Aspen Avionics announced today the Technical Standard Order (TSO) approval of Evolution Synthetic Vision (ESV) for Evolution Primary Flight Displays (PFDs) and Multi-function Flight Displays (MFDs). Evolution Synthetic Vision is enabled by Software Version 2.4.x, which will be available upon Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) approval. FAA STC approval of ESV is imminent and shipment availability is expected to be mid-September 2011. This field-loadable software upgrade is now available through Aspen’s authorized dealer network for $2995, which for a limited time includes ESV on up to two additional Aspen displays when purchased for the first display (up to three displays per air- craft).

Customers who fly with Evolution Synthetic Vision will be impressed by the wealth of information that can be inter- preted at a glance,” says Brad Hayden, Aspen’s Vice President of Marketing. “Like the entire Evolution system, Aspen’s syn- thetic vision provides a level of flexibility not found in compet- ing offerings,”he said. Evolution Synthetic Vision includes all of the features air- craft operators expect of syn- thetic vision systems, including 3D terrain and obstacles, unusual attitude guidance, dis- tance line and range marker, 3D dynamic traffic display (with optionalsensors and EHA soft- ware), flight path marker and flight director symbology. These display elements are all designed to interact dynamically and intuitively to give the pilot the most accurate positional and situational awareness. “Aspen’s ESV will give our customer’s additional enhanced awareness,” says John Uczekaj,
