Aspen Avionics Goes Horizontal

Brad Hayden, the new Vice President of Marketing for Aspen Avionics, introduced the company's newest orientation: horizontal. The Aspen Avionics backup display is actually seven instruments in one: attitude, altitude, airspeed, heading, vertical speed, GPS flight plan and GPS steering. The buttons and knobs have been reoriented for the horizontal configuration, and an emergency 30-minute battery completes the unit. It is a TSO'd product that the company expects to begin delivering in December of this year for just under $10,000.
