Flight has been all over Eclipse this past week. I interviewed CEO Vern Raburn about the start-up company’s very public production ramp-up problems (watch for the feature in Flight International). My colleague John Croft flew back from NBAA in Atlanta in an Eclipse 500, and still has the silly grin on his face – you can read all about it on John’s blog, As the Cro Flies.
And Flight’s roving reporter Jeff Decker was in Tallahassee, Florida for the much-anticipated launch of DayJet’s air-taxi service using Eclipse VLJs. I wish DayJet CEO Ed Iacobucci the very best of luck with his pioneering venture, but I can’t resist posting these pictures taken by Jeff at the inaugural flight event in Tallahasse. Did someone say Florida is the Sunshine State?
