Classic Aero-TV: Touring The Toy Store -- Aspen Avionics Plant Tour

One Of This Decade's Rare GA Success Stories Shows ANN How It's Done

As ANN and Aero-TV prepares for its Annual LIVE PROGRAMMING from the floor of the 54th Annual AEA Convention and Tradeshow, we figured this was as good an excuse as any to show you some of the things that got us excited last year in order to get you ready for EVEN MORE EXCITING things this year! We can't tell you much... YET... but this year's AEA Convention is likely to be one of the most newsworthy on record... and if you'll join us LIVE on Wednesday, at 0930 (PT) or 1230 (ET), we'll be sure to show you what all the fuss is about... as ONLY ANN can.

Talk about a trip to the toy store! In the midst of all the balloonacy of the 2010 ABQ Balloon Fiesta, the hot-air-weary folks of ANN's Aero-TV division made a visit to the home of Aspen Avionics -- a company founded by true aviation enthusiasts back in 2004.

Aspen’s flagship product line is the Evolution Flight Display System, the most innovative—and affordable—glass cockpit system ever for certified general aviation (GA) aircraft. The Evolution system enables aircraft owners to upgrade their primary flight instrument “six pack” to glass cockpit technology all at once, or in stages. Easy and inexpensive software upgrades add new features and capabilities, while future-proofing the system and protecting owners’ investments.

The Evolution Flight Display product line was announced at EAA AirVenture in 2007. Technical Standard Order (TSO) authorization was granted for the Evolution Pilot and Pro PFDs in March 2008. In January 2009 the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) granted E-TSO authorization of the Evolution Flight Display.

In September 2009, the 500 MFD, the 1000 MFD and the EWR50 Weather Receiver received TSO and AML-STC authorization from the FAA, completing the certification process for the Evolution Flight Display System. Most recently in July 2010, Aspen also received certification for the Class III PFD – the EFD1000C3 Pro PFD for Class III category aircraft. Aspen is also in the process of gaining STCs for the rotorcraft market.

Come join ANN and Aero-TV as we take a look at the home of Aspen Avionics... and a company that will, no doubt, be a large part of a bright new future for GA avionics.
