Eclipse Aerospace announced that the FAA has issued a supplemental type certificate (STC) authorizing the installation of an integrated flight management system (IFMS) for the Eclipse EA500 very light twinjet, dubbed the Avio IFMS.
The new Avio IFMS was developed by Innovative Solutions and Support (IS&S), and provides a number of navigation capabilities. The Avio IFMS enables automatic flight control of coupled LPV approaches, airway navigation, required navigation performance procedures, holding patterns and procedure turns, parallel offsets, and other navigation functions.
“We at Eclipse Aerospace are very proud to be able to now offer a fully integrated FMS system not only for our factory sold Total Eclipse aircraft but also as added functionality for our existing fleet,” said 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.”
