Traipsing around the region, the six-seater Eclipse 500 is a good-enough private jet to acquire. Powered by two lightweight Pratt & Whitney Canada PW610F turbofan engines in aft fuselage-mounted nacelles it can climb up to 41,000 ft (12,500 m) just like any commercial jetliner and has a maximum speed of 370 knots (425 mph, 685 km/h).
For longer distance, there’s always Singapore Airlines Suites but for Bihun Bebek in Medan in the morning, a trip to a private island in the Andaman Sea in the afternoon and Khao Kha Moo in Bangkok in the evening, this is the perfect little jet to use!
In fact, it’s the only way to fly.
NOTE: The 550 is an improved version and a client of mine owns one. The 500 not only delivers on the performance and functionality promises of the original jet, but also adds new capabilities.
