This airplane was a joke from the start. There is no posible way to build a private jet for under 1 million dollars. Look at the thrust rating. 700 pounds each side for a total of 1400 pounds. Ask any aeronautical enginneer and he will tell you you cannot achieve decent climb, useful load, service ceiling, or any decent speed on this amount of thrust. Compare it to the Cessna Mustang. It is doable. The Mustang has more than 1400 pounds a side and makes similiar peformance claims. Has Eclipse found some sort of Black Magic that has allowed it to cheat the laws of Physics?? The answer is a resounding NO!!!! Now its price and payload figures are not possible because they found it needs bigger engines. This decreses range and increses price. The dream is over and Eclipse will go down and take some of GA's reputation as a solid invesment with it. Buy a Cessna and be happy!!!
