Aero-TV: Avionics Tip of the Week – Aspen’s EFD1000 Pro Auto-Zoom

Aspen’s Scott Smith Explains Some of the EFD1000 Pro’s Capabilities 

At the 2010 Heli-Expo, Aspen Avionics announced the STC certification authorizing installation of its EFD1000 flight display system in Bell 206 and 407 panels.  

Aspen developed the newly designated EFD1000H, featuring helicopter-specific software, in conjunction with Keystone Helicopter, calling the EFD1000H “the lowest priced certified EFIS in the helicopter market.”

Specifically designed with a vibration-isolating kit, the compact EFD1000H PFD and multifunction display (MFD) configurations feature modular architecture for full redundancy. The EFD1000H unit’s relatively small design allows for a simple and less costly installation; estimates for the total unit installation (including the PFD and MFD) are less than $27,000. Currently, Aspen is negotiating for approximately 50 such installations, most for public use on UH-1s, Bell 205s, and MD500s.
 

The EFD1000H is built on the foundation of Aspen’s revolutionary EFD1000 Pro. Though the entire package (including dual displays) weighs less than 10 pounds, the EFD1000 Pro provides a vast array of avionics capabilities; the unit features a solid-state attitude heading reference system (AHRS), altitude pre-select and altitude alerting, indicated and true airspeed readouts, and track deviation indication among other capabilities.

Aero-TV sat down with Aspen’s Scott Smith to get a closer look at some of the EFD1000 Pro’s most prominent features. In the first of his series, Smith explains the EFD1000 Pro’s Auto-Zoom capability.
