Versatile Performance – presents attitude information with altitude, airspeed, vertical speed plus DG/CDI course deviation indicator into a single display with a backup battery. Includes Global Positioning System (GPSS) Steering, and attitude heading reference system (ADAHRS).|
Reliable - With redesigned electronics and new glass, the Evolution E5 has a bolder and brighter display and offers higher reliability, more capability and increased processing speed all while retaining Aspen’s unique form factor design that keeps installation costs down.
Affordable – real glass
Compatible – works with your panel’s existing avionics
Autopilot – interfaces to the new TruTrak Vizion Autopilot and is compatible with most legacy autopilots.
Simple Installation – the unique form-fit factor design slides into existing panel—one install does it all.
Upgradeable – affordably add HSI and other features such as ADS-B, Angle of Attack, Synthetic Vision and Hazard Awareness with an easy upgrade path that leverages your Evolution E5 investment without unit replacement.
Smart Investment – increases aircraft value, situational awareness.
Safety and precision that doesn't break the bank. Robust autopilot integration for certified aircraft with the Trio Pro Pilot autopilot and Aspen Avionics Evolution E5 and Evolution Pro MAX displays.
The Trio Pro Pilot is a two-axis digital autopilot designed for precise navigation and altitude control. It encompasses all the performance and safety features of Trio’s other systems and makes them available in a single, panel-mounted instrument. The combined autopilot and display system offers dynamic functionality.
The Trio Pro Pilot Autopilot is a fully-featured system that provides you with a list of workload-reducing and safety-enhancing features that were previously unavailable on aftermarket autopilots.
Together, the Aspen Evolution display system and Trio Pro Pilot Autopilot bring a new level of precision and safety to your cockpit. The feature-rich Evolution Flight Display system presents all your critical flight information in one, easy-to-read location for flying that is simpler… and safer.
I installed the E5 in my 172k and have flown behind it for a year, really like the attitude indicator, easy to read. the DG is rock solid, havent used the HSI function but IFR behind this unit would be real nice i think. Lots of little features and upgrade options. Mounted the RSM on the upper tail cone just fwd of the ventral fin, like i said DG rock solid reliable.
Be aware (we found out the hard way) The ACU IS REQUIRED even for DIGITAL Autopilots like the Aerocruz if you want to use GPSS passthrough. What you lose without passthrough is the automatic altimeter updates and as of the new software release Feb,23 altitude selection from the E5 being forwarded to the AP. There is no good reason for it but Aspen doesnt see that this would work with a simple software change. So pony up the extra $$ or kill functionality and increase workload.

Per Aspen, the E5 will integrate with both the Stec-30 and the GTN 650.
When you install the RSM (Remote Sensor Module - Magnetometer), you have the option during time of order to mount externally on the top or bottom of the aircraft.
Per the manufacturer, an IFR approved panel mounted GPS is needed. IFR GPS does not need to be WAAS.
Yes, an IFR approved panel mounted GPS (does not have to be WAAS)
The E5 does not have to be installed by a dealer but does have to be installed by a A&P when being installed in a certified aircraft.
No, as the GPS transponder is for ADS-B out, where Aspen requires an IFR panel mounted GPS source
No. Per the manufacturer you will require an IFR GPS source such as a GNS430W or a GTN 650, etc.
The ACU is an Analog Converter unit. This integrates the Aspen E5 older analog systems.
Yes. It will accept one VOR source.
There is no added cost for it to be put in a certified aircraft. The E5 is a STC’d product. If interested, there is a version where you can upgrade to the PFD Pro Max, and that is TSO’d.
