Eclipse Aerospace Total Eclipse 500

    The original Eclipse Aviation company spent 1.4 billion dollars to develop the light twin-engine jet, but went bankrupt in the process. The new owner, Eclipse Aerospace, has revived the model by providing service and support. It has bought back lightly used jets that had been delivered with incomplete systems, refurbished and upgraded them, and placed them back on the market as the Total Eclipse 500 with a one-year factory warranty. The Albuquerque, New Mexico, company is poised and ready to restart production as soon as demand justifies it.
