ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- Aspen Avionics, maker of the Evolution Flight Display System, announces that the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has issued European Technical Standard Order (ETSO) authorizations for the EFD1000 Primary Flight Displays. This approval paves the way both for installation of the EFD1000 PFDs in European aircraft (subject to aircraft-specific installation approvals), and for expansion of Aspen’s European dealer network.
These ETSOs enable EASA-certified Design Organisations to pursue aircraft-specific approvals for installing the Evolution system in aircraft registered in Europe. Aspen continues to work with EASA towards broader Approved Model List Supplemental Type Certifications (AML-STC) for European aircraft. Aspen will also work with and support European Design Organisations pursuing individual model STCs, aiming to achieve the broadest possible list of approvals for the Evolution Flight Display system.
"European aircraft owners have been anxiously waiting for approval to install the Evolution system in their airplanes. EASA’s timely issuance of this ETSO is a big step closer to that goal," says Doug Cayne, VP of Marketing at Aspen Avionics. "The European market is critically important to Aspen and this ETSO and expected further EASA approvals will enable Aspen to accelerate expansion of its European dealer network and OEM partners."
