Aspen Avionics Announces STC, Developed By Keystone
Aspen Avionics said Tuesday that an STC for installation of the
Aspen EFD1000H into the Bell 206 and Bell 407 model helicopters has
been approved by the FAA. This STC was developed in partnership
with Keystone Helicopters.
The EFD1000H is the latest addition to the Evolution Flight
Display System. Designed and manufactured to meet the rigors of
helicopter operations, Aspen’s EFD1000H enables rotorcraft
operators to replace their legacy mechanical flight instruments
with state-of-the-art electronic displays with little to no
modification of the existing panel.
“This certification project has been many months in the
making and we are looking forward to offering the Evolution glass
panel system to Bell owners and operators,” says Anson Gray,
Aspen’s Helicopter Sales Manager. “The EFD1000H’s
lightweight, compact form and specially designed
vibration-isolating kit will be a huge plus for helicopter
operators looking for a glass cockpit upgrade,” he adds.
“Aspen Avionics brings to rotary operators the same great
benefits of upgradability, compatibility, and customization that
has made the Evolution System so popular with fixed-wing
owners,” said John Uczekaj, President and CEO Aspen Avionics.
He adds, “Of particular benefit to those operators working in
high pressure environments such as law enforcement and medical
transportation, the Aspen Evolution System provides phenomenal
situational awareness that enhances safety and reduces pilot
Aspen Avionics will be demonstrating the new EFD1000H at Heli
Expo February 21 through 23 in Houston, TX. The EFD1000H PFD is the
lowest priced certified EFIS in the helicopter market. Aspen units
are available only through Aspen Avionics Authorized Dealers.
