Eclipse Sales Take Off at EAA AirVenture 2011

EAA AIRVENTURE, OSHKOSH, WI, JULY 29, 2011 – Eclipse Aerospace, Inc. announced today the sale of five Total Eclipse Twin-Engine Jet Aircraft during the 2011 EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, WI. All five of these Total Eclipse Jets will be delivered to individual customers within 45 days.

“Enthusiasm is really building for our Eclipse Jet. With the return of the 41,000 foot certified service ceiling, interest here at AirVenture has really been overwhelming,” stated Mason Holland, Chairman and CEO of Eclipse Aerospace.

Eclipse Aerospace will continue to deliver the limited edition Total Eclipse aircraft at a scheduled pace throughout the balance of this year. Aircraft delivery times from date of order are currently 45-60 days.

Eclipse Aerospace currently offers the Total Eclipse Twin-Engine Jet configured with the industry leading 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 knots) at altitudes up to 41,000 feet, this light jet consumes only 60 gallons of fuel an hour in cruise, making it the most fuel-efficient twin-engine jet on the planet.

“Earlier this week, we announced that Eclipse is adding 75 new staff positions in all phases of the organization. Eclipse is giving a strong signal to the aviation markets that Eclipse is building momentum and continues to accelerate our business plan,” says Holland.

The Total Eclipse is on display all week at Oshkosh AirVenture for viewing and demonstration flights. Eclipse is located on the AirVenture field at Chalet 5 off Whittman Road near the flightline.
