Aspen Avionics specializes in making reliable, solid-state avionic technologies for helicopter applications. Our products increase situational awareness and reduce pilot workload, making it easier and safer to fly every mission. Our philosophy is that investing in the latest avionics technology shouldn’t always mean spending a lot of money—on equipment or installation.

Aspen’s flagship product line is the Evolution Flight Display system. Evolution displays are lightweight and compact—under four pounds, including the remote sensor module (RSM).

The Evolution system is built upon an open architecture that enables compatibility with the systems already present in your cockpit.


Additionally, front-load micro SD cards make software upgrades and new features easy to install. This all adds up to future-proofing your investment in glass panel technology.

With looming FAA mandates for NVG, HTAWS and NextGen, Aspen is committed to delivering upgrades that will make these transitions easier and more cost-effective for your operation.

Primary Flight Displays

The EFD1000H Pro PFD is an approved replacement for your mechanical flight instruments and is the most affordable “six-pack” replacement EFIS display technology available in the helicopter market today.


The EFD1000H and 500H MFDs allow you to expand your glass panel and enhance your flight mission with features such as high resolution digital moving map, terrain and obstacle awareness, datalink weather, traffic and more.

Perfect Fit for Every Mission

Law enforcement, search and rescue, military, medevac or IFR training—every mission requires reliable, easy-to-use tools to get the job done and this is what Aspen delivers. With flexible installation options, you can choose the configuration (one, two, or three displays) that works for you.

System features include:

Brilliant, direct sunlight-readable, 6-inch 760 x 400 TFT active matrix LCD display

Reliable solid-state attitude and heading reference system (AHRS)

Emergency GPS and backup battery with 30 minutes of backup time

Electronic HSI with moving map that displays GPS flight plan legs, waypoints, navaids and airports (PFD)
