Which location of Duncan Aviation is interested in taking this on? Assuming the price is reasonable I would be happy to have them use my M7 as well for the STC.

I’m on board to get one as well. I’m not too interested in the IFR portion, but to reduce workload and to save ones bacon if I bumbled into marginal conditions.

Hi Anyone looked at a Trio
They have an STC company to handle certifications. I have contacted them without success but if more people do maybe they may react
Experimental at present I have used one in a friend aircraft, very easy to use. Claim they have over 3000 in the field, Friend installed his 10 years ago
I would like one for long trips. Long distances in outback Aussie

I have a Stec-20 in my 2000 MXT-7 maule. Its currently not flying so i inquired about moving the STEC-20 to the MX-7 we have. STEC said they would need $8000 minimum to check it out and re-certify it for the MX-7. AND, they will only work directly with a dealer so that means us A&P can't touch it and we will need to pay the dealer a little cash as well. So $10,000 for an autopilot that we own. Nothing like a monopoly to ensure profitability.......

The avionic arena needs competition. TruTrac was rocking along till Bendix King swallowed them up. Just like what Garmin did to Apollo. Trio still works with A&P but they may be the only one now.
