Surprise Agreement Could Be Start Of BizJet Powerhouse Partnership
Uh... wow. That's the collective reaction we saw and experienced as Eclipse' Mason Holland stood up in front of god and everybody and announced that mighty Sikorsky Aircraft was buying into little ol' Eclipse. This is more than a fortuitous big company/little company pairing... as Eclipse, a company with untold potential in an increasingly cost-conscious industry, brings Sikorsky on board -- a company that knows how to tap potential like few others in the history of the Aerospace world. Yup... this is a very big deal.
The deal is intriguing... and Holland describes it as an 'agreement in principle... in which Sikorsky will make an investment in Eclipse Aerospace Inc.'
“We are elated about this potential new venture with Sikorsky Aircraft and the phenomenal reach we can extend to Eclipse Jet owners by access to the global service, support and supply chain network of Sikorsky,” stated Mason Holland, Chairman and CEO of Eclipse Aerospace, Inc. “With the closing of this agreement we would have it all -- a phenomenal fuel efficient twin-engine jet, an enthusiastic customer base and a fantastic support staff, all coupled with the depth and strength of a sound and experienced partner, Sikorsky Aircraft!”
