Service Network To Expand
Eclipse also announced plans yesterday for the further development of its service and support network. In addition to previously announced Factory Service Centers now in the works for Albuquerque, N.M., Gainesville, Fla., and Albany, N.Y., four additional sites will open by the end of this year. The goal is that by 2008, an Eclipse Service Center will be within a 60-minute flight of virtually all customers in the lower 48 states. "Eclipse is dedicated to expanding access to private jet travel throughout the nation, particularly in areas that are currently under-served by commercial airlines," Raburn said. "It's critical that our Service Center network mirrors our overall strategy, and provides the highest levels of access, convenience and flexibility required by our rapidly growing and broadly distributed customer base."
