Bendix/King & S-TEC Autopilot Computer-based Trainer

Computer-based Autopilot Trainer 

The ElectronicFlight Autopilot module covers the operation of the Bendix/King KAP 140, KFC 225 and S-TEC 55/55X/550 (including the ST-360 Altitude Selector/Alerter). The theory, function, operation and procedures also encompass the Bendix/King KFC-150/200/250 autopilots as well as the entire line of S-TEC General Aviation autopilots.

The module addresses a total void in autopilot education and details the general theory of autopilot systems available for general aviation aircraft. The training explains the methods employed for sensing, computing and driving the aircraft.

Basic stability and feedback systems are explained as well as the various systems driving the autopilot. Navigation and trim system operation are explained in detail with the use of moving graphics and concept demonstrations.

After successful completion of this training module, the operation and familiarity of the Autopilot system should become second nature when it counts the most—under high-workload situations. At the very core of the self-paced CBT (computer-based training) program is the ElectronicFlight Complete Learning™ Methodology that focuses on the following basic elements:


  • Instill conceptual knowledge, instead of rote memorization
  • Implant mental models (a picture imprinted into permanent memory)
  • Present the conceptual organization of a system
  • Provide requisite knowledge using highly graphical methods
  • Reinforce knowledge with targeted practice exercises
  • Implement feedback and remedial review when checked for retention
