Honda Aircraft Company said it has begun deliveries of the advanced light jet HondaJet.
The company delivered the first aircraft today at its world headquarters in Greensboro, North Carolina. This milestone follows final type certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which the HondaJet received on Dec. 8.
Honda Aircraft is manufacturing the HondaJet at its world headquarters in Greensboro. The aircraft is offered for sale in North America, South America and Europe through the HondaJet dealer network.
To support HondaJet customers, Honda Aircraft has established a worldwide dealer network in 11 territories. HondaJet dealers are ready to support aircraft entry into service, together with a 90,000 square-foot customer service facility in Greensboro to support the dealer network with heavy maintenance, repair and overhaul capabilities.
Pilot training is already being conducted for HondaJet customers with a full-motion, Level D flight simulator installed at the Honda Aircraft Training Center in Greensboro.
The HondaJet includes revolutionary technology and design innovations, including the Over-The-Wing Engine Mount design–that help it achieve higher speeds, better fuel efficiency, and a more spacious cabin over conventional aircraft in its class.
Honda Aircraft is a wholly owned subsidiary of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. Founded in 2006, Honda Aircraft´s world headquarters is located in North Carolina, the birthplace of aviation.
