They're Off And Running: Eclipse Delivers First Three Planes To DayJet

Jet Service Will Begin Ops In Q2 2007

This is no April Fools story, folks -- Eclipse Aviation announced Saturday the delivery of three Eclipse 500 aircraft to DayJet at the Eclipse headquarters in Albuquerque, NM.

DayJet is Eclipse Aviation's largest customer, with firm orders for 239 Eclipse 500s and options for an additional 70 aircraft over the next two years. The company -- which is the first commercial jet service to take delivery of a VLJ -- will offer point-to-point "Per-Seat, On-Demand" services to regional communities using the Eclipse 500.

"As our population and business centers become more and more dispersed, air travel is more critical than ever to the health and growth of our regional communities and businesses," said Vern Raburn, president and CEO of Eclipse Aviation (shown below with Ed and Nancy Iacobucci). "We are proud to be playing a role in expanding the future of air transportation by delivering the Eclipse 500, the first of a new generation of VLJs that can quickly move people from point to point across our nation. It is exciting to be a partner with DayJet as they take the next step in this journey."

The aircraft delivered Saturday will be used to train pilots at Eclipse's facilities in Albuquerque. DayJet will put its fleet of Eclipse 500s into commercial operation in the second quarter of this year.

"Today is a major milestone for DayJet, as we begin to take delivery of our Eclipse 500 jets," said Ed Iacobucci, president and CEO of DayJet. "Like many great innovations in history, there is a confluence of hardware and software advances that together, promise radical change and benefit to thousands of regional business travelers."
