Aspen Provides High-Tech Support For ANN Oshkosh 2010 Coverage

Let Aspen Avionics Guide You Through ANN's 2010 Special Coverage!

Aspen Avionics, based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, was founded by aviation enthusiasts in 2004. The company specializes in bringing the most advanced technology and capability from the commercial and business aviation markets into general aviation cockpits. Its products increase situational awareness and reduce pilot workload, making it even easier and safer to fly in both VFR and IFR conditions. The company’s philosophy is that getting the latest avionics technology shouldn’t always mean spending a lot of money—on equipment or on installation.

Aspen’s flagship product line is the Evolution Flight Display System, the most innovative—and affordable—glass cockpit system ever for certified general aviation (GA) aircraft. The Evolution system enables aircraft owners to upgrade their primary flight instrument “six pack” to glass cockpit technology all at once, or in stages. Easy and inexpensive software upgrades add new features and capabilities, while future-proofing the system and protecting owners’ investments.

The Evolution Flight Display product line was announced at EAA AirVenture in 2007. Technical Standard Order (TSO) authorization was granted for the Evolution Pilot and Pro PFDs in March 2008. In January 2009 the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) granted E-TSO authorization of the Evolution Flight Display.

In September 2009, the 500 MFD, the 1000 MFD and the EWR50 Weather Receiver received TSO and AML-STC authorization from the FAA, completing the certification process for the Evolution Flight Display System. Most recently in July 2010, Aspen also received certification for the Class III PFD – the EFD1000C3 Pro PFD for Class III category aircraft. Aspen is also in the process of gaining STCs for the rotorcraft market.


Led by industry veteran John Uczekaj, Aspen Avionics’ team of top talent—with deep roots in aviation product development and certification—will continue to grow the company’s business through pioneering solutions for the general aviation market. 

Did You Know? (Cool Facts About Aspen Avionics)
  • The Evolution Flight Display System is certified for installation in more than 900 Class I, II, III fixed-wing aircraft and rotorcraft makes and models.

  • Aspen now offers Evolution Packages. Purchasing flight display bundles are more affordable than purchasing units separately.
  • Unique to the Evolution system is the ability to simultaneously view the approach chart and GPS flight plan data without needing to switch between different MFD (Multi-function Flight Display) pages, further improving pilot situational awareness and reducing cockpit workload.
  • Aspen continues to add new features and improved function to the Evolution displays with Evolution Software version 2.2.
  • The Pro PFD (Primary Flight Display) features: airspeed and altitude tapes, altitude alerter with separate approach minimums alerting, built-in GPS steering (with compatible GPS navigators), full electronic HSI, moving map and more!
  • The PFD air data bar shows real-time true airspeed, wind direction and wind speed, outside air temperature and ground speed.
  • The Evolution MFD features an aviation-style base map with crisp, clear depiction of the terrain along your flight path.

  • Aspen Avionics is partnering with the EAA to provide a North 40 Welcome Center for existing customers and future customers alike. This is the third year that Aspen has sponsored the North 40 aircraft camping area.
  • The 1000 MFD incorporates the exact same hardware and software as the Pro PFD, when paired you’ve got two of everything: dual independent AHRS, Air Data Computers, compass systems, HSIs, and more. With Aspen’s exclusive DuoSafe PFD redundancy, if your PFD fails you simply press the 1000 MFD’s REV button and it becomes the PFD — converting into an identical backup right in your primary instrument scan. No other GA glass cockpit system gives you this level of redundancy and confidence at any price!
  • The highly flexible optional Evolution Hazard Awareness (EHA) package provides traffic and weather displays on both the PFD and MFD.
  • Aspen’s unique auto-zoom function automatically scales the map to keep your next active waypoint in view on either the PFD or MFD.

  • Aspen’s track-line feature makes it a snap to navigate easily around airspace, terrain and weather at a moment’s notice.
  • All Aspen displays have built-in battery backup to provide a minimum 30 minutes of use in the unfortunate event of losing ship power.
  • You can visit with Aspen Avionics at Booth 2126 (Hangar B) and at the North 40 Welcome Center during EAA AirVenture.
