Century I Wing Leveler/Autopilot 6.3

   (0 reviews)

FSX - Legacy Avionics continued, this time as a non-average "rental" autopilot, 
a Century I. A Turn and Bank Indicator-based Wing Leveler and NAV Tracker.  Included
is the Pilot's Manual for the Century I, which like most light aircraft do not 
have altitude hold, nor any glideslope linkage.  While developing an update for my
2017 Century IIB System, I aimed my endeavor toward the Piper Cherokee 140's and
came up with a "single-gauge" replacement "pilot workload relief device" we used at 
the time, a Century I System.  This update removes all Cherokee 2K2X Project panel
items that are no longer necessary, including the Turn and Slip Indicator and an 
optional autopilot with a simpler, yet effective wing leveler simulation.   
Installation again is by Text File editing, as written in the readme.txt file or 
the recommended FS Panel Studio Pkg.  A Project by Ron Prindle  

This gauge maybe used in any light General Aviation airplane, as the sole "autopilot",

however, it listens to a normal Cessna.dll VOR1 indicator and the NAV/GPS toggle switch

provided in the FSX Extra 500 airplane, I have not tested it with any HSI's nor any other

RNAV-based devises other than the FSX GPS Systems that follow the Flight Planner.

 

To my knowledge, any D.G. that has a Heading Bug works with the "tracker".

 

It is simple, yet better fits an airplane like the Piper Cherokee 140 Projects that never

would have had a Bendix-King AP nor an HSI in real life.   The only catch is, the existing Turn

and Slip indicator is replaced by this device and an enclosed Word.Doc file explains what

I know about the Century I and how it works in FSX.    Enjoy (Century_I_AP.zip)  Version 6.3.  Ron P.

 

Please make a Checklist update to the airplanes you add this project to, turn OFF the Century I before take-off and just before destination arrival.
