Brazil’s civil aviation authority (ANAC) awarded the type certificate for the HA-420 on 8 August.
The HondaJet made a debut appearance at the LABACE conference and exhibition in 2015. Honda Aircraft partnered with Lider Aviação, one of Brazil’s largest business aviation companies, as a local dealer.
“The aircraft is particularly ideal for intra-Brazil travel, connecting all the major cities,” says Eduardo Vaz, CEO for Lider Aviação.
Honda Aircraft announced that the HA-420 led all entry-level class jet deliveries in the first half of 2017 with 24 jets handed over. Honda Jet continues to expand in markets beyond the USA.
