Eclipse Aerospace, Inc. (EAI) and National Airways Corporation (NAC) are delighted to announce that Eclipse Aerospace has received a Type Certificate validation from the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) for the Eclipse Twin-Engine Jet, and the first Eclipse Jet has been exported to South Africa. The Eclipse Jet made its first appearance in Africa at the AAD at Waterkloof in September of 2012. This marks the forty-sixth country in which the Eclipse Jet is certified for use.
“Eclipse Aerospace is extremely pleased with the award of the Eclipse Jet type certification from South Africa,” stated Ken Ross, President of Global Services, Eclipse Aerospace. “It was a pleasure working together with the SACAA and the NAC team to introduce the Eclipse Jet to South Africa. In addition we are excited to welcome Mr. Kobus Dicks as the first Eclipse Jet Owner, not just in South Africa but on the African continent.”
“I am extremely pleased with the efficiency and speed of my Eclipse Jet. My business takes me throughout South Africa on a weekly basis, and I’m able to visit multiple facilities in a truly advanced single pilot aircraft that has wholly surpassed my expectations,” said Kobus Dicks, the first Eclipse owner in South Africa.
