Avidyne’s DFC 90 Autopilot is a precision, attitude-based flight control system featuring all the standard vertical and lateral modes of operation of a turbine-class autopilot system, including Flight Director (FD), Altitude Hold (ALT), Airspeed Hold (IAS), Vertical Speed Hold (VS), Heading (HDG), and Navigation (NAV, APPR, LOC/GS, GPSS).
The DFC 90 also features unique functions engineered to prevent common GA autopilot issues like stalls, over speeds, or exceeding the flight parameter envelope – all at a price significantly less than competitive units that offer less functionality.

ATTITUDE-BASED – Greatly improves stability when tracking an ILS to minimums in windy conditions.
EP® – Avidyne’s Envelope Protection – Provides visual and aural warnings to the pilot and prevents autopilot-induced stalls and over speeds when the autopilot is engaged (this has been a major contributing factor in autopilot-caused GA accidents).
EA® – Avidyne’s Envelope Alerting provides visual and aural warnings to the pilot when the aircraft is nearing its normal flight parameters, even when the autopilot is off.
“STRAIGHT & LEVEL” BUTTON – Overrides all autopilot modes and levels the aircraft in both pitch and roll recovering the aircraft from unusual attitudes The S&L button provides added peace of mind—especially for a non-pilot in the right seat (i.e. Cirrus Parachute).
INDICATED AIRSPEED HOLD (IAS) – Provides constant speed flight level changes plus the new vertical mode includes a dedicated airspeed knob and a new airspeed bug on the PFD.
ENHANCED FLIGHT DIRECTOR – The capability of the DFC90 is vastly improved and significantly improves the ability to hand-fly approaches.
SYNCHRONIZED HEADING BUG – With the DFC90, turns are commanded with the motion of the heading knob. For example, the autopilot will execute a right-hand 270-degree turn if you rotate the heading knob right, 270 degrees.
Avidyne DFC 90
The DFC90 adds the precision of an attitude-based flight control system and Avidyne’s innovative, safety-enhancing EP® capability.
There are many other improvements, such as a dedicated Vertical Speed knob, pitch hold mode, wide autopilot engagement, additional annunciations in PFD 8.0, a dedicated GPSS button, automatic Back Course Approach selection, multiple color annunciations to indicate armed and active states, intercept mode annunciations, and Avidyne’s hallmark ease of use.
Can’t say enough positive things about it and the service that Avidyne has given over that time! They have always been very responsive to my needs and questions and taken care of any issues or training questions that I have come up with for them.
Impressive technology backed by an equally impressive team!
