In 2017, One Aviation chairman Alan Klapmeier announced during the Experimental Aircraft Association AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin that Project Canada will be officially known as the Eclipse 700. The manufacturing company presented a cabin mockup to facilitate all cabin activities, as well as virtual reality for a simulated environment. One Aviation introduced aircraft’s features such as the Garmin G3000 avionics suite with an integrated touchscreen system, lithium-ion battery system from Acme Aerospace Inc., and Alteos Interactive Window System from PPG Aerospace for passenger cabin window shading.

The Eclipse 700 is larger compared with the EA 500/550 series. It has an external length of 10.6 meters, an external height of 2 meters, and a fuselage diameter of 1.55 meters. It has a tail height of 3.4 meters and a wheelbase of 4.5 meters. The wingspan is 12.7 meters. It has a cabin length of 4.11 meters, a cabin height of 1.27 meters, and a cabin width of 1.42 meters, and can accommodate up to six seats on board.

The light jet Eclipse 700 will be powered by two Williams FJ33 engines. It is a turbofan jet engine with a single-stage fan, with booster stage, driven by a 2-stage low-pressure turbine, supercharging a centrifugal-type high-pressure compressor, driven by a single-stage high-pressure turbine, and also features an annular combustor. The engine produces a maximum thrust of 1,500 lbf each. The engines will give the aircraft a better performance, faster speed, and a longer range. It has a travel range of 1,470 nautical miles and a maximum speed of 383 knots. The Eclipse 700 can fly up to 43,000 feet and can climb at a rate of 3,284 feet per minute. It has a takeoff and landing distance of 731 meters and 877 meters, respectively.

The Eclipse 700 has a maximum takeoff weight of 3,121 kg and a maximum landing weight of 2,875 kg. It has a maximum payload of 1,264 kg and a fuel tank capacity of 321 US gal.
