Honda Aircraft Company recently delivered the first HondaJet in Europe. The announcement was made during a ceremonial delivery at AERO 2016, which is taking place in Friedrichshafen, Germany from April 20-23.

“Delivering the first HondaJet in Europe is a significant milestone in our journey to bring new value to the light jet market,” said Honda Aircraft Company President and CEO Michimasa Fujino. “Our first customers who have made their commitment to fly the HondaJet are taking Honda skyward in a bold way. It has been rewarding to see the joy in their faces as they take delivery of their aircraft.”

The first HondaJet to enter service in Europe will be operated by Rheinland Air Service, the exclusive HondaJet dealer for Central Europe.

“For more than 40 years, Rheinland Air Service has been serving the European business aviation market with superior aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul capabilities, as well as aircraft sales, support and fueling,” said Johannes Graf von Schaesberg, chairman and CEO for Rheinland Air Service. “We are honored to be partners with Honda Aircraft Company and to serve as the exclusive HondaJet dealer for Central Europe. With the delivery of our HondaJet, we look forward to showcasing its class-leading performance and fuel efficiency to our customers.”

The HondaJet was developed from a clean sheet design and incorporates advanced technologies and innovations. The HondaJet Over-The-Wing Engine Mount (OTWEM) configuration, natural-laminar flow wing and composite fuselage were developed from long-term Honda research activities. These innovations combine to make the HondaJet the fastest, most spacious and most fuel-efficient jet in its class.

The HondaJet is manufactured at Honda Aircraft Company’s world headquarters in Greensboro, North Carolina. The HA-420 HondaJet received FAA type certification in December 2015 and immediately began customer deliveries in North America.
