HondaJet Makes First Public Appearance in South America
Today the HondaJet made its first public appearance in South America, strutting its stuff at the Conghonas Airport in São Paulo. The visit was part of LABACE 2015, the largest business aviation show in Latin America, which runs from August 11th to the 13th.
The HondaJet, the world’s most advanced light jet, received an enthusiastic welcome from business and private jet users alike, with many putting in orders for the plane after just the first day of the event.
“We are extremely pleased with the early response to the HondaJet by customers in South America,” said Michimasa Fujino, Honda Aircraft Company President and CEO. “In addition to receiving multiple orders, many more individuals at LABACE have expressed interest in the HondaJet, saying they are impressed with its class-leading performance, comfort, fuel efficiency and overall fit and finish.”

The Honda Aircraft Company just recently expanded sales of the HondaJet to Latin America, appointing Líder Aviação as the exclusive dealer for Brazil. Based in Belo Horizonte, Líder operates over 23 fixed base operations throughout the South American country.
Though the HondaJet is just on display for now, after LABACE 2015 ends on Thursday, Aviação and the Honda Aircraft Company will provide a demonstration tour of the plane’s performance capabilities for Brazilian customers.
“There is strong market potential in Brazil, and Honda Aircraft Company is committed to creating a higher standard for the light jet market in South America,” said Fujino.
