Never Say Die... The Eclipse 500 keeps trucking toward a solid
comeback with the news that the bird will shortly be back to
flitting around at FL410. Eclipse Aerospace has confirmed the
completion of an enhanced windshield application for the
dissipation of precipitation static on windshields, and aircraft
design changes for operation up to 41,000 feet. EAI committed to
bring these upgrades to market for existing Eclipse aircraft owners
after EAI acquired the assets of the previous company.
Gulfstream Aerospace recognized the 25th anniversary of the
first flight of the Gulfstream IV on Sunday. "The GIV was the
aircraft that launched a thousand Gulfstream aircraft," said Joe
Lombardo, president, Gulfstream.
