The Eclipse 500 is a marketing name for the Eclipse Aerospace EA500, a small six-seat American business jet aircraft (including one or two pilots) originally manufactured by Eclipse Aviation and later upgraded and sold by Eclipse Aerospace.
The Eclipse 500 became the first of a new class of Very Light Jets for four passengers when it was delivered in late 2006. The aircraft is powered by two lightweight Pratt & Whitney Canada PW610F turbofan engines in aft fuselage-mounted nacelles.
An American commercial aviation focused on on-demand jet taxi service ordered 239 airframes (with a goal of 1,400) but in May 2008, it sold or leased out 16 of the 28 Eclipse 500s it owned. In Fall 2008, its bankruptcy led Eclipse Aerospace to the same way the following month.
In April 2015 Eclipse Aerospace was merged with Kestrel Aircraft to form One Aviation so these very light jets are sometimes named One Aviation Eclipse 500 but no one left the assembly line really built by this company.
This page lists all films that feature a variation of the Eclipse Aerospace EA500 / One Aviation Eclipse 500.
