ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The first two brand new Eclipse Aerospace jets are about to roll off the assembly line and go on sale.
The 2012 Total Eclipse Jets are the first to be produced in years.
The former company, Eclipse Aviation, declared bankruptcy in 2008.
What was left of the company was bought by a group run by CEO Mason Holland who named the new company Eclipse Aerospace.
The two new planes were made entirely in Albuquerque and Holland hope to keep it that way.
"I hope the relationship continues as is it does today," Holland said. "We're a great part of the community, we're proud to be there. I'm excited that everybody works pretty well together and I see it going on for many, many years."
Right now Eclipse employs 140 people in New Mexico. Holland hopes to add another 50 to 75 jobs in 2013.
The Total Eclipse Jet goes for almost $2.4 million that climbs to $2.7 million next year.
The original eclipse was hoping to sell planes for $1 million bucks.
