About Genesys Aerosystems

Genesys Aerosystems, a Moog Inc. company, was founded in 2014, but has been in business for over 40 years.  Its heritage includes Chelton Flight Systems, Inc. and S-TEC Corporation, which are highly recognized names that have been in the industry for decades.

Moog Inc. purchased Genesys Aerosystems on December 18, 2020 and continues doing business as Genesys Aerosystems as a part of Moog’s Aircraft Controls segment.

Genesys Aerosystems offers the S-TEC line of autopilots for airplanes and helicopters. From low-cost analog wing levelers to sophisticated, digital, three-axis systems with Flight Director and envelope protection; Genesys has FAA certification for nearly 1,000 aircraft types and has delivered over 40,000 autopilot systems. The company’s HeliSAS® brings digital, full-authority autopilot technology to the market in a package weighing an unprecedented 15 lbs. Available as a Stability Augmentation System (SAS) only or with all autopilot modes, HeliSAS dramatically enhances safety for light single-engine and twin-engine helicopters. HeliSAS is approved for Robinson R44, R66, Bell 206B/L, 407, Airbus AS350, EC120, EC130B4 and EC130T2.

Genesys Aerosystems also offers highly customizable avionics suites for new factory fit and aftermarket retrofit aircraft utilizing the previously branded Chelton Flight Systems.  Two of the Genesys Aerosystems owners developed the world’s first FAA-certified 3D synthetic vision EFIS and GPS/WAAS navigator enabling Genesys’ growth to become a leader in integrated cockpit avionics systems for special-mission aircraft. Key technologies include synthetic vision with three dimensional highway-in-the-sky navigation, integrated flight management and hazard alerting, and ultra-compact, highly ruggedized sensors that provide ultimate customer benefits of increased safety, improved dispatch rates, mission flexibility, and seamless future growth. Approved for all classes of aircraft, the company’s uniquely customizable open-architecture systems dramatically reduce integration costs and schedules for both OEM and retrofit applications.
