Eclipse Aerospace announces Brazilian type certification validation

Eclipse Aerospace, Inc. is pleased to announce the Brazilian Type Certificate Validation of the Total Eclipse Twin-Engine Jet. Over the last fifteen months EAI worked in cooperative partnership with the Brazilian Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil (ANAC) to certify the EA500 and the Eclipse Avio Integrated Flight Management System.

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.

"We are extremely proud of the speed with which our Engineering Team and International Certification Group moved through the validation process," stated Ken Ross, President, Global Services. "We have received tremendous interest and excitement from the Corporate and Private aviation community and look forward to the introduction of the EA500 to Brazil," stated Ross.

Eclipse Aerospace also offers the Eclipse 550, a new production version of the Total Eclipse. The Eclipse 550 is scheduled for first deliveries in mid 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 Eclipse Jet is on display at the Eclipse/Sikorsky Booth #381 all week at AirVenture.
