Aspen avionics available on Robinson helicopters

Aspen Avionics Evolution glass cockpits will be offered on Robinson R22, R44, and turbine R66 models. The Evolution primary flight display will be a factory option late this year. Aspen Avionics systems are already available on the Bell 206 and Eurocopter AS350.

The standard features of the Evolution PFD for helicopters include solid-state attitude heading reference system, a built-in 30-minute backup, and a built-in emergency GPS.

The unit also includes a digital horizontal situation indicator with moving map, a GPS flightplan overlay, ARC and 360-degree viewing modes, airspeed and altitude tapes, and integration with the primary navigation system, including ADF, DME, VOR, and the autopilot.
