Eclipse Aerospace has received a United Arab Emirates type certificate for its Total Eclipse twin-engine light jet. The approval is based on its existing U.S. certification. The company has secured commitments and contracts for five Total Eclipse aircraft from customers who will register their aircraft in the UAE.
An example of the Total Eclipse is being shown on the Dubai Air Show static display by the aircraft’s Middle East distributor, Turkey-based EA Aerospace. Demonstration flights are on offer.
A new version of the aircraft, the Eclipse 550, is currently in development, for delivery from 2013.
