Aspen Avionics offers discount on VFR PFD

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 was developed and certified in accordance with FAA technical standard order standards. It offers advanced features including an integrated air data computer, slaved directional gyro, course deviation needle, airspeed indicator, altimeter, turn coordinator, wind indication, and integration with a wide range of autopilots, said Albuquerque, New Mexico-based Aspen Avionics.

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.”
