The Evolution 2500 combines the Pro PFD, the 1000 MFD and a 500 MFD to provide a total system with the flexibility and convenience of dual MFS. The Evolution 2500 delivers safety and confidence of full PFD instrument redundancy. The Evolution 2500 Flight Display provides a top-of-the-line glass panel that's easy-to-use.
The Evolution 2500 combines the powerful, award-winning EFD1000 Pro PFD (Primary Flight Display), the EFD1000 MFD (Multi-function Flight Display), and the EFD500 MFD to deliver Aspen’s total glass cockpit solution. The Pro PFD and 1000 MFD provide the safety and confidence of PFD redundancy. The 500 MFD expands display area to put more flight data where you want it - the way you want it. Aspen makes the total glass cockpit experience for GA aircraft both easy-to-use and affordable with patent-pending retrofit technology and superior compatibility for substantially lower installation costs and total cost of ownership.
The Pro PFD provides professional-grade EFIS primary flight instruments, a full-featured electronic HSI, and moving maps. The 1000 MFD doubles your panel’s display area and delivers full redundancy of critical systems and sensors. The 500 MFD rounds out the package to deliver the largest display area and most flexible glass panel on the market. All that display area also allows you to view your approach chart and moving map at the same time - cross check your position with ease!
The 1000 MFD incorporates the exact same hardware and software as the PFD, so these units give you two of everything, not just two displays: dual independent AHRS, Air Data Computers, compass systems, HSIs, and more.
With Aspen’s PFD redundancy, if your PFD fails you simply press the 1000 MFD’s REV button and it becomes the PFD - converting into an identical backup right in your primary instrument scan. This identical PFD backup means less stress and potential confusion in a pressure situation. No other GA glass cockpit system gives you this level of redundancy and confidence at any price!
Evolution Flight Displays are fully upgradable, so you can add comprehensive hazard awareness capabilities and other new features via software upgrades, without removing displays from your panel.

The Evolution flight displays are innovative, modular system components that slide into existing 3-inch instrument holes in any instrument panel. A universal bracket provides easy surface mounting. The system can optionally be flush mounted. This unique design dramatically reduces installation time and cost.
The modular Evolution platform allows for easy expansion. The integrated displays mount side-by-side in one, two, and three display configurations for supreme flexibility and upgradability.
