Century Flight Systems 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.
As new requirements arise, functions can be added as desired to the expandable Century 4000.
To begin with, the main frame is the best designed autopilot built today fully worthy of the legacy of Century autopilots. The capture, track, soft-ride, and gust alleviation of this system are unparalleled!
Standard lateral axis features include Heading Hold, NAV intercept and track, fully coupled ILS approaches, localizer back course, VOR approach outbound intercept and track, lateral navigation steering and sequencing including en-route, terminal and approach segments with compatible GPS receivers providing ARINC 429 steering commands.
The pitch axis comes complete with trim prompting, pitch attitude hold, altitude hold, vertical speed select and hold, glideslope capture and track from above or below the glide slope and is fully capable of LPV and LNAV/VNAV approaches with compatible GPS WAAS receivers.
Automatic electric pitch trim, Flight Director or yaw damper expansions may be easily added to the Century 4000.
Options: The NSD slaved or non-slaved HSI system or other compatible HSIs may be substituted for the directional gyro. Altitude preselect and alerter is also available.
