Honda Aircraft Company announced that based on General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) data, the HondaJet is the most delivered aircraft in its class for the first half of 2019, the company said.
During the first six months of the year, 17 aircraft were delivered to customers around the world.
The HondaJet became the first light jet to enter service in Hawaii as two HondaJet Elites were delivered to Wing Spirit, a newly-established company that will provide luxurious and convenient charter services with a fleet of 15 HondaJets. Additionally, Honda Aircraft broke ground on a new USD 15.5 million dollar, 83,000-square-foot production facility that will increase production efficiency at its North Carolina headquarters. The HondaJet Elite also received type certification from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) this month.
The HondaJet Elite incorporates Honda Aircraft´s many technological innovations, including the unique Over-The-Wing Engine Mount (OTWEM) configuration, Natural Laminar Flow (NLF) nose and wing and composite fuselage.
