Sporty’s updates Flying the Aspen Evolution

Sporty’s recently updated its “Flying the Aspen Evolution” program with the addition of Evolution Synthetic Vision (ESV) displayed on the PFD and MFD, which includes 3D terrain and obstacles, unusual attitude guidance, distance line and range markers, dynamic traffic display and the dynamic flight path marker.

“Now that thousands of general aviation pilots have upgraded their panels with Aspen, this video will help them use all the features and benefits Aspen offers,” says Sporty’s Academy President Eric Radtke.

In addition, Flying the Aspen Evolution examines electronic charts on the MFD, including approach charts, departure and arrival procedures and airport diagrams. Like all Sporty’s training programs, the video is chock-full of real-life flying scenarios so you can see the equipment in actual flying conditions. “We go beyond the meat and potatoes of using this equipment,” adds Radtke. “We like to provide insights and tips that might have taken a user a dozen flight hours to learn.”

Flying the Aspen Evolution is 75 minutes in length and covers all software updates between v2.0 and v2.5, including system control and display improvements on Aspen’s PFD and MFD. The program is available in DVD format [D535A], as an app, and as a download [E535A] for $31.95 at or by calling Sporty’s at 800-SPORTYS.
