I assume most new turbine aircraft will have FADEC.
The new Cessna Citation Mustang (4 place, 8,000 lb jet aircraft) will have dual channel FADEC controlled engines.
Also the Cessna Citation CJ1+ and CJ2+ Part 23 jet have FADEC.

The best analogy for FADEC/EEC would a comparison of an old technology (carburaterur) auto engine to a new one with electronic fuel injection. From the user's perspective, it's much easier and more reliable.
Speaking as a pilot, the days of the mechanical fuel control units are long gone. I've been on FADEC/EEC engines since about 1987 and can't think of a single FADEC/EEC problem I've had. However in the 12 years prior to that, I lost count of the mechanical fuel control problems I encountered.

Quoting Spikebe90 (Reply 3): Thanks.We are looking at a CJ-2 + that has FADEC.I've never used it before.Should be interesting.
Those new FJ44-3-24 engines are supposed to be awesome. It can carry alot of weight (tanks full) and get over 1500nm. Throw in the Collins 21 Avionics suite and that thing is a dream to fly. We are acquiring one as well.

"The FAA has approved the Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) for general aviation. Developed by Teledyne Continental Motors and Aerosance, the system uses computers to better track and optimize engine conditions, adjusting mixture, carb heat, propeller pitch and power automatically. Aerosance claims that FADEC greatly improves engine performance, lowering fuel burn by as much as 15%. Retrofit kits are available for Bonanzas, and STCs are in the works for Barons and Cessna 206/210s. Teledyne says FADEC systems will be standard or optional equipment on the Adam A500, Cirrus SR22, Lancair 350 and 400, Liberty XL-2 and Diamond C-1."
36 is the Boeing customer code referring to British Airways and 38 is the customer referring to Qantas.
The 767-336ERs were built for BA and are a number of them are currently on lease to Qantas. Their registrations are VH-ZX* and they are equipped with the RB211s and they've got 4 exit doors. The leases were just renewed and apparently they recently equipped them with FADEC.
The 767-338ERs are Qantas build machines. They've got CF6s and 2 emergency exit doors/2 overwing exits.
