Evolution E5 EFI Approved for Installation into Aircraft Without a Panel-Mount GPS
Aspen Avionics announces it has obtained FAA approval to install its budget-friendly E5 Electronic Flight Instrument (EFI) into aircraft without a panel-mount GPS. The E5 is the only flight display in Aspen’s product line approved with this installation configuration, opening the door to many aircraft owners and flight schools with aircraft equipped with dual or single NAV/COMs that want to update their existing steam gauges to glass at an affordable price.
“Starting at only $4,995, the Evolution E5 offers an easy and economic path for aircraft owners to remove outdated and high-maintenance vacuum systems and air-driven gyros,” says Scott Smith, director of Sales. “Additionally, owners will have the opportunity to streamline their panel with Aspen’s patented, retrofit display technology which substantially lowers installation costs.”
Aspen Avionics’ Evolution E5 EFI is also upgradable to a full TSO’d MAX display, demonstrating the company’s commitment to developing an avionics platform that can grow with a pilot’s needs. Aspen’s unique approach to designing and engineering new products for the general aviation community gives its current customer-base a path to cost-effectively upgrade to the latest Aspen displays without investing in a new cockpit installation.
The Evolution E5 EFI is approved for IFR flight when installed with a panel-mounted IFR GPS. When installed without a panel-mount GPS, the E5 EFI is approved for VFR flight only.
