Aspen Class III

The Evolution 1000C3 Pro Primary Flight Displays (PFD) delivers and exceptionally easy-to-use, advanced glass panel at the lowest price on the market.

Not only are Aspen PFDs the most affordable GA glass on the market, your fly-away cost is made even lower because Aspen’s patent-pending retrofit technology delivers substantially lower installation costs. There’s no need for expensive new panel modifications; Evolution Flight Displays (EFDs) can 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 the expense of updating to compabile instruments.

The Pro PFD provides professional-grade EFIS primary flight instruments including a full-featured electronic HSI with moving map.

Evolution PFDs are fully software upgradable, so you can add comprehensive hazard awareness capabilities and other new features — all without removing the display from your panel. Evolution also delivers greater flexibility since Aspen flight displays work with your existing GPS, radios, and traffic sensors, so you don’t have to upgrade them until you’re ready.

The Evolution™ 1500C3 combines the powerful, award-winning EFD1000C3 Pro PFD (Primary Flight Display) with the versatile EFD500 MFD (Multi-function Flight Display) to deliver a full-featured, exceptionally easy-to- use glass panel at the lowest price on the market.

The Pro PFD provides professional-grade EFIS primary flight instruments, with a full-featured electronic HSI with moving map. The 500 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.

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.

The Evolution 2000 combines the Pro PFD and the 1000 MFD to provide a system with MFD versatility as well as the safety and confidence of full PFD instrument redundancy. This Evolution Flight Display pair is an unbeatable duo that provides everything you need in an easy-to-use, full-featured glass cockpit for your GA aircraft.

Safety First. And Second. The cornerstone of aviation safety is redundancy. Aspen’s trailblazing Evolution 2000 is the only GA EFIS display that provides total system redundancy – at less fly-away cost than any competing system.

Evolution 2000’s safety architecture delivers an exclusive total backup ability that steam gauges and competing glass can’t match. From full PFD capability built into the MFD to dual redundant backup batteries, Evolution offers the only glass panel that can effectively eliminate heavy, unreliable steam instruments.

Aspen’s unique PFD/MFD window layout flexibility allows you to configure displays to prioritize critical flight data. Multiple views at your command significantly enhance situational awareness.

The Evolution™ 2500C3 combines the powerful, award-winning 1000C3 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 patented retrofit technology and superior compatibility for substantially lower installation costs and total cost of ownership.

The C3 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.

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.
