The Gary Jet Center is managing and hangaring one of the first HondaJets to be delivered in the United States, the company said.
Additionally, two Gary Jet Center pilots were among the first type rated in the aircraft and attended pilot training at the Honda Aircraft Training Center in Greensboro, N.C.
