Many vlj’s companies are struggling or are dead.
First, the fallen companies.

I see these companies also failing
I see these companies making it
Cirrus: Vision SJ50
Diamond: Diamond D-jet
Embraer: its vlj line
Eclipse: two planes (maybe?)
Also, Eclipse is reducing production of the jet, has many refunds (which last time I heard were not returned), and is dealing with the certification of another jet.

Now maybe we can blame all these faliures and eminent faliures on the rigors of certification, the lack of funding, the jumble of too many companies, the lack of experience or the unrealistic plans set forth by companies. But clearly, business’s are failing.
