Any shop recommendations in SoCal? Looking to replace TC and add GPSS

Post by nathanda40 »

Looking to add GPSS and replace a turn coordinator in our 2002 DA40 with a 6 pack. Does anybody know of a shop in socal that does this? Most I have spoken with do not seem very interested in figuring out the third party roll steering converter.

The TC is a separate deal but installing an Aspen or dual G5s (and the appropriate extras) will get you GPSS. Somebody here once did install the simple DAC GDC31 GPSS converter several years back. Given the newer options many shops may not be familiar with it, but it doesn't look involved other than where to install the box in the cramped space behind the panel. For all legacy autopilots what it does is provide an alternative input for using the transponder in HDG mode.
