Due to simplified access to IFR licenses, more and more pilots wish to make their aircraft capable of IFR.
In this the autopilot plays a decisive role. When aircraft are already equipped with IFR, they often sport legacy Bendix King or Nav-o-matic autopilots.

Porta Air Service offers mechanics and avionics from a single source and so is your ideal partner for autopilot upgrades. A retrofit is now extremely worthwhile due to the many innovations available, in particular those from Garmin.
They help reduce the strain in the cockpit enormously and serve as electronic co-pilot in tricky situations.
