Albuquerque, NM, May 19, 2009: Aspen Avionics, Inc., maker of the award-winning Evolution Flight Display system, announced today that the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has issued the first European Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for Aspen products. This new STC authorizes installation of the EFD1000 Primary Flight Display (PFD) into Cessna 206 series aircraft.
The STC was developed by Avionics Integration & Engineering Corporation, an EASAcertified Design Organisation based in Switzerland. Rights to use this STC are available to qualified EASA Part 145 organizations.
“The European market continues to be very important to Aspen,” said Doug Cayne, Aspen Avionics VP of Marketing. “We are actively working with our European dealers and EASA-certified Design Organisations to assure prompt availability of a broad range of STCs for our customers in EASA-member countries,” he continued.
EASA STCs for several other aircraft makes/models are currently under development. Updates to the STCs will be available on the Aspen Avionics website at: http://www.aspenavionics.com/index.php/products/evolution/approvals/.
