McConnell, the vice president for sales and marketing of Eclipse Aviation said the company is on track to reach its year-end production goal of one Eclipse 500 jet per day. In fact, by the end of November, Eclipse will have delivered more than 80 planes to customers, up from 30 in June, McConnell said.
"It´s unfortunate the news reports only focus on one small sliver of the story, because we´re doing great," McConnell told the New Mexico Business Weekly. "There´s been a few hiccups here and there, but we´re having a great ride. We´re starting to see all our hard work pay off."
Eclipse Aviation won FAA type certification for the Eclipse 500 a year ago , but has struggled mightily to get production rates high enough to match the company´s ambitious business plan.
