Honda Aircraft Company has unveiled its first Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) programme, offering an alternative way to own a HondaJet with guaranteed support.
The company said that before receiving the CPO designation, each CPO HondaJet undergoes discerning selection, a rigorous inspection and expert maintenance processes to ensure it meets Honda’s high standards for quality, safety and performance. The programme also offers end-to-end services, from entry-into-service to post-sales support, backed by Honda Aircraft Company and its authorised sales network.
Every CPO HondaJet must pass a 208-point standard inspection conducted by Honda-trained technicians across the authorised service network. Additionally, all aircraft qualified for the CPO programme will be upgraded to the highest performance level available for each model, based on applicable service bulletins.
As part of the programme, CPO buyers will also receive a FlightSafety Initial Pilot Training session and a six-month or 100-hour credit (whichever occurs first) provided by Honda Aircraft to be applied toward the cost associated with the Airframe Flight Ready Performance programme.
The programme facilitates direct collaborations with the company’s team of factory-employed sales professionals.
“As demand for the HondaJet continues to rise, pre-owned aircraft have become an increasingly important entry point into the HondaJet community,” said Amod Kelkar, chief commercial officer, Honda Aircraft Company. “The CPO programme extends our commitment to excellence to all aspects of the long-term ownership experience and ensures that all HondaJet owners, both current and future, will have the best ownership experience and peace of mind, regardless of their position in the ownership journey.”
The HondaJet global fleet exceeds 185,000 flight hours and has grown to more than 230 aircraft worldwide. The new CPO programme is now available to customers across the Americas, Europe and Asia through the company’s authorised sales network. Customers can access both the certified and non-certified pre-owned HondaJet inventory on the company’s official website.
