Honda Aircraft Company today made the first delivery of its recently-certified HondaJet. The delivery to an undisclosed customer was made at the company’s Greensboro, N.C., headquarters, where the light jet is manufactured.
“We are very excited to commence deliveries of the HondaJet, fulfilling Honda’s commitment to advancing human mobility through innovation,” commented Honda Aircraft president and CEO Michimasa Fujino. “Honda Aircraft has now extended this commitment skyward with the delivery of our first aircraft, and I hope we soon will begin to see many HondaJets at airports around the world.”
Honda Aircraft has a network of dealers in 11 countries across North America, South America and Europe, which will provide customer support, supplementing Honda Aircraft's 90,000-sq-ft customer support facility in Greensboro. Pilot training is being conducted with a full-motion Level D flight simulator at the FlightSafety Honda learning center co-located at the Greensboro campus.
