light single- and twin-engine helicopters.
