EASA has issued a type certificate for the Eclipse 550 business jet. The announcement was made during the NBAA conference in Las Vegas.

“This is a significant event for ONE Aviation and the global future of the Eclipse.”

Alan Klapmeier, CEO of ONE Aviation said: “This is a significant event for ONE Aviation and the global future of the Eclipse. The Eclipse perfectly fits the typical European mission profile, one that involves carrying three or four passengers a thousand nautical miles.”

ONE Aviation currently has two European distributors who have been waiting for this development, Aeris Aviation, located at Guernsey Airport, Guernsey, and Jetlounge in Schönhagen, Germany and Eelde, The Netherlands.

“We are thrilled to have EASA certification in place. “

David Hayman, CEO of Aeris Aviation added: “We are thrilled to have EASA certification in place. This now opens the EU OPS market [European equivalent of Part 135] for the Eclipse, allowing us to sell into charter operations and air taxi services which we believe will be a great fit for the this aircraft.”

Modifications on the aircraft in order to comply with EASA regulations are minimal and can be completed in less than a day.
