Eclipse Aviation® is the world’s leading very light jet (VLJ) manufacturer, producing innovative, affordable jets that are revolutionizing air transportation. Eclipse applies advances in technology, manufacturing processes and business practices to create high-performance aircraft that provide the lowest cost of jet ownership ever achieved.

Yatzer in this post features ECLIPSE 400 and ECLIPSE 500 super designed jets.

ECLIPSE 400
Makes all the other single-engine VLJs say,“No fair.”

The Earth slips away, almost without notice. At 13 minutes and 25,000 feet, you’re saying “hello” to your comfort zone and “goodbye” to turboprops and weather systems. Then a deep breath and it’s on with the climb.
The Eclipse 400 seats four and cruises at 41,000 feet, three miles above its closest competition. Its robust v-tail design provides superior handling and its gold standard Pratt & Whitney Canada PW615F engine produces exceptional thrust and envious fuel economy.
With an incredibly low fuel burn, the Eclipse 400 is the world’s most fuel-efficient jet aircraft, making it as easy on the wallet as it is on the eyes. Thanks to the high-performance Pratt & Whitney Canada PW615F turbofan, you don’t have to sacrifice speed for fuel in the process. At 330 knots, the Eclipse 400 uses less than one pound of fuel per nautical mile. So the only thing more enjoyable than getting there is getting there with fuel to burn.
Since its founding in 1998, Eclipse Aviation’s raison d'être has been about making an impact on the world, with one exception: the environment. To support the Eclipse 500, we developed PhostrEx™, a revolutionary Halon-free fire suppression system approved by the EPA and FAA. Along with an all-electric system originally developed for the Eclipse 500, it greatly reduces the amount of hazardous materials on the Eclipse 400.
The single Pratt & Whitney Canada turbofan also makes the Eclipse 400 equally reserved in fuel usage, noise, and emissions (NOx, CO2, and CO). Because for all the remote places the Eclipse 400 can take you, it’s good to know there’s nothing remotely pollutant about it.

ECLIPSE 500
Designed from the beginning as a jet. Which means it’s designed to perform.

Eclipse Aviation® designed the Eclipse 500 to be practical, from its cost of ownership to its excellent fuel mileage. To be safe and reliable, from its twin turbofan engines to its revolutionary fire-suppression system. But the Eclipse 500 does all that without sacrificing any of the thrills that come from flying in a jet. Because, let’s face it—no one buys a jet to not have fun in it.
The Eclipse 500® Very Light Jet incorporates the most technologically advanced systems available on any VLJ, from electronic circuit breakers and enhanced avionics functionality to dual-channel FADEC and autothrottle.
The Eclipse 500 will have a huge impact on your life. Not your planet.
The Eclipse 500 burns less fuel while covering a greater distance than any other twin jet or twin turboprop on the market. We’re proud to be leading the aviation industry in fuel efficiency. But our commitment to producing the most environmentally friendly aircraft possible doesn’t end there.
Not only does the Eclipse 500 significantly reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by reducing the amount of fuel burned, but it also emits far less engine smoke and CO and NOx, contributors to smog and ozone in the lower atmosphere. Every aircraft engine is assigned a regulatory smoke limit by the Civil Aviation Organization (CAO), and the percentage of the limit actually used is called the engine’s “smoke number.” The Eclipse 500’s smoke number is so small, it barely registers when measured. That’s a significant improvement over the aircraft’s closest rivals.
