Eclipse Receives STC For Avio IFMS

Fully Integrated Flight Management System Available As An Option For All Eclipse Jets

The FAA has issued an STC to Eclipse Aerospace for an Integrated Flight Management System (IFMS) for the Eclipse Twin-Engine Jet. The IFMS system was developed by Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. specifically for integration in the advanced cockpit of the Eclipse Twin-Engine Jet. Eclipse Aerospace, located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, provides engineering, service, and support for the fleet of 260 Eclipse twin-engine jets.

The Avio IFMS provides dynamically calculated top of decent guidance, coupled LPV approach, Airway / Victor route navigation, RNP (Auto/Manual), holding patterns and procedure turns, parallel offsets, storage for ninety-nine flight plans, user defined waypoints, nearest airports and navigation aids, and on-route information. The system includes enhanced graphics such as integrated on-route e-charts, e-charts overlaid on the moving map, freezing levels, winds aloft, stormscope display, progressive zooming, and Canadian NexRad/Metars and TAFs.

Unlike non-integrated cockpits, the Eclipse Jet takes full advantage of EFIS and FMS avionics functions by tightly integrating data provided from these systems with data provided by the Eclipse on board data computer systems. It is with this integration that the Eclipse Jet provides pilots with instant data and feedback on all operations of the aircraft in one location.

"We at Eclipse Aerospace are very proud to be able to ... offer a fully integrated FMS system not only for our factory sold Total Eclipse aircraft but also as additional functionality for our existing fleet," states Mason Holland CEO of Eclipse Aerospace. "Orders for Total Eclipse Jets complete with the new Avio IFMS are now being taken with delivery time averaging 60 days."
