Aspen Avionics has obtained EASA approval for its low-cost Evolution E5 EFI glass cockpit.
The 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). Prices start at $4,995.
“The Evolution E5 offers an easy and economic path for aircraft owners to remove outdated and high-maintenance vacuum systems and air-driven gyros,” said Cory Relling of Aspen.
“Owners will have the opportunity to streamline their panel with Aspen’s patented retrofit display technology which substantially lowers installation costs.”
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.
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.
