Avio Avionics system in the Eclipse 550

The Integrated Flight Management System in the Eclipse 550 greatly reduces pilot workload, and in effect acts as a virtual copilot. Avio IFMS provides digital avionics with demonstrated airline reliability and systems capability unparalleled in the very light jet segment. Avio IFMS features an Integrated Flight Management System, Class 3 E-charts, and XM Satellite Weather. The 13 microprocessors in the IS&S displays control all the major aircraft systems. Dual WAAS / SBAS beta-3 GPS receivers are utilized for precise navigation. With the enhanced situational awareness, electronic charts and maps, display and control of the aircraft systems and the integrated autopilot control panel, the pilot is provided with the most advanced FMS available for the light jet class.

Spend Less Getting More Accomplished

With budgets being squeezed and everyone wanting to do more with less, the Eclipse Jet brings tremendous capability at a surprising cost. The Eclipse Jet is the worlds most economical twin-engine jet, costing less to acquire and less to operate than any other twin-engine jet on the planet. The direct operating cost of an Eclipse Jet is far less than our nearest jet competitor and comparable to many high-performance turboprop aircraft.

Cost of Acquisition

The Eclipse Jet has the lowest acquisition cost ($2.995 MM) of any jet on the market, allowing you to achieve jet speeds at the purchase price of a turboprop! Priced hundreds of thousands of dollars less than our closest jet competitor, the Eclipse Jet will show the world that you are being careful with your transportation budget.

Cost of Ownership

The Eclipse keeps your recurring costs low, whether it be hangar, insurance, or training. Every aspect of the airplane has been optimized for cost reduction. View Complete Eclipse 550 Operating Economics

5-year Eclipse Advantage Maintenance Program The Eclipse Advantage program includes all standard labor and parts costs for required, scheduled inspections including the 300 hour, 24 month inspection, the 1,200 hour, 48 month inspection, as well as lesser inspections such as battery cap checks, fire extinguisher inspections, and more.

5-year Factory Warranty The Eclipse 550 Limited Aircraft Warranty covers all defects in material and workmanship on the Eclipse 550 for a period of 5 years or 1,000 hours. This warranty, running concurrently with Eclipse Advantage, delivers Eclipse 550 owners true product coverage and assured reliability.

Cost of Flying

The Eclipse’s P&WC engines consume less fuel in an hour’s flight than some jets consume taxiing for takeoff. With the lowest direct operating costs and fixed annual costs of any jet on the planet (as little as $2.02 per nautical mile) — the Eclipse Jet will save you money every time you start the engines.

Cost to the Environment

The Eclipse Jet gives back to the environment every time it flies. By using such small quantities of fuel, the Eclipse Jet leaves a minimal carbon footprint. The Eclipse is also the only jet in the world to have moved away from Halon as a fire suppressant (Halon is a deadly toxin). We strive to be environmentally friendly, and are proud of our record.
