The Eclipse 550 is a development version of the Eclipse 500 initially built by Eclipse Aerospace and now One Aviation of Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States. Like the 500, the 550 is a low-wing, six seats, twin-engine jet-powered aircraft. The Eclipse 550 is certified for single-pilot operation.

Eclipse Aerospace’s Eclipse 550 twin-engine jet is classified as a very light jet. Very Light Jets (VLJs) are small light aircraft that typically hold a small group of 4 or 5 passengers comfortably. The very light jets are a fairly new category of aircraft and thus are equipped with the very latest in jet engine technology which delivers the speed, quality, and fuel efficiency that allow for a more cost-effective means of private jet travel. Not only is the Eclipse a practical and efficient option for private flyers, but it is also very highly regarded in its class and leads the competition in both range and fuel economy.

According to Eclipse 550, “Eclipse Aerospace has done something that no other aircraft manufacturer has ever done: we built a twin-engine jet that is affordable, easy to own, easy to operate, and offers safety features and performance capabilities previously found only in military and commercial aircraft.”
