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 on installation.

Aspen’s flagship Evolution Flight Displays are lightweight and compact—under 4 pounds—eliminating the need for heavy remote mount boxes and wiring.


Flexible and Compatible

The Evolution system is built with an open architecture offering broad compatibility with legacy systems already installed in your cockpit.

The Aspen system is customizable to your needs and budget. Flexible installation options of one, two, or three displays allow you to choose the configuration that best works for you. Additionally, bezel-loading micro SD cards make software upgrades and optional features easy to install. This all adds up to future-proofing your investment in glass panel technology.


The Evolution Flight Display is the most affordable certified EFIS display technology available in the helicopter market today with options starting around $15K.

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

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 these are what Aspen delivers.

Aspens’ Primary Flight Displays (PFDs) are an approved replacement for your mechanical flight instruments. The Multi-function Flight Displays (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.

• Brilliant, direct sunlight-readable, 6-inch 760x400 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
