Eclipse Adds Anti-Skid Brakes

 - October 1, 2012, 3:28 PM

Eclipse Aerospace announced last week that an anti-skid braking system will become an available option on new production Eclipse 550 jets and as a retrofit item to all existing aircraft. The new anti-skid system adds 17 pounds to the aircraft’s empty weight; the company says it will offer a weight-reduction package to help offset the new feature. On-board aircraft testing of the brake system is complete and full certification is expected within six months.
