Pitching UP after pressing "straight-and-level" on DFC-90


Recommended Posts


I have just purchased the SR22 Entegra, and I see something unusual with the DFC autopilot. Pressing the Straight-and-Level button levels the wings, but brings the pitch up to about 5 degrees, so the plane is climbing. Is there a calibration of some sort that I need to carry out on the DFC?

Hi Coop,

Checking again today I now see +2.5deg up, which I is tolerable. Sorry, I just started using the SR22 (and loving it!), so I must have messed something up yesterday, because I swear I saw more than 5deg up and climb rates >500 fpm after pressing S&L. Maybe I was at full throttle, which would at least explain the high climb rate... Anyway, it seems Ok now.

Thank you very much for a quick response.
