Eclipse Aviation has selected Vancouver-based Harbour Air to be the first Eclipse 500 authorized service center in North America. Harbour Air will provide MRO service for the aircraft in western Canada. The deal leaves open the opportunity for the company to expand into eastern Canada and Alaska. Harbour Air will also provide service to the Northwest U.S. until Eclipse establishes a service center network in the U.S.
