S-TEC Corporation is a United States corporation that was founded in 1978 and is headquartered in Mineral Wells, Texas. It manufactures flight control systems for the General Aviation aftermarket and for a number of original equipment manufacturers. S-TEC is the leader in the general aviation autopilot market for small- and mid-sized planes.

Customers[edit]

Genesys Aerosystems has a number of forward-fit autopilot customers including Pilatus, Indonesian Aerospace,[1] Epic Aircraft, and Aviat Aircraft.[2] Their latest autopilot, the S-TEC 3100, has earned Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) on over 100 aircraft models.[3]

History[edit]

Meggitt acquired S-TEC and S-TEC Unmanned Technologies (SUTI) for $24 million in 2000.[4][5] (DRS Technologies purchased the UAV business from Meggitt in 2002[6] but later closed the Mineral Wells facility.)

S-TEC was purchased for $38 million by Cobham plc in 2008.[7][8]

In April 2014, Cobham sold Chelton Flight Systems and S-TEC Corporation to Genesys Aerosystems.[9][10]
