Aspen Adds Even More ADS-B Features to Evolution Flight Displays
Latest software upgrade includes textual METARS information capability on multi-function display
EAA AirVenture, Oshkosh, WI, July 26, 2016: Aspen Avionics (Hangar B, booth 2145) announced today that certification is imminent for its latest software upgrade to include several additional ADS-B display features on its Evolution 500/1000 multi- function display (MFD).
The latest software upgrade includes textual METARS information to be displayed on the MFD which provides an intuitive display of subscription-free weather data in an easy-to-read format.
The expanded ADS-B display capability includes the following information on its Evolution MFD:
• Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRS)
• Airman’s meteorological information (AIRMETS)
• Significant meteorological information (SIGMETS)
• Convective SIGMETS
• Winds Aloft
• Temps Aloft
• Terminal aerodrome forecast (TAF)
All Aspen, and Aspen-compatible ADS-B products are capable of displaying the additional flight information on the MFD. To date, Aspen has partnered with L-3 Avionics Products, FreeFlight Systems and Garmin to ensure customers with Aspen cockpits have a choice in selecting how to become compliant without having to upgrade their entire panel and receive the most comprehensive data available.
During the month of July, Aspen is offering $1000 off list pricing of its Pro Primary Flight Display with the purchase of any certified Aspen, or Aspen-compatible ADS-B solution regardless of manufacturer.
