Albuquerque, NM, February 23, 2011: Aspen Avionics, manufacturer of the innovative Evolution Flight Display System, will be expanding its exhibit at Heli-Expo this year to include several helicopters with EFD1000H and EFD500H installations.
“Aspen has made significant progress this year in growing its helicopter program,” says Anson Gray, Aspen’s Helicopter Program Manager, “and Heli-Expo is the premier event to showcase that progress. Glass panel technology is relatively new to the helicopter market and we are excited to demonstrate how the Aspen system can improve operations.”
Aspen will have the Evolution System on display at its primary exhibit (booth 2255) as well as a static display featuring EFD1000H and EFD500H customer installations on a variety of platforms. The static display, located at booth number 32, will include a Schweizer 300C, a Robinson R44, and an Enstrom 480B.
“We understand that there are unique requirements for the helicopter market. Our focus is to offer solutions that will not only stand up to the high-vibration environment and aggressive flight regimes, but will also significantly improve safety and increase situational awareness for pilots and operators,” says John Uczekaj, Aspen President and CEO. He continues, “Aspen is committed to continually improving and refining the Evolution system to meet these requirements.”

About the Evolution Flight Display System
The Aspen Evolution Flight Display System is an affordable, expandable and upgradeable PFD, MFD and hazard sensor cockpit solution for general aviation aircraft. Highly compatible with existing aircraft avionics, the flexible Evolution Flight Display System lets aircraft owners install all Evolution Flight Displays and options at once, or separately, as their needs and budgets permit.
They are working to develop an interface between the Aspen Evolution displays and the Avidyne DFC90 Digital Autopilot.
All new Aspen EFD1000 PFD purchasers will have the opportunity to use Aspen’s Evolution Synthetic Vision (ESV) for free during their first 10-inflight PFD hours.
