LINCOLN, Mass., 19 June 2010. Training aircraft manufacturer Avidyne Corp. in Lincoln, Mass., has received technical standard order (TSO) certification from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the company's DFC90 digital flight control system. The DFC90 is an autopilot upgrade for existing Cirrus SR20 and SR22 aircraft that have Avidyne’s Entegra integrated flight deck system.

Avidyne also received TSO approval for Release 8.0 of the company's primary flight display software that makes the Entegra EXP5000 display compatible with the DFC90, an attitude-based digital autopilot system designed as a slide-in replacement for the S-TEC55X autopilot in existing Entegra-equipped Cirrus SR20 and SR22 aircraft.

The release 8.0 software and Mod 55 display hardware upgrades enable the DFC90 autopilot to use attitude information of Entegra’s integrated air data and attitude heading reference system (ADAHRS) without wiring changes to the aircraft.
