Aspen Evolution E5

Simplifying the transition from old-style vacuum gauges to electronic displays, the Evolution E5 is a drop-in replacement that gives you advanced functionality with easy and affordable upgrades that allow you to add additional capabilities and take advantage of future technologies without replacing your existing display.  

Evolution e5 Dual Electronic Flight Instrument Features

Versatile Performance – presents attitude information with altitude, airspeed, vertical speed plus HSI  into a single display with a backup battery. Includes Global Positioning System (GPSS) Steering, and attitude heading reference system (ADAHRS)

New advanced features –  Unlock the true power of the E5 now featuring a standard HSI and optional True Airspeed, Outside Air Temperature, Winds, and GPS annunciations through a simple software upgrade

Flexible installation options –  the E5 is approved for IFR flight when installed with a panel-mounted IFR GPS.  When installed without a panel mount GPS the E5 is approved for VFR flight only.
