  1. HondaJet Nears Full FAA Certification
    The Honda Aircraft Company recently announced that the HondaJet is on the cusp of gaining full type certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The airframer completed all function and reliability (F&R) test conditions and is concluding F&R flights for the HondaJet. The announcement was part of a program update shared at the National Business Aviation Association Convention and Exhibition, which was held in Las Vegas from Nov. 17 to 19. “Honda Aircraft will conclude testing with the FAA in a few days, which will pave the way for HondaJet type certification and entry into service,” said Honda Aircraft Company President and CEO Michimasa Fujino. “We are expecting FAA type certification of the world’s most advanced light jet very soon.”
  2. Function and reliability testing simulates typical, in-service flight operations for a new aircraft design. Testing includes takeoffs, landings, system operations, failure cases, approaches, and operations in hot, cold, and humid environments. This ensures the aircraft, including its components and equipment, is reliable and functioning properly. The HondaJet has flown missions to 54 airports in 31 states in the continental United States as part of F&R testing.In October, Honda Aircraft completed all Part 23 certification flight testing. The flight test program has exceeded 3,000 total flight hours and testing was conducted at more than 70 locations in the U.S. Once full type certification is granted by the FAA, HondaJet will be able to start delivery of aircraft to their eager client base.
