Until the Vision hits the market, the Eclipse 550 is your first choice for personal jetting. Eclipse brags that it's the only twin-engine jet for under $3 million, and the most fuel-efficient, too, consuming 59 gallons per hour. We're more interested in its 375 knots (430 mph) maximum cruising speed and max altitude of 41,000 feet, getting you from Memphis to Miami in under three hours, while coasting above the majority of commercial air traffic. Optional features include Enhanced and Synthetic Vision, offering fighter jet–style night vision and a heads-up display with integrated 3-D maps of approaching terrain. [eclipse.aero]
