HondaJet adds to order book at LABACE 15
Honda says that its new $4.5 million HondaJet has received multiple orders during the 2015 LABACE show.
The company is showing the HondaJet for the first time in Latin America.
“We are extremely pleased with the early response to the HondaJet by customers in South America,” said Honda Aircraft Company president and CEO Michimasa Fujino. “In addition to receiving multiple orders, many more individuals at LABACE have expressed interest in the HondaJet, saying they are impressed with its class-leading performance, comfort, fuel efficiency and overall fit and finish.”
The HondaJet received its provisional type certificate (PTC) from the FAA in March 2015. Following receipt of the PTC, Honda said it was expecting to receive the full type certificate a few months later.
Speaking to Corporate Jet Investor at EBACE 2014, Fujino said that the company would deliver six aircraft immediately after the HondaJet gets its full type certificate, and a further 50 aircraft in the 12 months following.
