Posted 23 May 2016 · Add Comment

HondaJet received type certification today from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) with the company announcing the achievement during a press conference at EBACE which is taking place in Geneva, Switzerland.

Steven Higgins, EASA Section Manager for High Performance Aircraft and Turboprops, presented the type certificate for the HA-420 HondaJet to Honda Aircraft Company President and CEO Michimasa Fujino.

"We are excited to achieve EASA certification for the HondaJet today. This certification signifies the HondaJet meets the highest European safety standards,” said Fujino. “Our customers have shared that this aircraft is not only high performance, but intelligent, fun to fly and very sophisticated. HondaJet deliveries in Europe have begun, and we are excited to see the HondaJet enter service in this important market.”

HondaJet sales began in Europe after significant interest by customers wanting to own the world’s most advanced light jet. The HondaJet received its type certificate from the United States Federal Aviation Administration in December 2015. Deliveries have included customers in the U.S., Mexico and Europe.
