Eclipse Aerospace has named VNE Jet of Henderson, Nev., the exclusive U.S. Southwest region factory-authorized gold service center for the Eclipse 500. A spokesman for Eclipse told AIN, “VNE’s region includes Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma and all of West Texas, including Dallas.” The designation allows VNE Jet to provide maintenance services, parts distribution, airframe, engine and avionics inspections, AOG services, support services and parts distribution for qualified Eclipse mechanics and repair stations throughout the Southwest region. The Henderson location also allows the mobile repair team to serve the western U.S. within hours of an AOG call. Led by Scott Bullock, VNE Jet’s president, the company is staffed primarily by former Eclipse Aviation employees and has been providing aircraft maintenance services for EA-500 owners since Eclipse Aviation entered Chapter 7 bankruptcy. “We are pleased to be selected,” Bullock said. “Our training, dedication and years of experience with the Eclipse 500 and its engines and systems are some of the reasons we are providing services in support of the manufacturer.”
