Eclipse President Raburn new ASF Life AssociateEclipse President Raburn new ASF Life Associate

Eclipse Aviation President and CEO Vern Raburn became the latest member of the AOPA Air Safety Foundation "Life Associate" Program. Raburn presented a personal check to AOPA President Phil Boyer June 9 at the annual New Mexico Pilot Bash. The event was held this year in the new Eclipse headquarters and assembly complex at Sunport International Airport in Albuquerque. ASF Life Associates receive a lifetime AOPA membership, special recognition, tax deductions, and other benefits for their generous contributions to support ASF safety research and educational programs.

Raburn's company is building the unique Eclipse 500, a six-place personal jet slated to sell for less than some current turboprops (see " Turbine Pilot: An Inside Look at Eclipse," February Pilot).
