The Pro Pilot provides excellent horizontal navigation capabilities and the vertical navigation provides altitude control, climb/descent functions with airspeed limiting, and altitude pre-select. Climb/descent on airspeed is also included.
Gold Standard Autopilot Servos
The Pro Pilot uses Trio's proven "intelligent" Gold Standard servos to assure safe and reliable control actuation.
Ease of Operation
While the Pro Pilot incorporates many features, it is very simple to operate. Just press the H NAV button and it will track your flight plan. Press the V NAV button and it will hold your current altitude.
The Pro Pilot is available in two models - instrument mount and rack mount. Both models feature backlit nomenclature and bright LED indicators.
Vertical, Horizontal and Safety Features
Auto Level Mode
Automatic 180 Turn
Pilot Command Steering
Track Offset Capability
GPSS (GPS Steering):
If your Grumman AA5 GPS receiver or EFIS system provides GPSS commands, usually via an ARINC 429 data output the Trio autopilot can follow your entire flight plan including turns to new headings. In this case, the Pro Pilot will no longer rely upon its own navigation functions but will follow the roll commands coming from the GPS or EFIS for guidance.
Add GPSV (GPS Vertical Steering)IFR Approach Capability to your Grumman Tiger Cheetah or Traveler.
With WAAS approaches in widespread use, it is now possible to do precision approaches in your AA5 using approved GPS systems. The GPSV option allows the Pro Pilot to follow the pitch steering commands that are provided by your IFR approved panel-mounted WAAS GPS receiver or EFIS system for descents into an airport.
The GPSV feature also allows the autopilot to follow the vertical bug on a compatible EFIS system that may be installed on your Grumman AA5 series.

AOPA Interview with Paul Odem of the Treo Certified Autopilot.
Cessna Autopilot STC Test Flight
with New Trio Pilot Pro
This was an initial flight test. Note that the 430 was in track mode, not OBS mode so the conversation and heading changes on the indicator had no effect on the autopilot heading in that configuration. Setting the inbound course for reference is a good practice. JJ
