Aspen Avionics' latest ADS-B software upgrade now certified

Aspen Avionics announced today that FAA certification has been received for its latest software upgrade to include several additional ADS-B display features on its Evolution 500/1000 multi-function display (MFD). The latest software upgrade includes textual METARS information to be displayed on the MFD which provides an intuitive display of subscription-free weather data in an easy-to-read format.

The expanded ADS-B IN display capability includes the following information on its Evolution MFD:

• Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs)

• Airman's meteorological information (AIRMETS)

• Significant meteorological information (SIGMETS)

• Convective SIGMETS

• Winds Aloft

• Temps Aloft

• Terminal aerodrome forecast (TAF)

All Aspen, and Aspen-compatible ADS-B products are capable of displaying the additional flight information on the MFD. To date, Aspen has partnered with L-3 Avionics Products, FreeFlight Systems and Garmin to ensure customers with Aspen cockpits have a choice in selecting how to become compliant without having to upgrade their entire panel and receive the most comprehensive data available.
