EXTON, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Innovative Solutions & Support (IS&S) (NASDAQ: ISSC) is pleased to announce it is taking orders for the ThrustSense® Autothrottle system with LifeGuard™ Protection for King Airs with immediate deliveries and CJ series aircraft outfitted with Pro Line 21, Pro Line Fusion, and Garmin avionics for delivery in early 2022.
The ThrustSense Autothrottle now features a configuration adaptor that will allow an operator the option to purchase the system for their current flight deck. If they choose to install a new flight deck the ThrustSense system will transfer seamlessly.
The IS&S ThrustSense® Autothrottle is a full regime system that allows the pilot to automatically control the power setting of the engines and speed targets from takeoff to landing phases of flight, including go-around. The autothrottle system is engaged for takeoff and advances the Throttle Levers to the takeoff detent on jets. After the five-minute takeoff power setting the throttles are automatically repositioned to the climb MCT detent.
IS&S’s patented LifeGuard™ provides critical VMCa protection, eliminating ‘low-and-slow’ challenges associated with twin Jet operations. The ThrustSense Autothrottle enables automatic control of engine power settings guarding the power levels within safe limits. ThrustSense will position the Throttle Levers with precision and without “hunting” for a target air speed.
The system’s influence on safety is not limited to just VMCa protection, however, as ThrustSense LifeGuard™ manages engine power throughout all phases of flight and eliminating over/under speed situations, further reducing pilot workload.
IS&S’s Integrated Standby Unit enables full autothrottle control interface as well as full standby suite capability.
IS&S factory trained installers will ensure a three-day downtime for the aircraft.
The IS&S ThrustSense Autothrottle is standard equipment on the King Air® 260 and 360 and is available for retrofit on the King Air 200 and 300 as well as the Pilatus PC-12 Legacy and NG. IS&S was awarded Flying Magazines 2021 Editors’ Choice Award for the ThrustSense Autothrottle.
