One of the hottest new light jet companies is Eclipse, backed in part by Bill Gates. For a long time the show was the Eclipse 500, a twin jet for roughly $1.5 million.
Eclipse Aviation has subsquently gone through bankruptcy and the assets are still in a state of flux. Production has been halted.

Only just announced, the Eclipse Concept Jet made its first public flying appearance at the show, and it performed impressively.
