Luxury Aircraft: Eclipse Aviation's Eclipse 500 is perhaps the most technologically advanced very light jet ever manufactured in the annals of aviation history. The firm's achievements in aviation have garnered worldwide attention and landed the Eclipse Aviation Corporation the highly coveted 2005 Robert J. Collier Trophy, which is administered by the National Aeronautic Association (NAA). Past recipients of the trophy include Orville Wright, Howard Hughes, Chuck Yeager, and the crew of Apollo 11 just to name a few of its illustrious winners over the past 95 years.

The incredible Eclipse 500 can carry up to six passengers and has a maximum speed of 375 knots and an astonishing range of 1,280 nautical miles .

The plane's elevation ceiling is a remarkable 41,000 feet, and it has access to over 10,000 U.S. airports. Priced at approximately $1.3 million, the Eclipse 500 is the least expensive twin-turbofan business jet in the world. It is Eclipse Aviation's founder, president and CEO Vern Raburn's goal to utilize the newfound technology, mass produce the Eclipse 500, and pass on the considerably lower maintenance and reparability costs to its owners.

Microsoft founder Bill Gates is an investor in the firm. The Eclipse 500 is available in the second quarter of 2006. The plain truth about this plane is that it is remarkable. It is a rare opportunity when you can drool and learn simultaneously. Elevate your aeronautical wherewithal at http://www.eclipseaviation.com.
