Direct changes to the design of the Eclipse 550 aircraft compared to the base model has not undergone, however, the model has become more technically advanced and equipped with modern avionics. Production of the Eclipse 550 aircraft began in the middle of the 2013 of the year, and at the beginning of 2014, there were already 10 units produced in the world, which were mostly used by private owners.

The power plant of the American Eclipse 550 aircraft is represented by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW610F turbofan engines, which allow the development of thrust in 8 kN when working together, which is enough for air travel at speeds up to 694 km / h (maximum flight speed), as well as for distances to 2084 km with transportation on your board to 6 people (including one pilot). Due to the operation of these low-power engines, fuel consumption is minimal, which makes the operation of the Eclipse 550 aircraft quite economical, and in addition, the aircraft engines used are very simple and inexpensive to maintain.

The Eclipse 550 aircraft is fairly easily controlled, and at the same time, it is quite maneuverable, which ensures quite high popularity among customers - by the end of 2015, the American aircraft manufacturers from Eclipse Aerospace started producing 40 aircraft per year, at an average cost of one unit in 3 million dollars.

Eclipse 550 perfectly as a means of business aviation as able to travel long distances, providing passengers comfortable air travel.
