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 a mere 59 gallons of fuel per hour, the Eclipse 550 is the most efficient twin-engine jet on the planet.
Imagine traveling without having to wait in line. Without having to hand over your credit card and identification. Without worrying about extra baggage fees and how much your suitcase weighs. Imagine walking up to your Eclipse 550 and taxiing out immediately, getting to the destination of your choosing on your own schedule. That is what owning an Eclipse 550 will do for you.
Save Time, Save Money, Fly Safely
The Eclipse 550 is the most economically viable twin-engine jet on the planet. The efficient performance characteristics of the Eclipse Jet, including the consumption of a mere 48-59 gallons of fuel per hour, mean you'll be saving money every time you start the engines. Save time, money, and still fly with power, precision, and safety? That's the Eclipse way.
Home in Time for Dinner
What is the point of being successful in business if it translates into being in one place when you wish you were in another? Flying an Eclipse allows you to cover multiple cities in a single day. No more overnights and early commercial flights. Takeoff when you need to leave, get back in time for dinner.
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.
The Eclipse 550 offers features and technologies that other light jets can only dream about. Features that enhance efficiency in order to lower the cost of ownership. The Eclipse 550 also offers the most robust set of safety features available in the light jet market, and all in the only twin-engine jet available for under $3MM.

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.
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.
