W ith the av erag e ag e of g eneral- av iation airc raft w ell
abov e 3 5 - most of them hav e hu ll v alu es below $ 5 0 ,0 0 0
- it' s little w onder so many airc raft ow ners miss ou t du e to
a ordability.
F or many pilots, the c ost of c onv erting to all g lass
approaches the value of their aircraft. For that matter, money
holds back some interested only in going partial glass.
W ith $ 1 0 ,0 0 0 plu s c onv ersions, it c an be tou g h to j u stify
spending that mu c h on an airc raft w ith v alu es betw een
20,000 and 50,000. This isn't news to any avionics maker,
at least as evidenced by the e orts so many companies
devoted to marketing glass options that won't break the bank.
The past several years saw numerous new glass
c omponents c ome to mark et, V F R and I F R , aimed at the
budget-constrained aviators - which is a lot of us. We're
talk ing u nder $ 1 0 ,0 0 0 to g o g lass and, if it' s relev ant, add a
basic u niv ersal ac c ess transc eiv er to c omply w ith the A D S - B
mandate.
S ome ow ners may hesitate ou t of a desire to g o all- in on
glass. But with some of these systems, it need not be an
all-or-nothing proposition. Not when they have the option of
tak ing a prog ressiv e- u pg rade approac h, spreading the all- in
outcome across two or three annuals.
A v ionic s shops shou ld c onsider hig hlig hting su c h options
to aircraft owners. Remind them that a glass-cockpit
c onv ersion need not be a one- step- and- done proc ess w ith
an una ordable price.
Aspen Avionics: Evolution E5
The folks from Albuquerque, New Mexico, unveiled their
latest glass component in March 2018, and the Evolution E5
became a quick hit.
A non-TSO'd component, the E5 incorporates all
six analog instruments in the standard six-pack into an
upgradable solid-state electronic flight display that shares the
same form factor with Aspen's entire Evolution product line. It
fits into the location where the attitude indicator and DG HSI
typically reside - two openings, one above the other.
A t a pric e u nder $ 5 ,0 0 0 u ninstalled, pilots often ask w hat
they c an g et for that pric e - and is it w orth it?
Aspen designed the E5 as a drop-in non-TSO'd, STC'd,
fully IFR-certified replacement for traditional analog gyro
and v ac u u m instru ments, displaying all its data on an ac tiv e
matrix LCD measuring 6 inches diagonally.

THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS
SAW NUMEROUS NEW
GLASS COMPONENTS
COME TO MARKET,
VFR AND IFR,

AIMED AT THE
BUDGET-CONSTRAINED
AVIATORS.
That answers the question with a solid yes if the pilot or
owner covets the common benefits of glass components.
First up, the Evolution E5 Dual Electronic Flight Instrument
combines a traditional AI, DG and CDI HSI into one display.
The unit also o ers GPS roll steering when connected
to a compatible autopilot and GPS source. The unit also
c ontains an internal air- data c ompu ter, an attitu de and airdata heading referenc e system, as w ell as a bac k u p battery
in case of loss of electrical power.
With the ADAHRS, the E5 also displays all the needed air
data: airspeed, altitu de, v ertic al speed, tu rn c oordinator and
slip skid indicator.
Aspen's E5 produces a brighter, more-vibrant display than
previous Evolution products but retains Aspen's unique form
factor to help reduce installation costs.
The engineers designed flexibility into the E5 that allows
future upgrades without totally replacing the E5.
Similar to Aspen's other products, the E5 remains
perpetually configurable and upgradable - a ordably. Aspen
products all have the option to receive a ordable software
u pdates rather than pu rc hasing all- new av ionic s hardw are
every few years.
The E5 is an ideal steppingstone into glass thanks to
the upgrade paths available. Owners and pilots have the
option to bu ild their dream g lass c oc k pit in steps - or all at
once.
