EZ Pilot is a modern solid-state navigation system designed to accurately track a GPS flight plan or "Go To" Course that is entered into a handheld or panel mount GPS Receiver. It also acts as a basic wing leveler when no GPS is available.
The pilot simply enters a flight plan into the GPS and presses the Servo button. The EZ Pilot then precisely tracks the flight plan.
If the pilot wishes to deviate from the programmed flight path, the Mode button is pressed to enter the Course mode and track any bearing selected with the "L-R" switch. The new bearing will display on the readout and the aircraft will track that bearing.
An Intercept mode (with adjustable intercept angle) is available to steer the plane back to the original flight path.
A remote Servo Disconnect switch provides instant release of flight controls. Holding the switch down for three seconds or more enables Pilot Command Steering. This allows the pilot to manually fly the aircraft to any new heading and, upon releasing the switch, the autopilot will track that course.A convenient Display switch allows the pilot to read the Waypoint Designator, Ground Speed, Distance to Waypoint, Time to Waypoint, Crosstrack error, Track Offset Position and a graphic Turn Coordinator.
