Eclipse Aerospace (Booth No. C10844) ceremonially delivered the first Eclipse 550 yesterday at NBAA 2013, marking the first aircraft to come off its revived production line since its predecessor company filed for bankruptcy and shut down in 2007. The new twinjet builds upon the “proven and reliable” Eclipse 500, adding more range, upgraded avionics and improved cabin comfort.
Eclipse Aerospace has received a United Arab Emirates type certificate for its Total Eclipse twin-engine light jet. The approval is based on its existing U.S. certification. The company has secured commitments and contracts for five Total Eclipse aircraft from customers who will register their aircraft in the UAE.
