Aspen Grand Glass Giveaway at Expo 2008

October 28, 2008

Aspen Avionics EFD1000 PFDAspen Avionics will award one lucky AOPA Expo attendee with an EFD1000 Pilot Primary Flight Display (PFD). The giveaway celebrates the production of Aspen’s 1,000th Evolution Flight Display system.

The Aspen Avionics EFD1000 PFD might sound familiar—that’s because the system is also in AOPA’s 2008 Get Your Glass Sweepstakes airplane. See what it’s like to fly the system in Sweepstakes Project Manager Ian J. Twombly’s article,  “Flying the Aspen Avionics EFD1000 PFD.”

Each registered Expo attendee will be provided with a ticket, which can be dropped into the spinning bin at Aspen’s booth (1438) for a chance to win the PDF. AOPA President Phil Boyer and Aspen President and CEO John Uczekaj will choose the winner during a random drawing at 3 p.m. on Nov. 8.

“The Grand Glass Giveaway will give one lucky pilot the ability to realize the enhanced capabilities and safety the EFD1000 PDF brings to the general aviation cockpit,” said Aspen Director of Marketing Brad Hayden. “It is only fitting that we give away the one-thousandth Evolution Flight Display at AOPA Expo, since out very first unit was delivered to AOPA for their Get Your Glass Sweepstakes airplane.”

The EFD system received FAA certification in March 2008. For additional information on the Grand Glass Giveaway, visit Aspen’s Web site.
