PHX Facility Also Approved For Installs
Cutter Aviation announced Thursday the first Aspen Avionics
EFD1000 Evolution PFD (Primary Flight Display) installation by the
Cutter Aviation avionics service center in Albuquerque, NM. The
installation, on a Piper Arrow, was part of the FAA certification
process that paved the way for full certification of the EFD1000
PFD in March.
ANN has reported
extensively on the EF1000 Evolution system, aimed
at the population of older high-performance single-engine general
aviation aircraft. The EFD1000 is an affordable electronic flight
instrument display system that will provide owners the increased
safety margin through enhanced situational awareness in-flight
without requiring a radical and costly redesign of their existing
The EFD1000 fits into the space occupied by the attitude
indicator, and replaces the HSI and VSI in a standard installation.
The simplicity of an EFD1000 installation means less down time for
an aircraft and lower cost of labor for the owner.
"The situational awareness that the
EFD1000 provides is much higher than anything else that’s
available in this budget range," said Cutter Aviation avionics shop
foreman Tom Parks. "It gives older aircraft a new lease on life to
compete with aircraft rolling out of factories now!"
Cutter Aviation anticipates installation of both the EFD1000
Pilot PFD and EFD1000 Pro PFD to last two-and-a-half weeks for a
standard installation, at either its Albuquerque Sunport location
(ABQ,) or its Phoenix Sky Harbor facility (PHX). Cutter personnel
note customers may chose to upgrade other avionics at that time, as
well, to take full advantage of the EFD1000.
