Honda Aircraft Company recently delivered the first HondaJet into Europe, the company said.
The announcement was made during a ceremonial delivery at AERO 2016, which is taking place in Friedrichshafen, Germany from April 20-23.
The first HondaJet to enter service in Europe will be operated by Rheinland Air Service, the exclusive HondaJet dealer for Central Europe.
The HondaJet was developed from a clean sheet design and incorporates advanced technologies and innovations. The HondaJet Over-The-Wing Engine Mount (OTWEM) configuration, natural-laminar flow wing and composite fuselage were developed from long-term Honda research activities. These innovations combine to make the HondaJet the fastest, most spacious and most fuel-efficient jet in its class.
The HondaJet is manufactured at Honda Aircraft Company´s world headquarters in Greensboro, North Carolina. The HA-420 HondaJet received FAA type certification in December 2015 and immediately began customer deliveries in North America.
The HondaJet is the fastest, highest-flying, quietest, and most fuel-efficient jet in its class.
