Please, please, please, I'll be good all year if Santa Claus will bring me a DFC90 to replace the Century Altimatic IIIc in my Seneca II. 

Us PA34 owners with FIKI birds, can't do STEC, not on the STC. I'd love to have a digital flight control system and would spring for the Aspen unit just to enable it.

We agree that the PA34 would be a great platform for the DFC90 and we have a special place for it in our minds because a number of them are equipped with Avidyne PFDs and MFDs.

While we don't have a specific plan to knock it out, we are seriously considering it.  Santa does have some sway here.

Don't forget the PA-24s with Century IIIs too. :)   I'd be the first in line if you hear from Santa .

A 2015 update question: Any news on STC:s etcetera from Santa coming up for x-mas this year? 

Adding to the signatories of the wish list, here is yet another PA-34-200T-owner with a Century IIIc, with an Aspen PFD in the pipe line and sincere plans to improve Autopilot capacity whenever possible. 

/from a well-maintained, MOH:d, patiently aging bird that has many hours left in the air

No active autopilot related STCs in process at this time (which would be required to make a fun x-mas gift).

Hello Avidyne!
Can we get an STC for the Seneca III DFC90 for Father's Day?
I think you will find a lot of Seneca owners would pony up for a nice Autopilot!!!!!!
thanks to you all for any consideration....
Pat Wilson (N54UT)

Happy Father's day

Hi Pat,

I wish we could take that check but I'm afraid there is no active program in the works for an autopilot that would be good news to you.

Is it okay if we keep begging? I see you are working on the PA32, PA34 is the same airplane with another engine!
I can dream!
Thank you, this forum is great and you guys are very good about help us.

A number of us with different airplane types would still like to see the DFC90 project reborn!!

Maybe Avidyne ought to do a kickstarter?

pls add my Seneca V to the list, I already have Aspen EFD and IFD 540+440.

Any hope for the next 12 months?

Planning to buy Seneca V shortly and approval for DFC90 would be great for christmas.

It already has the Avidyne Entegra and S-Tec55x

I too have a Turbo Seneca II and would love to upgrade to the DFC90 to compliment my 2 x IFD540s, MLB100, AXP340 and TAS605A!
