ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Aspen Avionics’ Evolution Flight Display is part of a new exhibit at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History in Albuquerque. The exhibit, called Dynamics of Flight, runs June 1 through Dec. 31, 2013, and highlights the advances in aircraft design and technology from the Wright brothers to the Space Shuttle.
Visitors can experience flight via two computerized simulators to help understand the concepts of pitch, roll, and yaw. As a virtual pilot, attendees can also see modern digital flight deck technology in action with an Aspen Evolution Primary Flight Display integrated into one of the simulators.
“As the industry faces a pilot shortage, it is important to spark interest and to create a desire in the next generation to pursue a career in aviation,” says Aspen’s Vice President of Marketing Brad Hayden. “The Dynamics of Flight exhibit will be a significant touchpoint for the students in and around the Albuquerque area to get hands-on with aviation, and Aspen is proud to be a part of creating that experience.”
“Dynamics of Flight will give our visitors a new appreciation for aeronautics and the incredible changes this industry has made to our world,” says Greg Shuman, Museum Deputy Director. “We are pleased to have Aspen Avionics as a partner in bringing this exhibit to life and to share it with our community.”
