Aspen Avionics, Inc., manufacturer of the Evolution Flight Display System, has received an amendment to the Transport Canada Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) that grants installation approval of the system in Canada. The amended STC now enables all aircraft on Aspen’s Approved Model List (AML) of more than 700 aircraft to install the Evolution Primary Flight Display (PFD) and Multi-Function Display (MFD) product lines. It also recognizes an FAA allowance to remove most mechanical backup flight instruments upon installation of Aspen’s Evolution PFD and MFD with DuoSafeTM capabilities.
The benefit to Canada-based owners and operators is that now all aircraft registered in Canada that fall under Aspen’s AML have an approval path to install Aspen’s glass cockpit solution. The Aspen Evolution Flight Display System is an expandable and upgradable PFD, MFD and hazard sensor cockpit solution for general aviation aircraft. Compatible with existing avionics, the system lets aircraft owners install all Evolution Flight Displays and options at once, or separately, as their needs and budgets permit, according to company officials.
