Eclipse Aviation wins 2005 Collier Trophy

This trophy is awarded only to the best of the best, based on their contribution to aviation. And as stated in this award link, the Eclipse 500 Very Light Jet is bringing jet engines to a much larger community of pilots, and a new type of air travel - the air taxi.

Me, I just want one because it is cheap to purchase. It fulfills all my operational requirements, and is the same price as a new Beech Baron 58. Yet, it is pressurised, can thus fly above the weather, and if you follow the sidebar link to Eclipse Aviation, you will see why I like it so much.

Well done, Eclipse! We are waiting patiently until you can start building some planes.
