HondaJet Achieves FAA Type Certification


HondaJet Ceremony

Yesterday in Greensboro, North Carolina, at the Honda Aircraft Company headquarters, FAA administrator Michael Huerta presented Honda Aircraft Company President and CEO Michimasa Fujino with the HondaJet type certificate, the culmination of a 30-year journey. Honda Aircraft associates, government leaders, industry partners – including Garmin – were on hand to celebrate the monumental occasion.

A clean-sheet design process that began in the mid 1980's, the HondaJet completed its FAA testing regimen that exceeded 3,000 total flight hours and more than 70 locations in the United States. These tests were aimed at proving the jet's performance, safety, function and reliability. 

The HondaJet is categorized as a light jet, featuring many innovative and unique design features. These include an all composite fuselage, natural-laminar flow wing and Over-The-Wing Engine Mount configuration. The cockpit features our G3000 all-glass integrated flight deck. This next generation avionics system includes three 14-inch high-resolution displays and dual touchscreen controllers, offering pilots enhanced flight planning, navigation, situational awareness and control.

Now that FAA type certification is complete, the company is ramping up production, with 25 aircraft currently on the final assembly line. They are preparing for deliveries, pilot training and after-sales customer service and support by the end of the year.
