EAI is proud to announce receipt of Supplemental Type Certification for both the Auto Throttle and Anti-Skid Brake (ASB) systems for the Eclipse 550. The Auto Throttle is a first for FAR Part 23 aircraft. The lightweight ASB system is the only ASB in general aviation that does not require a complex aircraft hydraulic system, thereby reducing maintenance and allowing for simple operation with very few components.
EAI is proud to announce that the first production Eclipse 550 twin-engine jet will be on display at the 2013 National Business Aviation Association Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada from October 22-24, 2013 in booth C10844. The Eclipse 550 builds upon a proven and reliable airframe, adding an increased range of safety and sophistication to the cockpit and improved comfort to the cabin.
