Oshkosh, WI, EAA AirVenture, July 23, 2018: Today, Aspen Avionics announced it is in the final stages of receiving FAA approval for the Evolution E5 Dual Electronic Flight Instrument (EFI). Upon approval, the Evolution E5 will to be sold directly to consumers by Aspen Avionics authorized dealers and by aviation retailers.
Introduced in April 2018 at the Aircraft Electronics Association (AEA) annual convention, the STC’d, non-TSO 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) starting at $4,995. “The interest in the E5 has been overwhelming, and our order book is filling up quickly. “We expect be shipping the E5 in August,” said Mark Ferrari, Aspen vice president of sales and customer support.
Like all Aspen displays, the Evolution E5 EFI is configurable, upgradeable, and affordable. The E5 can also be upgraded to the brand new EFD1000 Pro MAX series primary flight display through an affordable upgrade path which comes with a new two-year warranty. Unlike other standalone systems, Aspen’s versatile design and open architecture allow features to be easily configured to specific flight needs with the opportunity to add additional options and capability without unit replacement.
With redesigned electronics and new glass, the Evolution E5 has a bolder and brighter display and offers higher reliability, more capability and increased processing speed all while retaining Aspen’s unique form factor design that keeps installation costs down. Designed as a drop-in non-TSO replacement for traditional mechanical vacuum instruments, the Evolution E5 also interfaces with most legacy autopilots and will also interface to the new TruTrak Vizion autopilot.
