A group of Eclipse Aviation workers has launched a company called Eclipse 500 Services to provide maintenance for Eclipse 500 very light jets, according to its Web site.
“This site is set up so that we can bring all parts of the organization back together, and keep you in the air,” the site states.
According to the Web site, Eclipse 500 Services is offering maintenance, inspections, service bulletin compliance, EFIS 1.3 downloads, navigation databases and upgrades, including a “solution to retrofit the Garmin 400W navigator,” which provides GPS functionality, to the Eclipse 500 avionics suite.
The Web site says, “All of our maintenance will be completed at the Albuquerque International Airport (at this current time); other facilities nearby are possibilities as we secure our future. Eclipse Aviation may have left a little to be desired, but as we all strive to pick up the pieces from an unforeseen Chapter 7, we believe that the aircraft is an asset worth having and maintaining.”
The site says, further: “As we start scheduling our first maintenance operation for the Second week in April, please do not hesitate to contact us anytime…to schedule SB compliance, 300hr inspections, and any further concerns that you may have.
“Being on the floor at EAC afforded us the opportunity to learn the aircraft and how not to handle the customer. It also has given us the opportunity to understand, in most cases, how to side step PI and keep you legally flying,” it says.
Eclipse 500 Services had not returned our e-mails, seeking additional information, as we prepared to post to GeneralAviationNews.com.
