This little model will mean aircraft washing businesses may have to adjust their prices down a little or may just make a hefty profit as it can be washed in less than 30 minutes. Meanwhile in Biz Jet markets we are seeing many changes;

And also NASA decides it cannot do without the idea of fractional jet costs to share their resources and save money, it is a deal they cannot pass up as the NASA we use to know is purely business and watching it's costs these days;

Look at the new Eclipse 500 a little six seater, 2300 pre-orders, wow. That is a lot of jets to wash. As Airlines get hammered it appears there is a whole new market, which has been given a boost. Eclipse Order Book Tops 2,000. With 1,357 pre-paid no refund Orders and 715 Options; $65 million Deposited. Indeed this is an interesting recent press release as well:

The Eclipse 500 is a six-person jet aircraft that sells for $837,500 (in June 2000 dollars). At this price, it costs approximately a quarter of today's small jet aircraft. The Eclipse 500 flies at 355 knots, and the company says it will travel 1300 nautical miles (about the distance between Boston and Miami) at a cost of approximately 56 cents a mile to operate. This cost to operate is nil considering the excellent performance. Production Rates are a little bit of a snag, I would say with all these orders, surely they will be quite busy for sometime to come. Eclipse Aviation expects to deliver approximately 140 aircraft in 2004, 500 aircraft in 2005, and 900 aircraft in 2006. At its full production rate, which the company expects to reach in 2007, Eclipse will be able to manufacture an estimated 1,500 aircraft per year. Check out there web site for specs;

Very cool, of course we are also interested in a mini version composite plane for sporting around and mock bombing runs in the desert? The little Viper Jet is what we really like.
