The Eclipse 500 is a small, six-seat business jet aircraft manufactured by Eclipse Aviation. It is the second of a new class of business jets known as the Very Light Jet (VLJ, previously called 'Microjets'), following the delivery of the first VLJ, the Cessna Citation Mustang in late 2006. The plane is powered by two lightweight Pratt & Whitney Canada PW610F turbofan engines in tail-mounted nacelles. The Eclipse 500 costs $1,520,000.
