Albuquerque, New Mexico-based One Aviation laid off an unspecified number of workers this week, a move the company attributed to the end of production of the Eclipse 550 very light jet as it looks toward building the larger Eclipse 700 (also known as “Project Canada”). “We obviously made some difficult decisions that affect production of the EA550 in favor of focusing on service, and bringing the EA700 to production,” company CEO Alan Klapmeier told AIN.
Textron Aviation may have ended production of the Cessna Citation Mustang earlier this year, but pilots flying the popular light jet won't be left behind. This is thanks to a pair of significant upgrade programs announced by Garmin and Tamarack last week in conjunction with the 2017 Citation Jet Pilots Association (CJP) convention in Phoenix.
No other certified aircraft in recent memory experienced a gestation as difficult as that of the original very light jet. More than 10 years have passed since now-defunct Eclipse Aviation delivered the first Eclipse 500s without flight into known icing (FIKI) certification or even basic GPS navigation functionality, and few expected the type would ever outlast that company’s 2008 bankruptcy. Today, close to 300 Eclipse jets are operating throughout the world.
Sad to see @MikeAndMike coming to an end today. Been a fan since listening on drives home from Dallas but the show took on added poignancy after my cancer scares in 2006. Thanks for piquing my interest in the NFL and MLB and for introducing me to Jimmy V's ESPYs speech.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
