Aspen Avionics Unveils Evolution E5 Dual Electronic Flight Instrument
All-in-one, STC’d, non-TSO electronic flight instrument consolidates traditional attitude indicator, plus directional gyro (DG)/course deviation indicator (CDI) into a single vibrant display for under $5,000 (USD)
Furthermore, owners can affordably upgrade to real glass with the Evolution E5 and the TruTrak Vizion autopilot for less than $10,000 (USD)
Las Vegas, NV, Aircraft Electronics Association, March 26, 2018: Today, Aspen Avionics introduced the Evolution E5 Dual Electronic Flight Instrument (EFI). The STD’d, non-TSO Evolution E5 consolidates attitude indicator plus DG/CDI into a single display with a rechargeable backup battery. It also includes Global Positioning System Steering (GPSS), air data computer, and attitude heading reference system (ADAHRS) for only $4,995.
With redesigned electronics and new glass, the Evolution E5 has a bolder and brighter display and offers higher reliability, more capability and increased processing speed all while retaining Aspen’s unique form factor design that keeps installation costs down. Designed as a drop-in non-TSO replacement for traditional mechanical vacuum instruments, the Evolution E5 also interfaces with most legacy autopilots and will also interface to the new TruTrak Vizion autopilot.
“Like all Aspen displays, the Evolution E5 is configurable, upgradeable, and affordable. The E5 can also be upgraded to a full TSO Evolution Pro 1000 flight display through an affordable upgrade path,” said John Uczekaj, Aspen president and CEO. “Unlike other standalone systems, our versatile design and open architecture allow features to be easily configured to specific flight needs with the opportunity to add additional options and capability without unit replacement. Simply, it’s a smart investment for now and for the future.”
