Eclipse 400 Front View - Very Light Jet

Eclipse Aviation announced a few weeks ago that it will start taking orders for the Eclipse 400 single-engine jet, a production version of the Eclipse Concept Jet. Eclipse also claims that the new 400 model will be world’s most fuel-efficient jet aircraft with less than one pound of fuel per nautical mile consumed at 330 knots.

At current economics, it is priced at $1.35 million and the production version is expected to start deliveries at the first quarter of 2011.

The Eclipse 400 seats four and can cruise at 41,000 feet. The Pratt & Whitney Canada PW615F engine is said to produce exceptional thrust and great fuel economy.
