Innovative Solutions & Support And Eclipse Aerospace Announce Production Order For Eclipse 550 Flightdeck

NBAA 2012 Annual Meeting and Convention — Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. (NASDAQ:ISSC) and Eclipse Aerospace, Inc. announced today that a production order has been placed for an initial fifty ship sets of a three hundred ship set contract for the IS&S advanced avionics suite for the production model Eclipse 550. IS&S is the supplier of Primary Flight and Multi-Function Displays, and the Integrated Flight Management (IFMS) System for the Eclipse Jet. The advanced avionics suite will include Dual Flight Management systems, Auto Throttles, Synthetic Vision, integrated TAWS and Enhanced Vision (EVS).

The Eclipse 550 is a technologically advanced, twin-engine jet aircraft with a design that utilizes the same airframe and power plant as the popular EA500 model, but includes significant innovations in most aircraft systems to improve overall operations, direct operating costs, comfort and performance.

Innovative Solutions and Support’s President Shahram Askarpour stated, “We congratulate Eclipse Aerospace on the start of their 550 production line, and we are pleased to partner with Eclipse Aerospace for the supply of the cockpit avionics for the 550 and 500. The Avio IFMS avionics suite is one of the most advanced cockpits available on any aircraft. The eleven microprocessors in the IS&S displays control all major aircraft systems including Electronic Circuit Breakers, Radios, Transponders and Radars. FMS precision navigation, coupled auto-throttle, full VNAV, and Synthetic Vision give the Eclipse Twin-Engine Jet unrivaled performance. The aircraft specific synoptic pages provide for a graphical presentation and control of all major subsystems including calculations for Take-Off / Landing performance, and weight and balance.”

“The new Eclipse 550 Avio IFMS panel drastically decreases a pilot’s workload during flight, giving Eclipse pilots more time to make critical decisions,” said Mason Holland, Eclipse CEO. “The seamless integration of the Eclipse 550 panels with our aircraft computer systems is unparalleled in the industry.”
