Eclipse Aerospace, Inc. (EAI) FIKI/ Avio IFMS Differences Training is required for those pilots intending to fly as PIC in Eclipse Jet aircraft that have been modified with Flight Into Known Icing (FIKI) and the Integrated Flight Management System (IFMS).


The only requisite for this training is a basic understanding of GPS WAAS concepts and capabilities, to include the various types of instrument approaches capable of being flown.

Differences Course

This 2-day course is organized into three components: classroom training, cockpit procedures training, and flight training. Ground training will describe and explain the systems that are new to the FIKI / Avio IFMS pilot. Cockpit procedures training (CPT) will provide demonstration and practice on new systems and their operation. Finally, the flight training component will allow the pilot to first practice flight operations with new systems, and then demonstrate proficiency to ATP standards.
