Company Aims For First Deliveries In 2010
Aero-News learned Wednesday the innovative -- and certainly
unique -- HondaJet will go on sale for the first time at the
National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) annual meeting and
convention, October 17-19 in Orlando, FL.
The HondaJet -- featuring a unique over-the-wing engine mount
and advanced natural-laminar flow (NLF) wing and nose, as well as
other technical advances -- will be exhibited at booth #5495 along
with a full-scale interior mock up display.
Members of the HondaJet development team and newly created sales
team will be on hand throughout the convention, including Michimasa
Fujino, president & CEO of Honda Aircraft Company, Inc., the
leader of the development team.
As Aero-News reported in
July, Honda announced at AirVenture 2006 a partnership
with Piper Aircraft to develop and market the 6- to 7-passenger
HondaJet. Honda hopes to start production and delivery of the first
plane in 2010. As of now, no pricing has been announced.
Honda Aircraft Company, Inc. was established in August
2006, for the development, production and sales of
HondaJet, and will pursue FAA type certification and production
certification in the US.
