Certification Delay

On June 25th, Eclipse sent out a press release stating the late June certification date had been pushed back a few weeks.

Happens in the best of families. The rub is Vern Raburn blaming the suppliers for delay in their equipment TSO's (Technical Standard Orders which describe certification requirements for equipment installed on certified aircraft).

There are two sides to every story and if the truth were known, we would probably find that changes mandated be Eclipse have delayed or caused suppliers to re-do TSO qualification testing and analysis.
