Aspen Avionics’ Angle of Attack Indicator Awarded FLYING Magazine’s Editors’ Choice for 2015
Second time Aspen has been honored with award since the company launch in 2004
Albuquerque, NM, December 17, 2015: FLYING Magazine announced in its January 2016 issue that Aspen’s Evolution Angle of Attack (AOA) Indicator has been honored by being named an Editors’ Choice recipient for 2015. The designation of “Editors’ Choice” is given each year to companies which “have had a positive impact on general aviation during the previous year” and added, “It’s the stamp of approval pilots look for when shopping for avionics…”
In the announcement, FLYING editors wrote: “OK, we admit we were skeptical of this one when Aspen announced it earlier this year. Then we flew with the company’s software-only angle of attack indicator and became believers.”
Announced at the Aircraft Electronics Association (AEA) national convention in April 2015, just four months elapsed from its introduction to certification. Unlike other AOAs, Aspen’s patent-pending solution seamlessly integrates AOA technology into its Evolution primary flight and multi-function displays through a software upgrade.
Aspen Avionics continues to make glass panel technology affordable by pricing the AOA indicator at just $1,995. The Evolution AOA is available through all Aspen authorized dealers.
“For a young company such as Aspen, receiving FLYING Editors’ Choice is a great honor. From the company launch until now, our mission has always been to make flying safer with affordable glass panel technology for the general aviation community,” said John Uczekaj, Aspen president and CEO.
The Editors’ Choice Award for 2015 is actually the second time Aspen Avionics has been named as an Editors’ Choice recipient by FLYING Magazine. The Aspen Evolution EFD1000 Primary Flight Display (PFD) was named in 2008 and was cited for “bringing glass to the masses.” The magazine stated, “Aspen’s Evolution PFD is an affordable alternative to much higher-priced retrofit PFDs while offering the same safety and reliability improvements of more expensive solutions.”
