The System Sixty is an economical autopilot with three ATI-size, panel-mounted mode selector/programmer/annunciators. System Sixty PSS can be installed as a stand-alone pitch-axis autopilot and can complement any brand of existing roll axis autopilot. Not dependent on aircraft altimeter or attitude gyro, system inputs are derived from solid-state absolute pressure transducer and an accelerometer.
