AVIO INTEGRATED FLIGHT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
YOUR VIRTUAL COCKPIT
The Dual Avio Integrated Flight Management System (IFMS) on the Eclipse 550 is an incredibly advanced system whose purpose is simple: make piloting the Eclipse Jet safe and easy. By reducing the number of switches and dials in the cockpit and creating an easy to use synoptic page for each aircraft system, the design team at Eclipse has simplified the act of flying by producing pilot controls that are more intuitive.
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 avionics system in the Eclipse 550, designed to be completely integrated, gives the pilot the ability to move between graphical systems interfaces quickly, removing unneccessary 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), providing the pilot a complete picture of the operations and performance of that system, all in one location.
At Eclipse, we take particular pride in the safety record of our fleet. We designed the Eclipse Jet to be flown single pilot, adding safety features that other light jets can only dream about — features that heighten awareness of weather, traffic and other obstacles in flight. We have streamlined control of the Eclipse Jet to make piloting your own jet a less formidable task. Simply put: we built the Eclipse 550 to be safe and easy to fly.
The majority of pilot / owners fly the aircraft as a single pilot, having complete confidence in the capabilities of the Avio system to act as their virtual copilot. The Eclipse avionics system features a redundant Integrated Flight Management System, Class 3 E-charts, FADEC engine control, and XM Satellite Weather. The high resolution MFD / PFD displays control all of the major aircraft systems. Dual WAAS / SBAS beta-3 GPS receivers from IS&S are utilized for precise navigation. With 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 Flight Management System available in a light jet.
