PAL-V Liberty announced recently that its flying car will have Aspen Avionic’s “Evolution Flight Display System” integrated as standard into its digital cockpit, reports yahoo.com.
Based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Aspen Avionics builds digital avionic technology for small commercial and general aviation aircraft, and has developed some of the aerospace industry’s first digital flight displays as replacements for analogue mechanical gauges and controls. Aspen Avionics’ GPS-backed digital cockpits provide a full array of real-time flight data including altitude, air speed, weather, terrain, nearby air traffic, and navigational information.
Aspen International Regional Sales Manager, Cory Relling, commented, “We designed the Evolution product display over 15 years ago. With over 20,000 displays installed worldwide, we never imagined that an Aspen primary flight display would be among those installations in the first commercial flying car.”
