Home / Aircraft Guide / Eclipse 500

The Eclipse 500 is a twin-turbofan aircraft powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW610F-A engines. Eclipse 500 became the first of a new class of Very Light Jet when it was delivered in late 2006. It is a five- to six-place, low-wing, T-tail aircraft using conventional aircraft semi-monocoque structural elements joined together using both friction stir welding and mechanical fasteners. The Eclipse 500 is an ‘all electric’ aircraft and uses conventional mechanical flight controls that do not require hydraulics, except for the master brake cylinders.
