The HondaJet has begun a demonstration tour for customers as Honda Aircraft and the HondaJet dealer network continue final preparations for entry into service. “Over the past three weeks, many customers experienced their first flight in the HondaJet during a special demonstration tour, and we have enjoyed seeing their excitement as we showcase the aircraft’s capabilities,” said Honda Aircraft Company President and CEO Michimasa Fujino. “The HondaJet program is also in the final phase of certification testing with the Federal Aviation Administration with all four flight test aircraft maintaining an intensive certification testing schedule.”
