Aspen Avionics announced an expanded roster of airplanes approved for installation of its EFD1000 Evolution PFD, now available for more than 600 makes and models of GA airplanes weighing up to 6,000 pounds. Higher-gross-weight airplanes will be added to the list by year-end, the company said. The Aspen PFD replaces the attitude indicator and directional gyro in typical instrument panels and costs $5,995 to $12,995, depending on the version. A new feature that Aspen buyers have been asking for, an XM satellite weather display, is also now available for an additional $2,495 using a receiver built by Heads Up Technologies.
