For the third year, glass-panel manufacturer
Aspen Avionics is operating its North 40 Welcome Center in the popular
airplane camping area during EAA AirVenture 2010.
Located adjacent to the North 40
Admissions Gate and tram stop, the Aspen Avionics Welcome Center is the
place to cool off, rehydrate, and visit with fellow pilots.
It’s also an excellent place to learn
more about Aspen’s Evolution flight display system, an affordable,
expandable, and upgradable primary flight display, multifunction
display, and hazard sensor cockpit solution for general aviation
“The North 40 is truly the heart of
AirVenture,” said Brad Hayden, Aspen’s vice president of marketing.
“It’s important for us as a company to find ways to be closer to our
customers and foster a feeling of community.
“Partnering with the EAA to create the
North 40 Welcome Center has been a great way to do this.”
This year’s expanded partnership with
the EAA will bring some additional creature comforts to the camping
area, including an EAA merchandise tent, wireless Internet, e-mail
kiosks, and picnic tables. The Aspen tent will also have available an XM
weather station and a Jeppesen flight-planning kiosk.
Several customer aircraft, along with the
Diamond DA40 of Aspen President John Uczekaj, will also be on display
for visitors to see examples of the Evolution flight display system in
The Aspen Avionics North 40 Welcome
Center opened Saturday, July 24, and will close at the end of the show
on Sunday, August 1.
