  1. FAA Certification Gained By The Honda Jet
    The day has finally come for the Honda Aircraft Company that concludes a very long journey as a run-up to certification for the Honda Jet. The Honda Jet has been granted full Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification. The type certification was granted on Tuesday 8th, December but the formal announcement was made by both the FAA and Honda Aircraft Company yesterday, the 9th. Honda Aircraft Company validated the HondaJet’s performance, safety, function and reliability through rigorous ground and flight tests with the FAA. Total flight hours exceeded 3,000, with testing conducted at more than 70 locations across the United States.
  2. “Achieving FAA type certification for the HondaJet is a monumental milestone for Honda,” said Fujino. “We established Honda Aircraft as a new aerospace company and introduced our first product — an advanced light jet with technologies developed from serious research activities. We designed, tested, and have now certified this clean-sheet design aircraft – an unprecedented challenge for Honda.” The FAA presented the type certificate to Honda Aircraft Company President and CEO Michimasa Fujino in front of more than 2,000 people, including FAA Administrator Michael Huerta, government representatives, community leaders, HondaJet dealers, suppliers, and Honda Aircraft associates. With certification in hand, Honda can now work towards delivering the Over-The-Wing-Engine-Mount (OTWEM) light jet to customers. Honda Aircraft is now ramping up production in Greensboro with 25 aircraft on the final assembly line. The Honda Aircraft workforce is nearing 1,700 people, as the company prepares for deliveries, pilot training and after-sales customer service and support by the end of the year.
