The Eclipse 550: Incredibly Efficient. Remarkably Easy to Fly.

Loading...

Max Cruise: 375 kts

The Eclipse Jet can maintain a maximum cruise speed of 375 ktas (430 mph). The two P&WC 610F engines on the Eclipse Jet each produce 900 lbs of thrust (1,800 lbs total) on a jet whose maximum takeoff weight is 6,000 lbs. This incredible power coupled with the lightweight airframe of the Eclipse Jet produces this exceptional capacity for speed.

Range: 1,125 nm

Eclipse Jet Range: Kansas City to Quebec

70% of all GA flights are fewer than 750 nm and carry three or fewer passengers (according to the NBAA and GAMA), a mission profile that suits the Eclipse Jet perfectly. Rather than wasting money flying empty seats from one meeting to the next, the Eclipse Jet maximizes dollars spent on corporate travel.

Max Altitude: 41,000 ft

Flying your jet at 41,000 ft keeps you above the weather: above clouds, rain, icing and other detriments to safety and efficiency while flying. Increased altitude will increase the range of the aircraft. Increased range is not just a minor advantage: the fuel efficiency at 41,000 ft is almost 10 gal/hr better than at 37,000ft!

Fuel Burn: 48-59 gal/hr

The Eclipse Jet is the most fuel-efficient twin-engine jet on the planet, consuming a mere 48-59 gallons of fuel per hour in flight while at cruise. This amazing performance indicator means that you can fly 430 mph at only twice the fuel burn as a large SUV traveling on the interstate . The next lowest competing jet's fuel burn is 75-91 gallons per hour.

Fly away in the only twin-engine jet under $3MM

OWN IT: The Eclipse 550 twin-engine jet is currently delivering with a base price of $2,895,000. To hold a production position, customers can open a deposit position account with only $25,000.

FLY IT: Because the Eclipse 550 is the most fuel-efficient twin-engine jet on the planet, the operating costs are comparable to flying a high performance piston. Eclipse 550 Operating Costs: $1.76 /nm on a 1,000 nm mission.

Fly Safe. Fly Fast. Fly an Eclipse 550 Jet.

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.

Engines

Eclipse 550 PWC Engines

The Pratt & Whitney PW610F turbofan engine, specially designed for point-to-point travel in a new generation of light and very light jets, offers outstanding performance together with PWC's trademark dependability. Compact and lightweight, the PW610F is built with a simplified design that uses fewer parts than a conventional turbofan, making it easy and economical to maintain.Capable of delivering 900 pounds of take-off thrust, the PW610F incorporates the latest technology to deliver highly fuel-efficient power with low carbon emissions. It also comes equipped with dual-channel full-authority digital engine control (FADEC) which translates into reduced pilot workload.
