HondaJet Obtains Brazilian Type Certification

16.08.2017: Honda Aircraft Company announced today that the HondaJet received its type certificate from Brazilian National Civil Aviation Agency

Honda Aircraft Company announced today that the HondaJet received its type certificate from Brazilian National Civil Aviation Agency on August 8, 2017.



 The announcement was made at the annual Latin American Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (LABACE) 2017, being held at the Congonhas Airport in Sao Paulo from Aug. 15 to 17 where a HondaJet is on static display.



Brazilian type certification for the HondaJet follows approvals in the United States (Federal Aviation Administration), Europe (European Aviation Safety Agency), Mexico (Directorate General of Civil Aviation), and Canada (Transport Canada).



"We are excited to achieve Brazilian certification for HondaJet," said Honda Aircraft Company President and CEO Michimasa Fujino. "We are eager to respond to customer interest in one of the largest business jet markets in the world."



Honda Aircraft appointed Lider Aviacão as the exclusive dealer in 2015 to provide sales, service and support for customers in Brazil. Based in Belo Horizonte, Lider operates more than 21 fixed base operations (FBOs) throughout Brazil.



"The type certification is a tremendous milestone for the Brazilian market," said Eduardo Vaz, CEO for Lider Aviação. "The aircraft is particularly ideal for intra-Brazil travel, connecting all the major cities, with the comfort, speed and high performance only found in the HondaJet."


In conjunction with LABACE, the HondaJet will tour around Central and Latin America, including the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Trinidad & Tobago, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Colombia, Panama, Nicaragua, and Guatemala throughout the months of August and September.
