ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Albuquerque's Eclipse Aerospace hopes to sell some of its small jets to the U.S. Air Force.
Eclipse says the deal could save the air force more than $1 billion over the next decade.
The air force is looking for a new basic level jet trainer to replace some of its older, fuel hungry models.
Eclipse CEO Mason Holland says he met with air force leaders and pitched the Albuquerque-built jet as a solution.
Holland said the eclipse is 70 percent more fuel efficient than the present air force trainer and requires 70 percent less maintenance.
