The Evolution 1500H combines the powerful Pro 1000H PFD with the versatile 500H MFD (Multi-function Flight Display) to deliver a reliable, full-featured, and exceptionally easy-to-use glass panel for helicopter installations.
The Evolution™ 1500H combines the powerful 1000H Pro PFD (Primary Flight Display) with the versatile 500H MFD (Multi-function Flight Display) to deliver a rugged, full-featured, exceptionally easy-to- use glass panel at the lowest price on the market.
And your fly-away cost is made even lower because Aspen’s patent-pending retrofit technology delivers substantially lower installation cost. There’s no need for costly new panel modifications; Evolution Flight Displays (EFDs) uniquely retrofit directly into your aircraft’s six-pack panel holes. The self-contained EFDs also don’t require the installation of heavy remote mount boxes. And since Evolution displays work with the avionics already in your panel - no matter what make - you don’t have to upgrade your GPS or radios.
The 1000H Pro PFD provides professional-grade EFIS primary flight instruments, with a full-featured electronic HSI with moving map. The 500H MFD adds photo-quality moving maps, terrain awareness, geo-referenced charts and airport diagrams, and (with optional or existing sensors) traffic displays, WX500 Stormscope® display, and the full suite of XM WX® aviation weather products.
The modular Evolution EFDs are fully upgradable, so you can add comprehensive hazard awareness capabilities, new features, and even a second MFD to complete a three-display glass cockpit system. Evolution delivers greater flexibility since Aspen flight displays work with your existing GPS, radios, and traffic sensors - so you don’t have to upgrade them just for the sake of compatibility.

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.
