Aero-News Quote of the Day
"We are on the verge of achieving FAA certification, and
are thrilled to be gearing up to begin delivering airplanes to our
customers... While the majority of our certification program has
been completed, we have faced ongoing supplier delays to obtain
TSOs for their systems that have pushed back our projected late
June certification by another several weeks. Although this is
frustrating to the customers that are so eager to receive this
aircraft - and the Eclipse team members who have been working night
and day to avoid this delay - we are very proud that the Eclipse
500 will be the first VLJ to be certified by the FAA"
