Evolution Pro H PFD (Primary Flight Display) for helicopters. Aspen's EFIS display technology is a perfect fit for helicopter panels, with robust AHRS features and the latest in solid-state technology. Special vibration isolation design meets the rigors of demanding helicopter operations. Unparalleled reliability and accuracy make every mission safer. Breakthrough pricing makes EFIS display technology available for a fraction of the cost of traditional EFIS systems. The Pro H PFD delivers enhanced safety, reduced pilot workload and the flexibility to expand as your needs grow. The Pro H PFD is part of the Evolution Flight Display series, which can provide full PFD redundancy and many additional capabilities.

The EFD1000H gives you all the major tools that help professional pilots fly safely and easily in instrument conditions, at a breakthrough price. The Pro has all the same great features as the Pilot "integral ADAHRS, backup battery, emergency GPS, altitude alerter" plus a whole lot more.

The Horizontal Situation Indicator (HSI) integrates a course pointer and course deviation indicator (CDI) onto your slaved compass rose, and adds two bearing pointers that you can set to any VOR or GPS waypoint, for added situational awareness (and making DME arcs a breeze to fly!). Text information about your active waypoint is right there in front of you.

Arc mode is ideal for the en-route segment, showing your own ship at the bottom of the screen, your flight plan legs ahead of you, and nearby navaids and airports around you on a moving map. With optional software, you can even overlay datalink weather graphics and traffic on the map.

The Attitude Director Indicator (ADI) shows the same accurate attitude with airspeed and altitude tapes as the Pilot, and adds more. In approach mode, you'll have lateral and vertical deviation indicators, along with your approach minimums, right there on the ADI for a tight scan during this critical phase of flight. You'll get an alert when you reach barometric minimums, and a DH annunciator will illuminate at AGL minimums (when connected to a radar altimeter).

The Pro couples to most GA autopilots and flight directors, through its included Analog Converter Unit (ACU). You'll lose no functionality when replacing your mechanical HSI and ADI, and may gain some. An integral GPS Steering (GPSS) function can drive your autopilot in HDG mode through most GPS flight plan legs and course changes, and even along curved flight paths (like course reversals and holding patterns) when connected to an appropriate WAAS GPS navigator. If your autopilot supports a flight director, but your current attitude indicator doesn't, the Pro will give you a single-cue flight director that will make your hand flying even easier, more accurate and safer. The Pro delivers all the capabilities a serious instrument pilot needs on his or her primary instruments. And if you want even more, a simple software upgrade will take the Pro up to our highest-level PFD: the ATP.

Engineered for Easy Installation

The Evolution flight displays are innovative, modular system components that slide into existing 3-inch instrument holes in any instrument panel. A universal bracket provides easy surface mounting. The system can optionally be flush mounted. This unique design dramatically reduces installation time and cost.

The modular Evolution platform allows for easy expansion. The integrated displays mount side-by-side in one, two, and three display configurations for supreme flexibility and upgradability.
