Century 2000 Autopilot

  • Print

Century understands the real world of the cockpit and knows how to transpose these conditions to reliable hardware. Now it's done in a way to allow each pilot the equipment needed to do the job.

Century 2000 Autopilot

As new requirements arise, functions can be added as desired to the expandable Century 2000.

To begin with, the main frame is the best designed single axis autopilot built today fully worthy of the legacy of Century autopilots. The capture, track, soft-ride, and gust alleviation of this system are unparalleled!

The pitch axis comes complete with altitude hold, glideslope grabber circuit, capability for altitude preselect, automatic and manual electric trim, all certified to the safest standards so that test lockouts are not required.

Flight director or yaw damper expansions may be easily added to the Century 2000.

Options: The NSD slaved or non-slaved HSI system or other compatible HSIs may be substituted for the directional gyro. Altitude preselect is also available.

Century 2000 Specifications

Single Axis System

Panel Space 6.24 x 2.25 inches
Weight 5.8 lbs.
Power 1.2 amps @ 14 or 28 VDC

This complete roll axis autopilot features continuous roll/nav/voltage monitors, heading hold, heading select, NAV (VOR/RNAV) /LOC/BC anticipative intercept and track, automatic soft track, auto 45-degree intercept, and all angle intercept with HSI.


Second Axis Expansion

Panel Space No additional required.
Weight 9.3 lbs.
Power 1.1 amps @ 14 or 28 VDC

Pitch expansion adds altitude hold, attitude command, electronic altitude hold, G/S capture and track, proportional pitch trim, control wheel steering, continuous pitch/GS monitors, and automatic pitch synchronization to the existing roll section.


Flight Director Expansion

Panel Space No additional required.
Weight 0.4 lbs.
Power 0.3 amps @ 14 or 28 VDC

Flight Director
The flight director expansion computes the necessary roll and pitch attitudes needed to intercept and maintain headings, courses, attitudes, and altitudes. These computations are then displayed through the flight director horizon as steering commands, greatly simplifying instrument flight.


Yaw Damper Expansion

Panel Space No additional required.
Weight 2.8 lbs.
Power 1.9 amps @ 14 or 28 VDC

Yaw Damper
The Yaw Damper is a subsystem which enhances directional stability by reducing short-term oscillations in the yaw axis, therefore enhancing passenger comfort. In addition, it maintains coordinated flight during turns. The yaw damper is activated with autopilot engagement but may be operated independently. This expansion may be added to any package.
