Honda Aircraft Company receives FAA Production Certificate

Honda Aircraft Company announced today that it has earned a Production Certificate from the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Honda Aircraft Company is building the HA-420 HondaJet, an advanced light jet, at its world headquarters in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Melvin Johnson, FAA Small Aircraft Directorate Manager for the Central Region, presented the Production Certificate to Honda Aircraft Company during a special celebration with its associates and FAA officials on Friday, July 8.

"This is a great achievement for our company as an aircraft manufacturer, and it is a very important milestone for ramping up production. Honda Aircraft has demonstrated our commitment to build aircraft of the highest quality and that meet stringent safety requirements,” said Honda Aircraft Company President and CEO Michimasa Fujino. “We also want to recognize the strong collaboration with the FAA during this rigorous approval process.”

The Production Certificate grants Honda Aircraft the authorization to produce, flight test and issue airworthiness certificates for the HondaJet for customer deliveries.

“Honda’s commitment of time, resources and people, and with the adherence to FAA regulations and guidance has provided Honda Aircraft Company the privilege to be awarded a Production Certificate for the HA-420 HondaJet,” said Greg Benson, Manager of the FAA’s Manufacturing Inspection District Office in Atlanta. “Honda Aircraft Company’s continued commitment to quality and safety will solidify its place within the aviation industry. This is certainly a commemorative moment for both Honda Aircraft and the FAA.”

Honda Aircraft has been steadily ramping up production since receiving FAA type certification for the HondaJet last year.
