Finally some good news coming from Eclipse once again. Roel Pieper expects orders from European nations, Russia and Turkey to start flowing in, and maybe there is a silver lining for Eclipse after all! And as many of you know, I sure hope so!

The way this company has been run...too little, too late IMHO. Unless they tear out the woefully faulty Avio avionics and replace it with some sort of G1000 adaptation, this plane won't be very competative. This is especially true given it's small size compared to a Cessna Mustang, yet similar price tag.
Let's not forget their massive financial crisis, the fact that they can barely pay their employees, half their order book vanished when DayJet went under, lawsuits from angry customers piling up, and of course 200+ incomplete airplanes out there requiring Avio and FIKI upgrades that have yet to come.
IMO their production stands at 0 aircraft completed to spec.
It's a shame too, I had hopes for this company. I think the idea is great...but the execution was abysmal.
