Duncan Aviation Expands Autopilot Overhaul Capabilities

LINCOLN, NEB — Duncan Aviation’s avionics & instruments department has been acquiring new diagnostic test equipment to expand its autopilot capabilities. Over the past two years, several Bendix King product lines have been added to Duncan Aviation’s repair and overhaul capabilities. The latest addition includes Bendix King KS270C / 271C /272C.

Eric Olson, Duncan Aviation Autopilot Team Leader, says the Bendix King “Charlie” series is a more advanced servo that uses a surface-mount technology to benefit many general aviation aircraft models including Beechcraft, Cessna and Piper. “It is lighter weight and because these units are still being manufactured, parts are easier to get than older servos with feed-through or post-to-post technology.”

Now with seven test sets specifically designed to troubleshoot and test Bendix King autopilots, Duncan Aviation has overhaul and repair capabilities on the following Bendix King units:
•           KFC 100/150 series (except KC190-15 / 191-15 / 192-15)  
•           KFC 200/250 series
•           KFC 300 series
•           Majority KFC 400 series (call for more information)

In addition to the added test sets, Duncan Aviation has developed internal FAA-approved repair procedures to replace parts that are no longer available on the 200/250 autopilots.
