Honda Aircraft Company announced that its advanced light jet HondaJet has received its type certificate from Transport Canada. The approval paves the way for the company to begin deliveries to Canadian registration customers.
Canadian type certification for the HondaJet follows approvals in the USA (Federal Aviation Administration), Europe (European Aviation Safety Agency), and Mexico (Directorate General of Civil Aviation). To provide sales, service and support for customers in Canada, Honda Aircraft Company has also partnered with Skyservice, which has facilities in Montreal (Quebec), Toronto (Ontario), Calgary (Alberta) and Ottawa (Ontario).
Michimasa Fujino, Honda Aircraft Company president and CEO, commented, “We are proud to achieve Canadian certification for the HondaJet, which signifies it meets the high safety standards governed by Transport Canada. With multiple orders in the pipeline, achieving this important milestone will now allow us to begin HondaJet deliveries to our Canadian registration customers.”
Marshall Myles, chairman and CEO for Skyservice, added, “Honda has a strong reputation in Canada. The HondaJet, with its high performance and superior fuel efficiency, further builds on that positive brand image. We are proud to represent the HondaJet in Canada.”
