Flying the world’s most affordable private jet : Eclipse 550

The ECLIPSE 550 features best in class performance, economics, and safety. With the ability to fly at altitudes up to 41,000 feet at a max cruise of 430 mph, all while consuming a mere 59 gallons of fuel per hour, the Eclipse 550 is the most efficient twin-engine Private Jet on the planet.

Avio now supports XM satellite radio weather, stand-alone integrated standby display units and a full-function moving map.

The Eclipse 550 now sells for more than $3 million, equipped with optional weather radar, autothrottles, traffic alerting system, Class B TAWS and synthetic vision, along with other popular upgrades.

Eclipse brags that it's the only twin-engine jet for under $3 million, and the most fuel-efficient, too, consuming 59 gallons per hour.

The twin-engine Eclipse 550 is a true “personal jet”—small, nimble, and designed to be flown by an owner-pilot. Now the five-seat (a sixth-seat option is available) jets are available to all pilots through time-share, lease, and jet card programs offered by Central Jet Charter Inc.

The Eclipse 550 can fly at altitudes up to 41,000 feet and it cruises up to 430 mph, while consuming just 59 gallons of fuel per hour. Its maximum range is 1,125 miles.

The Eclipse 550, the new production twin-engine jet from Eclipse Aerospace, features best in class performance, economics, and safety. With the ability to fly at altitudes up to 41,000 feet at a max cruise of 430 mph, all while consuming less than 200 litres (400 lbs) of fuel per hour.

The Eclipse 550 is the most efficient twin-engine jet on the planet. The plain fact that this capability is available in an aircraft that is hundreds of thousands of dollars less expensive than its nearest competitor, and that its operating costs are 35% lower than its nearest competitor, is no small feat.

The Eclipse Jet is the world's most economical twin-engine jet, costing less to acquire and less to operate than any other twin-engine jet on the planet.

The avionics system in the Eclipse 550, designed to be completely integrated, gives the pilot the ability to move between graphical systems interfaces quickly, removing unnecessary data and allowing the pilot to focus on the task at hand.

Each synoptic page is displayed on the large, high resolution, multi function display (MFD), providng the pilot a complete picture of the operations and performance of that system, all in one location.

The Eclipse jet to be flown single pilot, adding safety features that other light jets can only dream about – features that height awareness of weather, traffic and other obstacles in Flight.

A Short History of the World’s Best Selling Private Jet

A Short History of the World’s Best-Selling Private Jet
When Embraer introduced the Phenom 300 in 2009, it may have seemed like just a larger version of the company’s previously launched entry-level jet, the Phenom 100. It had a similar fuselage, though it was a bit longer, and like the 100, it could be flown by a single pilot. Yet, it also was one of the fastest aircraft in the light-jet category, and it had great climb-to-cruising speed, good range, and low operating costs. With a price of $9 million, it was destined to be popular.

Indeed, even before Embraer introduced the plane, the fractional-ownership company Flight Options (which is now a sibling of FlexJet) ordered 100 examples, with an option to buy 50 more. It was a $1.2 billion investment, but Flight Options was selling shares of the Phenom 300 faster than it could take delivery of the aircraft.

The Phenom 300 quickly became a staple in the fractional and charter markets, giving many business flyers a chance to experience the oval-shaped cabin with its wide center aisle, reclining seats, and enclosed lavatory. Passengers must have enjoyed their flights, because sales of the Phenom 300 have been soaring. In 2012, it became the most delivered light jet, and 2015 marked the third straight year that it was the world’s most delivered business jet.

5 Most Economical Private Jets In The World

Subscribe for MORE:
Flying in a private jet is generally reserved for the few wealthy who can afford that kind of luxury. it’s quite expensive to fly in a private jet than it is in a commercial jet. The cost for A seat on a private jet is up to 100 times more than a seat on a commercial flight. That’s because it is very expensive to operate any jet in the world. Commercial airlines are able to bare that cost because they can carry hundreds of people at a time so the cost is split across the board. But a small or midsize jet can only carry a few people on each flight.

Over the years, we’ve seen an introduction of newer types of jets that are smaller in size, yet capable of flying up to six people on board. These jets are suppose to reduce the overall cost of the private owner/operator. They are called VLJs aka Very light jets. A very light jet can cost up to one tenth per hour to operate than a typical midsize jet. Today we will take a look at 5 of the most economical and fuel effectuate private jets in the world.

1. Embraer Phenom 100 – The Phenom 100 is the smallest line of jet produced by Embraer, yet it is one of the largest in its class of light jets. With a cabin large enough to fly 6 people comfortably at jet like speeds. This little rocket machine will cruise north of 400 miles per hour and get you as far as a thousand miles or more. Did I also mention that there’s a potty on board? yea even that’s special for a jet in this class.

PHENOM 100 Range: Up to 1,356 miles
Speed: Up to 460 mph
Cost per hour: $1,152
Price: $4.5 Million

2. Honda Jet – Yes the global Japanese auto maker honda also builds airplanes. The Honda Jet is supposed to be a light business class aircraft and it was first introduced some fifteen years ago. Since the first prototype, it took at leas a decade for Honda to get this jet certified. And since certification last year, The Honda jet is now being mass produced. Although there’s a long waiting list if you like to buy one today. The Honda jet like the Phenom is nothing short of spectacular. Very economical while traveling at speeds north of 400 miles per hour.

HONDA JET Range: Up to 1,388 miles
Speed: Up to 423 mph
Cost per hour: $1,135
Price: $5 Million

3. Cessna Citation Mustang – Once a flagship in Cessna’s line of aircraft, sadly the citation mustang’s production has been halted since last year. The citation mustang is an amazing private jet with a nice cabin that will fit 6 people and fly over 1200 miles in range. Although the mustang has one of the smallest cabin space in it’s class. It does make up for that in speed and range.

CITATION MUSTANG Range: Up to 1,433 miles
Speed: Up to 391 mph
Cost per hour: $1,015
Price: $1.35 Million

4. Eclipse 550 – The eclipse 550 is another great private jet that is produced by One aviation. The 550 is a step up from the eclipse 500 which already offered a ton of range and plenty of speeds. The eclipse 550 is once of the most affordable private jets in the world that is single pilot operated. For about $3 million you can get your hands on a brand new eclipse 550, and used, you can get for less than $2 million. What’s most amazing about this aircraft is that it only burns about 50 gallons of fuel per hour in cruise. that’s just incredible for a jet engine, two jet engines for that matter, to burn that little about of fuel while traveling over 450 miles per hour.

5. Cirrus SF50 Vision Jet – In case you haven’t heard, there’s a new jet in town and it stands alone in its type and design. The Cirrus Vision jet is the company’s answer to more speed and flight ceiling. With a flight ceiling of 28,000 feet. It means you can fly over bad weather. And the Cirrus jet is no slug either. With cruise speeds over 300 miles per hour, it means you get to your destination fast and in comfort. The best part about this aircraft is the fact that it only has one engine to operate and maintain. What that means is much less fuel burn per hour. The Cirrus jet is by far the most affordable jet to operate. It is also once of the most affordable to buy at $2 million.

CIRRUS SF50 Range: Up to 1,266 miles
Speed: Up to 345 mph
Cost per hour: $662
Price: $2 Million

FLIGHT CHOPS DISCLAIMER:
I am a "weekend warrior" private pilot, I fly for fun with no intentions of going commercial. I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience – I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve…. Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share. Feedback is invited; however, please keep it positive.
