Eclipse Aviation will partner with Global Aerospace to provide aircraft hull and liability insurance to owners of Eclipse 500s. “While it is too early to set premiums, Global expects insurance premiums for the new Eclipse 500 will be similar to those for existing aircraft,” said Eclipse officials. Albuquerque, N.M.-based Eclipse Aviation said the very light twinjet is “on track for certification in December 2003, with first customer deliveries scheduled for January 2004.” The airplane made its first and only flight to date on August 26.
