As we found out, first HondaJet's business jet in France delivered to a client last week. The owner of the new aircraft is a private customer, whose name is not disclosed by the manufacturer. E.A.T.I.S. Flight Academy, based at Strasbourg Airport and specializing in training pilots, will be taking care of aicraft management. The new HondaJet will receive French registration numbers and carried out its first flight from Greensboro ( Honda Aircraft plant)  to Strasbourg with five technical stops.

As commented E.A.T.I.S. Flight Academy representative, the aircraft will be operated in the interests of the client, as well as carry out charter flights with prior approval. In the future E.A.T.I.S. Flight Academy plans to use the aircraft as a "flying desk", but the process of validating the certificate, which allows to train pilots for Honda Aircraft, is just launched in E.A.T.I.S. Flight Academy does not hide that it can take quite a long time.

At present, Honda Aircraft has delivered to customers fifty-five HondaJet aircraft. Most of the aircraft (52 sides) were transferred to customers from the United States, two planes went to Europe and one went to Mexico. Out of 55 aircraft, twenty-five were delivered in 2016.

Despite its small size, the aircraft develops a cruising speed of up to 422 knots (777 km / h) with a practical range of over 2200 km.  By mounting engines over the wing, designing Natural Laminar Flow for the wing and fuselage, and applying other innovations, the HondaJet outperforms all other aircraft in its class. The culmination of cutting-edge innovation makes the HondaJet the world’s most advanced light business jet. It climbs and cruises faster, soars higher, offers more room and less noise, and uses less fuel.
