Eclipse 'Special Edition' Twin-Engine Jet Announced by ONE Aviation
Albuquerque, NM — June 29, 2015 — ONE Aviation is pleased to announce the Eclipse Special Edition (SE) twin-engine jet. The Eclipse SE is a factory-renewed Eclipse 500 which has been substantially upgraded and reconfigured to include nearly all new features introduced on the new Eclipse 550, including a Dual Avio Integrated Flight Management System (IFMS), Anti-skid Brake System, a newly designed pilot-side Standby Display Unit, PPG glass windshields, new premium interior, and deluxe two-tone paint scheme.
Most notable is that the Eclipse SE comes with a comprehensive 3-year Factory Warranty and 3-year Eclipse Advantage maintenance program, which covers all required, scheduled inspections including the 300 hour, 24 month inspection as well as lesser inspections such as battery cap checks, fire extinguisher inspections, and more.
"The Eclipse SE is much more than an upgraded Eclipse 500, it is a factory supported, like-new aircraft for a very reasonable price," said Alan Klapmeier, ONE Aviation's CEO. "Our decision to provide the SE with a 3-year Warranty and 3-year Maintenance Plan further demonstrates our goal of simplifying aircraft ownership and providing clarity, convenience, and peace of mind for our customers who own and operate an Eclipse twin-engine jet," said Klapmeier.
The Eclipse SE is delivered with all mandatory and recommended Service Bulletins completed, and a P&WC Gold ESP engine plan paid current through the date of delivery. Also included in aircraft cost is one initial type rating and access to all of the optional features and equipment that are available on an Eclipse 550, including Auto-Throttles, TAWS, TAS, and more.
With the introduction of the Eclipse SE, ONE Aviation will discontinue the Total Eclipse series of aircraft.
"There are so many different configurations, options and completion levels in the TE line that it is confusing for potential customers when evaluating the value of a TE," stated Ken Ross. President of One Aviation. "In keeping with our goal to make purchasing and owning an Eclipse simple and transparent, we have introduced the Eclipse SE with the same standard features and available options as the new Eclipse 550. This makes the buying decision much easier for potential customers. With a base price of just over $2MM — about the same as a turbo-prop — the Eclipse SE is a compelling offer," said Ross.
The Eclipse SE has an industry leading safety record, twin-engine reliability, and lowest cost per mile to own / operate, and yet maintains a base price of only $2.195MM.
