Honda Aircraft in late July said that power was switched on for the first time in its first conforming flight-test HondaJet light jet, while the fuselage and wing assemblies were mated for the first static test aircraft. “With this significant milestone achieved, we are now focused on the integration of avionics and other electrical systems in anticipation of first flight later this year,” said Honda Aircraft president and CEO Michimasa Fujino. Last month, the static-test article began static structural testing at Honda Aircraft’s headquarters in Greensboro, N.C. Honda expects FAA certification of the HondaJet in mid-2012.
