TO RESUME PRODUCTION
Eclipse Aerospace says it's now taking
orders for a new aircraft that will be based on the Eclipse 500 but
offer some modern improvements. In a podcast
interview at NBAA 2011 in Las Vegas, Eclipse President Mason Holland
said the company hopes for first deliveries of the new Eclipse 550 in
2013 and the aircraft that's planned will set the standard for the tiny
jet market. The 550 will boast an improved avionics package that will
include auto throttles, synthetic vision, enhanced vision and a host of
standard and optional improvements that will make it the most advanced
light jet available. The new aircraft will sell for $2.695 million. The
return to production has been made possible in large part through the
partnership with Sikorsky Aircraft announced at last year's NBAA
convention which will have a key role in the resumption of production.

SECOND NEW NBAA AIRPLANE: LATITUDE
Cessna announced a second
new design at NBAA 2011 in Las Vegas on Monday with a midsize bizjet
that's between the XLS and Sovereign in size but different from both in
terms of features. The Latitude was designed from the cabin out. It's
large for its sector, offering a flat-floor standup (six foot)
arrangement with seating for up to eight. It's 77 inches wide, the
widest Cessna has ever built. It also has a full stand-up lav with sink
and closet. "It's big enough to get changed in," said Cindy Halsey, who
designed the cabin features. The aricraft has a 2,000 nm range and full
fuel payload of 1,000 lbs. First flight will be in 2014 and
certification is planned for 2015. Price is $14.9 million.
There's Nothing Light About
Meet the latest and greatest member of the world's most successful
family of light jets, the Citation CJ4
. It delivers more
speed and greater range while retaining the pilot-friendly and
single-pilot-certified operations of the CJ family. The CJ4's
cabin is larger, more comfortable, and outfitted with new entertainment
and communication systems. All this equals an aircraft that is flexible
enough to meet the requirements of many mid-sized aircraft at light jet
costs, plus the service reputation of Cessna to back up your decision.
It's what every light jet aspires to be.
