Dubai,UAE, November 14, 2011 – Eclipse Aerospace, Inc. is pleased to announce the UAE Type Certificate Validation of the Total Eclipse Twin-Engine Jet. Making its first appearance at the 2011 Dubai Airport Expo and Airshow, Eclipse Aerospace has already secured commitments and contracts for 5 Total Eclipse aircraft to customers who will register their aircraft in the UAE.
Eclipse has been working very closely with the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) and last month received validation of the United States Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) Eclipse Jet Type Certificate.
“We have enjoyed our technical co-operation between our team of specialists and the those at the GCAA,” states Ken Ross, President of Global Services at Eclipse Aerospace. “We have received overwhelming support and excitement from the UAE Aviation community.”
Eclipse Aerospace currently offers the Total Eclipse Twin-Engine Jet configured with the all-new Avio Integrated Flight Management System (IFMS) and certified for flight into known icing (FIKI). The Total Eclipse Jet also comes complete with a “tip-to-tail” factory warranty, new paint, and a new interior. Traveling at speeds in excess of 430 MPH (375 ktas) at altitudes up to 41,000 feet, this light jet consumes only 59 gallons of fuel an hour in cruise, making it the most fuel-efficient twin-engine jet on the planet.
Eclipse Aerospace also offers the Eclipse 550, a new production version of the Total Eclipse. Eclipse Aerospace announced Eclipse 550 Jet last month at the NBAA event in Las Vegas. The Eclipse 550 is scheduled for first deliveries in 2013 and will come with state-of-the-art avionics. It will retain the same fuel-efficient airframe and engines as the Total Eclipse, and remain the most economical twin-engine jet in the world.
The Total Eclipse is on display all week at the Dubai Airshow through our regional distributor EA Aerospace. Demonstration flights are available. For more information about the Eclipse twin-engine jet, please contact Eclipse Aerospace directly, or go online to www.ECLIPSE.aero.
