Aerocor, an aircraft broker based in Los Angeles, has announced it is now offering a certified pre-owned option for the Eclipse 500 and 550 jets. Aircraft sold as “certified pre-owned” must have no damage history and will include fresh inspections along with first-year scheduled maintenance and operational support, the company says. Aerocor says each jet will be flight-tested, and will be delivered with all mandatory service bulletins, critical system updates, a 24-month inspection and all maintenance items due within the first 12 months or 300 flight hours of ownership completed.
The nomination periods are now open for two prestigious aviation awards, the Katherine Wright Trophy and the FAI Awards, the National Aeronautic Association said this week. The Wright trophy, established in 1981 by the Gates Learjet Corp., is awarded annually "to an individual who has contributed to the success of others, or made a personal contribution to the advancement of the art, sport, and science of aviation and space flight over an extended period of time."
