Eclipse Aero Rising...Again? Eclipse Aerospace (EAI) is in the news again not for bankruptcy-related news though. It appears the company is trying to make a comeback. In fact the company is actually operational it seems with 50 employees back at work, all of them former Eclipse Aero staff. British entrepreneur Christopher Harborne is perhaps responsible for allowing the company to be where it is currently. He purchased the brand from the umbrella company One Aviation-which was the last major reinvention of the Eclipse saga-. Mr. Harborne is said to have spent over 6 million dollars in production equipment; MRO facilities in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Aurora, Illinois. Additionally since 2006 there have been over 280 aircraft delivered which naturally are in need of maintenance support.
