The FAA certified Innovative Solutions & Support Synthetic Vision installation and Autothrottle Upgrade for the Eclipse Jet, applicable to aircraft with software versions 2.7.8 and 2.7.10.  This installation marks IS&S's first upgrade directly to Eclipse owners and involves substantial pre-orders.  Eclipse owners now have the benefit of a significant avionics equipment upgrade and ongoing product support directly from their partnership with IS&S. 

“IS&S is excited to support the Eclipse Owners and Operators with this Upgrade and greatly appreciates their continued enthusiasm and input”, Tom Grunbeck, IS&S Director of Autothrottle Programs commented.

In developing this Eclipse upgrade, IS&S prioritized the operational and safety advantages of:

  • Upgrading the Primary flight displays with SVS
  • Enabling autothrottle operation down to approach minimums with improvements in the shutoff switch now being within the pilot's direct control, instead of on the landing gear select switch 
  • Software upgrades that provide improved presentation of performance and situational data displayed on cockpit instruments, as well as on the pilot’s EFB.  They include: Map airspace labeling upgrade, ethernet initialization upgrade, EFB rendering performance upgrade, Fly By/Fly Over logic upgrade, 2.7.8 software upgrade to 2.7.10.

Headquartered in Exton, Pa., Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. (www.innovative-ss.com) is a systems integrator that designs and manufactures flight guidance and cockpit display systems for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM’s) and retrofit applications.  The company supplies integrated Flight Management Systems (FMS), autothrottles and advanced GPS receivers for precision low carbon footprint navigation.
