    The Eclipse 500 very light jet introduced a radically new category called the Very Light Jets (VLJ). The twin-turbofan Private Jet nicely combines reliability, fuel efficiency, and simplicity in a sleek and stylish casing.

    This is a dramatic departure from today's commercial airline system, which forces 70 percent of all air travelers to pass through 29 increasingly crowded "hub" airports.

    The airplane itself is a remarkable thing. It's small, which is the whole idea behind the model.

    The Eclipse 500 body is just as important to its competitive advantage as its performance.
