White Plains, New York (Tuesday November 1, 2016) — Safe Flight Instrument Corporation announced today that AutoPower® , Automatic Throttle System (ATS), will be standard on the Embraer Legacy 650E. The system was selected based on Safe Flight’s proven experience in developing and delivering nearly 10,000 automatic throttle systems.
“We are delighted by Embraer’s decision to make the AutoPower® System standard on the Legacy 650E. Our AutoPower® System will further enhance the performance and comfort of this already very capable aircraft”, stated Safe Flight’s Executive Vice President Matthew Greene.
The AutoPower® System for the Legacy 650E is a full regime automatic throttle system and will provide automatic thrust schedule setting as well as IAS / Mach speed control from takeoff through landing phases of flight. The system will be fully integrated with the aircraft’s avionics suite, decreasing pilot workload allowing greater situational awareness.
The full authority ATS will be internationally certified by Embraer, installed at the factory and also available for the retrofit market. The system will build upon the demonstrated performance of several recent AutoPower® System certifications. Initial production deliveries and entry into service is expected by the end of 2017.
