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.
