GARMIN GFC 600 Autopilot for King Air C90 and E90

Certified and Ready to Install!

Garmin GFC 600 Digital Autopilot has received FAA STC approval in select Beechcraft King Air C90 aircraft and E90 aircraft.

The high-powered, robust autopilot servos are capable of handling the higher torque and performance requirements required of these aircraft. These servos boast a proven, fielded design and are hardened to operate in harsh high-altitude environments. The GFC 600 also supports automated periodic slip clutch testing, reducing maintenance costs. In addition to traditional autopilot capabilities such as altitude hold, vertical speed and heading modes, the GFC 600 also includes:

  • Built-in GPS roll steering capability eliminates the need for external roll steering converters, allowing for smoother navigation tracking when installed with a compatible navigator.
  • Level Mode button, which automatically engages the autopilot to restore the aircraft to straight and level flight.
  • An intuitive built-in control wheel in the mode controller provides convenient adjustment of aircraft pitch, airspeed and vertical speed modes.
  • Underspeed protection provides a low speed buffer to help prevent the pilot from stalling the aircraft.
  • Overspeed protection helps prevent the pilot from exceeding aircraft maximum speed (VNE).
  • Flight Director command bars can be displayed on a variety of flight displays, such as the G500 TXi/G600 TXi and select third-party flight displays.
  • Pilots can fly coupled go-arounds during missed approach sequencing. A remotely-installed go-around button commands the Flight Director to display the appropriate pitch attitude required for the missed approach procedure and activates a loaded missed approach when paired with the GTN™ 750Xi/650Xi or GTN 750/650 navigators.
  • Control wheel steering is available, which allows the pilot to adjust pitch, roll, altitude hold, vertical speed or airspeed references using the control yoke while the autopilot is engaged Safety, Standard Garmin Electronic Stability and Protection (ESP) is a standard feature with the GFC 600 and works to assist the pilot in maintaining the aircraft in a stable flight condition. ESP functions independently of the autopilot and works in the background to help pilots avoid inadvertent flight attitudes or bank angles and provide airspeed protection while the pilot is hand-flying the aircraft.
