MEDIA ALERT: Aspen Avionics Evolution E5 Electronic Flight Instrument (EFI) Receives EASA Approval
Aircraft owners in the region now have the option to install a budget-friendly glass display approved for both IFR and VFR flight starting at under $5,000
Albuquerque, NM; November 18, 2019: Today, Aspen Avionics announces it has obtained European Union Safety Agency (EASA) approval for the Evolution E5 EFI. The budget-friendly E5 EFI will be sold through Aspen Avionics authorized dealers and directly to aircraft owners through aviation retailers. IFR and VFR capable, this approval opens the door to many aircraft owners and flight schools in the region that want to update their existing steam gauges to glass at an affordable price.
The STC’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) starting at $4,995 USD.
“The Evolution E5 offers an easy and economic path for aircraft owners to remove outdated and high-maintenance vacuum systems and air-driven gyros,” said Cory Relling, international regional sales manager. “Additionally, owners will have the opportunity to streamline their panel with Aspen’s patented retrofit display technology which substantially lowers installation costs,” continued Relling.
Like all Aspen displays, the Evolution E5 EFI is configurable, upgradeable, and affordable. As the pilot’s need grow, the E5 can also be converted to the Evolution Pro MAX line of displays which enables owners to add software options like Synthetic Vision and Angle of Attack. Unlike other standalone systems, Aspen’s versatile design and open architecture provide owners a cost-effective path to upgrade their panel without unit replacement or investing in a new installation.
The Evolution E5 EFI is approved for IFR flight when installed with a panel mounted IFR GPS. When installed without a panel mount GPS, the E5 EFI is approved for VFR flight only.
