Genesys Aerosystems has applied for an FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the installation of its Helicopter Stability Augmentation System (HeliSAS) and two-axis autopilot aboard Airbus EC120 Colibri light-turbine helicopters.  

Genesys' director of sales and marketing, Jamie Luster, explained that the system has been created to reduce pilot workload, especially in light- to mid-size piston and turbine helicopters. The company said it has shipped its 600th HeliSAS and autopilot system to Robinson Helicopter for installation on a new R66 and currently has about 100 others more on order.
HeliSAS is currently approved for installation on the Airbus (Eurocopter) EC130 and A350 series, the Bell 206B, 206L and 407 models, and the Robinson R44 and R66.
