Albuquerque, NM, April 8, 2008: Aspen Avionics today announced that it has signed an OEM contract with Liberty Aerospace to provide its Evolution Pro Primary Flight Display (PFD) as standard equipment in the Advanced IFR version of the Liberty XL-2 aircraft. The EFD1000 PFD will also be offered as an upgrade option to other versions of the XL-2.
“We’re delighted that Liberty Aerospace chose the Evolution PFD for their Advanced IFR XL-2 trainer and touring aircraft,” said John Uczekaj, CEO and President of Aspen Avionics. “The Evolution Flight Display in the XL-2 will help train the next generation of pilots on advanced glass cockpit techniques, and attract more people to become pilots,” he continued.
