Aspen Avionics Books Over $1.5 Million in New Orders for Evolution Flight Display
Sales confirm GA market’s excitement over new glass cockpit products
Oshkosh, July 27, 2007: Aspen Avionics announced today from the EAA AirVenture Show in Oshkosh that it has received over $1.5 million in new orders for its innovative Evolution Flight Display product line during the first week it was available for sale.
The Evolution Flight Display system, launched on Monday at the AirVenture show, is an affordable glass cockpit system for certified general aviation (GA) aircraft. The Evolution system is modular, expandable and upgradable; it’s easy to afford, easy to install and easy to own. It has been enthusiastically received by pilots and avionics dealers alike.
“These orders from dealers confirm what we already knew about the Evolution Flight Display,” said Aspen’s President and CEO John Uczekaj, “that the underserved GA market has been seeking a glass cockpit solution that is designed and priced to meet the needs of GA fleet.”
Aspen also announced Monday that it recently completed raising $8.5 million in Series B venture funding, proceeds of which will be used, among other things, to expand the company’s Sales and Customer Service operations as it strengthens its ability to market and support the new Evolution Flight Display product line.
The first two models in the Evolution system—the EFD1000 Pilot Primary Flight Display and EFD1000 Pro Primary Flight Display—will be certified in Fall 2007 and delivered through Authorized Avionics Dealers. More information about the Evolution Flight Display system is available at www.aspenavionics.com/evolution.
