Eclipse announces enhanced vision option in new jet

06-11-2012

New Eclipse 550 very light jets that go into production next year will have an option for an infrared camera that will provide pilots with a better view of the ground and obstacles through fog. The Lexavia system uses a camera with a shell that protrudes less than two inches upward between the nosecone and windscreen. Video will display on the cockpit’s multifunction display. The new feature is one of several the company has announced recently as it reveals more details about the new version of the jet. Other features include an improved integrated flight deck, autothrolles and synthetic vision.
