Cool City Avionics Receives Force Trim TSO

MINERAL WELLS, TX – Cool City Electronics, Inc., dba Cool City Avionics, a manufacturer of low cost, professional-grade automatic flight control systems and stability augmentation systems for helicopters, is pleased to announce that it has received FAA Technical Standard Order (TSO) authorization for its FT-100 Force Trim System for helicopters. The STC for its installation in the Robinson R44 has been completed and the STC issuance is pending.

The new FT-100 holds the cyclic in place using a Force Gradient System that provides a “force feel” as the control is moved away from its center “engage” position. The system gives the pilot short-term “hands free” time to perform other activities besides flying and reduces his stress and fatigue. The FT-100 is priced at $3,995, plus installation kit and labor.

The Force Trim System, when installed with the company’s SAS-100 Stability Augmentation System, becomes an SFT-100 (SASPlus), a low-cost combination that gives additional “hands free” time and reduces the effects of turbulence and improves the handling qualities of the helicopter. The SFT-100 system is available at a special introductory price of $19,995, plus installation kit and labor. The SFT-100 will be easily upgradeable to the new HFC-100 Autopilot/SAS, since the HFC-100 utilizes the same servo and actuator installation.

Complete information about the FT-100 and SFT-100, along with other company products, is available on the company website at www.CoolCityAvionics.com/products. The company’s products are available from its authorized dealers, listed at www.CoolCityAvionics.com/dealers.

Cool City Avionics has been developing and flight testing its new family of light weight, full function, professional-grade stability augmentation systems and autopilots for helicopters since late 2004. Cool City is now in the final stages of FAA certification of its Automatic Flight Guidance Control System for helicopters. Cool City digital flight control systems for airplanes are now in development with planned availability in 2014.
