Eclipse Aviation announced last month that it received certification from India and Australia for the Eclipse 500 very light jet. These certifications, which were issued on the basis of bilateral agreements between the FAA and the individual countries, allow customers to register and operate their Eclipse 500 jets in India and Australia. Meanwhile, an Eclipse spokesman recently told AIN that EASA certification of the Eclipse 500 is expected next month.
