Aspen Avionics has released the price for its recently introduced Evolution Angle of Attack Indicator (AOA), which integrates directly into its Evolution primary flight and multi-function displays. The software upgrade will be priced at $1,995 and is expected to be available in July.
“We are offering an affordably-priced, software-based angle of attack safety product that provides real-time stall margin awareness without hardware, cabling or aircraft modifications. The only tasks associated with the installation consists of a simple software upgrade to the Aspen primary and/or the multi-function flight displays, plus a short calibration flight as part of the return to service,” said Perri Coyne, director of marketing operations.
Aspen’s Evolution AOA indicator calculates angle of attack from the flight envelope data received from the air data computer and attitude heading reference system (AHRS) integrated in the Evolution 1000 PFD or Evolution 1000 MFD, and a certified GPS. It does not require additional hardware, nor does it require any external aircraft modifications or sensors, saving significant resources on installation costs.
