Aspen Avionics announced that it is making its FAA-certified, Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) display-capable VFR primary flight display available for $3,995 during April, a $1,000 discount off the list price.
The VFR PFD can be upgraded to a full IFR Pro 1000 or Pro Plus PFD through a software upgrade that eliminates the need for future cockpit overhauls. The NextGen-capable unit displays ADS-B traffic and Nexrad weather when combined with a variety of ADS-B solution providers including Garmin, L-3, FreeFlight Systems, and Aspen’s ADS-B transceivers, “at a price on parity with non-certified, and non-NextGen capable PFDs,” the company said.
“Aspen has been committed to developing general aviation solutions that are innovative, safe, affordable, and contribute to the future growth of the pilot community,” said Mark Ferrari, Aspen Avionics vice president of sales and customer support. “We continue to invest in this segment of the flying public that has been underserved with an affordable glass panel solution that offers more value, features and functions than displays manufactured to the recently loosened certification standards.”
