Total Eclipse receives UAE type certificate
Eclipse Aerospace announces orders for five Total Eclipses in the UAE
Eclipse Aerospace announced the UAE has
awarded a type certificate to the Total Eclipse. Eclipse Aerospace has already
secured commitments and contracts for five Total Eclipse aircraft to customers
who will register their aircraft in the UAE.
The company has been working very closely with
the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) and last month received
validation of the United States Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) Eclipse Jet Type
“We have enjoyed our technical co-operation
between our team of specialists and those at the GCAA,” states Ken Ross, president
of global services at Eclipse Aerospace. “We have received overwhelming support
and excitement from the UAE Aviation community.”
Eclipse Aerospace also offers the Eclipse
550, a new production version of the Total Eclipse. Eclipse Aerospace announced
Eclipse 550 Jet last month at the NBAA convention in Las Vegas. The Eclipse 550 is scheduled for
first deliveries in 2013. It will
retain the same fuel-efficient airframe and engines as the Total Eclipse.
The Total Eclipse is being displayed at the Dubai
Air Show through the company’s regional distributor EA Aerospace.
