Eclipse Aerospace has acquired the assets of Eclipse Aviation, and today, September 1st, 2009, was their first official day in business.
The press has not exactly been "all over this".
(Perhaps they are a bit -overly, I believe- cautious, because they are not quite "all over" their last experience of being mindless regurgitators of press releases- that being un-cautious, practically unconscious, and definitely unconscionable copy-dispensing drones).
Let's hope Eclipse (et al) and the press (THE press, as well as Mike Press- and Mason Holland-) are able to make this experience a more OPEN experience, than the previous adventures in aerospace episode.
Here are a few -of the few- available links on the opening:
The new company is off to a modest start-15 employees. With appreciation and empathy for everyone involved, it is difficult to predict how fast, and how far, things will ramp up.
But- it's a start- and a welcome one.
