Aspen Avionics, based in Albuquerque, N.M., received FAA Supplemental Type Certification for installation of its Evolution Flight Display System on the Eurocopter AS350 model helicopter.
Aspen’s H-series Primary Flight Displays (PFD) is a lightweight, compact, all solid-state digital replacement for legacy mechanical flight instruments, according to the company. The Multi-Function Flight Displays (MFD) add features like high-resolution moving maps, relative terrain and obstacle awareness, and traffic displays, Aspen said.
“Our clients demand the best and highest quality solutions that also stay within their budgets. The Aspen EFIS system is a great solution that will support the varied missions of our clientele –from law enforcement to air medical to utility,” says David Brigham, United Rotorcraft’s President. “These helicopters fly a lot and they fly hard. Our customers need solutions that will stand up to this tough operational environment. Aspen’s solid-state construction is a great solution.”
