  • FAQ
The KAP 140 rate based, digital autopilot system brings digital technology and reliability into the light aircraft cockpit.  Designed to interface with our mid-range products, the KAP 140 gives you the advantage of having your avionics work together as an integrated system rather than as a group of components built by several manufacturers.

Your new KAP 140 roll axis features include wing leveler, heading select, and VOR/LOC intercept and tracking.  It can also be coupled to GPS and RNAV.  The turn coordinator provides roll rate information, while pitch axis information comes from a pressure sensor and accelerometer.  Pitch axis features include vertical speed, glideslope and altitude hold along with the optional altitude preselect.  The KAP 140 Autopilot System operates independent of the aircraft’s artificial horizon, thus retaining roll stabilization and all vertical modes in the event of vacuum system failure.  Internal monitors keep constant track of the KAP 140’s status and will automatically shutdown the autopilot or trim system in the event of a malfunction.  In addition to reliability, the KAP 140 is designed to be easily maintained in the field. Qualified BendixKing Service Centers are located around the world to provide assistance whenever necessary.
