Genesys Aerosystems has received an FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the retrofit installation of its HeliSAS stability augmentation system and two-axis autopilot on Robinson R66 turbine helicopters. 

Weighing less than 15 lb, Genesys' HeliSAS reduces single-pilot workload while providing precise “hands-off” control of the aircraft during all modes of flight, regardless of wind conditions or shifts in the aircraft's weight.
The company expects to receive EASA certification soon and plans to add at least three more helicopter models to its FAA STC list this year.
