Aspen Avionics today announced its Evolution EFD 1000H Pro has gained EASA minor change approval (MCA) for installation on the Eurocopter AS355.
Avionik Straubing of Germany designed the engineering package for the certification and partnered with Instruments de Precision de la Cote Ouest (IPCO) of France, which performed the installation. The minor change approval covers Eurocopter AS355 models AS355E, AS355F, AS355F2, AS355N, and AS355NP.
“Eurocopter AS355 operators can now benefit from the latest glass panel technology with improved reliability and decreased maintenance costs through the replacement of mechanical navigation instruments and spinning mass gyros with the installation of EFD 1000H Pro primary flight display,” said Mark Ferrari, vice president sales, Aspen Avionics. The MCA includes an EASA-approved flight manual supplement and restricts operation to day VFR.
Aspen Avionics’ European helicopter supplemental type certificate (STC) and its certification partners continue to expand installation approvals for several aircraft makes and models. A list of these partner EASA STCs may be viewed or downloaded by clicking here.
