0

Honda Aircraft Company has 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 NBAA 2015, held in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, on November 17-19.

“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 Michimasa Fujino, president and CEO of Honda Aircraft Company. “We are expecting FAA type certification of the world’s most advanced light jet very soon.”

Since becoming operational in late 2014, the Honda Aircraft Training Center in Greensboro has been preparing to train pilots and maintenance technicians by increasing staff, developing infrastructure and finalizing curriculums.
