Honda Aircraft Company announced today that the HondaJet has received type certification from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority of Mexico, the Dirección General de Aeronáutica Civil (DGAC).

The world’s most advanced light jet also will make its debut at the 2016 Aero Expo, Mexico’s most prominent business aviation event. The trade show is being held at the Toluca International Airport from March 16 to 18 where a production HondaJet will be on static display.

“Receiving aircraft validation in Mexico is an important milestone for Honda Aircraft Company, paving the way for the start of HondaJet deliveries in Mexico,” said Honda Aircraft Company President and CEO Michimasa Fujino. “We are excited to respond to the interests of customers in Mexico, and we will begin with the first delivery in a few weeks.”

To provide sales, service and support for customers in Mexico, Honda Aircraft has partnered with Aerolineas Ejecutivas – the largest executive aviation company in Mexico. Aerolineas Ejecutivas has been a pioneer in business aviation services since it introduced the first jet for executive charter service. The company’s expansive footprint includes operations in major cities including Toluca and Monterrey.

“It is a tremendous opportunity and a privilege to sell a world-class product like HondaJet that our customers will embrace,” said Aerolineas Ejecutivas President Arturo Ortega Olive. “There are several business opportunities for HondaJet in the Mexico business jet market. We are excited to showcase this advanced light jet for the first time at Aero Expo.”

The HondaJet incorporates advanced technological innovations that were developed from long-term research activities. The patented Over-The-Wing Engine Mount (OTWEM) configuration, natural laminar flow wing and nose, and composite fuselage deliver a superior combination of speed, comfort and fuel efficiency over other jets in its class.

The HondaJet received U.S. Federal Aviation Administration type certification on Dec. 8, 2015, and the company began deliveries on Dec. 23, 2015. The HondaJet is manufactured at Honda Aircraft Company’s world headquarters in Greensboro, N.C.
