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.
