Eclipse 500

The Eclipse 500 (officially Eclipse Aerospace EA500) stands as a compact six-seat business jet, initially crafted by Eclipse Aviation and subsequently enhanced and manufactured by Eclipse Aerospace. The foundational concept for this aircraft emerged from the Williams V-Jet II, originally intended to serve as a demonstrator for the FJX-2 turbofan engine. Although Williams opted against producing the initial aircraft, Eclipse Aviation, founded in 1998, recognized the demonstrator’s substantial appeal and proceeded to advance the V-Jet II project. Rebranded as the EA500, the aircraft retained the demonstrator’s airframe while incorporating innovative manufacturing techniques for its structure. In 2004, the EA500 took its inaugural flight, propelled by two lightweight Pratt & Whitney Canada PW610F turbofan engines housed in aft fuselage-mounted nacelles. The Eclipse 500 was officially introduced in 2006, marking the inception of a novel category of very light jets.
