Making a surprise debut at the EAA AirVenture 2007 Convention was the Eclipse Concept Jet, N5184U (c/n SE-400-001), which was unveiled there on July 23, 2007, having been flown into the show the previous evening. Developed in secrecy in just over six months, the aircraft made its first flight on July 2 and to date has accumulated just under 30 flight hours. Swift Engineering of San Clemente was contracted to assist with design of the aircraft and also subsequently built the prototype, which is officially registered as a Swift Mk 400. The aircraft is intended to help Eclipse analyse demand trends in the growing single-engined jet marketplace and gain customer reaction and insight into potential future aircraft products and designs.
