Aspen Avionics debuts Evolution Pilot H for helicopters

Aspen Avionics, manufacturer of the Evolution Flight Display system and creator of Connected Panel technology, has introduced the new EFD1000H Pilot Primary Flight Display (PFD) for helicopters.

The Pilot H PFD is a lightweight, compact, all solid-state digital replacement for legacy mechanical flight instruments and is built upon Attitude and Heading Reference Sensor (AHRS) technology – like the rest of the Evolution Flight Display product line, company officials said. The Pilot H features airspeed and altitude tapes, an integral altitude alerter, a slaved directional gyro with heading bug, base map view with flight plan overlay, display of real-time winds aloft, outside air temperature, true airspeed and ground speed, built-in backup battery, and emergency GPS functionality.

“We are excited to expand the Evolution helicopter product line by offering the new Pilot H PFD. This system is geared toward helicopter operators that fly VFR-based missions,” says Aspen Vice President of Sales and Customer Support Mark Ferrari. “The Pilot H allows us to lower the price for entry into a glass panel solution by eliminating some non-essential features like autopilot integration and electronic HSI that our VFR customers simply don’t need.”

The Pilot H PFD system retails for $11,995 and will initially be available through Aspen’s existing helicopter STC partners to include Western Avionics of Canada and Helicopter Services of Nevada.
