Albuquerque, NM, March 19, 2013: Aspen Avionics announced today that Piper Aircraft Inc. has selected the Evolution Backup Display system for its popular Piper Seneca V-series aircraft. The Evolution Backup Display is a fully digital, independent flight display system designed to replace mechanical backup instruments used in Part 23 glass panel installations.
The Evolution Backup Display functionality on the Piper Seneca includes: attitude, altitude and airspeed tapes, rate of turn, slip/skid, VSI, and heading.
“Seneca pilots will appreciate the convenience and increased reliability of Aspen’s Evolution glass backup display interface, which provides significantly better situational awareness than mechanical backup instrumentation,” says Brad Hayden, Vice President of Marketing. “The Seneca is an ideal platform for the Evolution Backup Display to complete the total glass panel solution for this aircraft.”
Aspen’s backup display is based on the company’s Evolution Flight Display platform, offering the same ease-of-use and broad functionality, interoperability and reliability that has made Aspen’s flagship product line such a popular choice among aircraft owners.
