Eclipse takes the Swift secret route to six month Concept Jet completion

In total secrecy, high performance racing car specialist Swift Engineering helped build the Eclipse Concept Jet (ECJ) in just six months. "The result is a very innovative idea for an aircraft," says Eclipse Aviation ceo Vern Raburn.

Eclipse is seeking customer feedback on the ECJ which remains a concept aircraft. "We haven't decided to manufacture it; we are conducting research to see if this is a market we want to get into," says Andrew Broom, public relations director. "We are talking to potential customers about it. We are not taking deposits and we are not securing positions. The results of the research will stand us in good stead for future development whatever decision we come to on the ECJ."
