So i can safley say Eclipse aviation is shutting its doors they came out and told their employees that they can not pay them for the last 2 weeks,, and they can't get any more loans to stay afloat.. 1,300 jobs gone.. and Intel lost (a lot)this year so from what i have been hearing they are cutting jobs soon.
BUT FOR SOME GOOD MARTY GOVERNMENT SPENDING. :frown:
yester day i went to Double Eagle and noticed a brand new chain link fence with barb wire about 3 miles long with warning signs..WOW.. but what is it for.. i found out!!! it was for the airport.. no whear near the fence.. as a matter of fact their is nothing to do with the airport whear they put up the fence.. WTF.. red light camra surplus $$ they fenced in all the airport property even the stuff that has nothing to do with the air port ie the weeds and rabbits.. head up paseol del norte over the hills down the long strait away till it sharply turns left (south) at that turn to the air port is all fenced in. on the west side of the road..:cuss: no whear near anything...::willy_nilly:

The fence is some post Sept 11th federal mandate BS. Outside of Tatum, NM there is a little airport. Same thing there. They even upped the fence near the Roswell track (at least there are planes there). Somthing about fencing airport property...even vacant property owned by the airport?????

You are the biggest rumor mill of miss-information on the web! Intel continues to be profitable (in the billions every quarter) with money in the bank. I think everyone (probably intel included) will reduce head count in the next 4 to 10 months.

He gets all his info from the pictures in the comics because he probably can't read either.

actually they got funding. they have enough money for another couple weeks. they may be still getting the couple million or bilion dollars they needed but not very lickely. all paychecks are being paid and work starts again on monday. my dad is quality assurance manager. he is actually is getting a different job because they are way to unstable obviously. so eclipse is still there atleast for another couple weeks. maybe more if funding comes

Dude, Google is your friend! I'm not sure about your rumor-mill, but I think given the current economic climate; it doesn't matter where you work. NONE of our jobs are safe.

fuck keith, may be time to look for a new job
I don't technically work for Eclipse as of November 1st, I work for Computer Sciences Corporation. Eclipse has contracted them to do their IT work so my job is secure. Although, the last paycheck that Eclipse owed me happened to be this most recent one where "Eclipse employees won't be paid for their last two weeks of work." As of today apparently Eclipse will be able to make payroll, albiet a few days late, so I hope to see that money next week. :) I feel bad for Eclipse employees, though. :(

Yea pretty sure my job is just about the safest you can get, as far as job security goes. As far as physical safety, well that's another story...lol
