Honda Aircraft secured the type certificate for the HondaJet from Transport Canada on June 1, allowing deliveries to Canadian registration customers to begin.

“We are proud to achieve Canadian certification for the HondaJet, which signifies it meets the high safety standards governed by Transport Canada,” Honda Aircraft Company President and CEO Michimasa Fujino said in a statement. “With multiple orders in the pipeline, achieving this important milestone will now allow us to begin HondaJet deliveries to our Canadian registration customers.”

The HondaJet's Canadian type certification follows approval in the United States, Europe (European Aviation Safety Agency), and Mexico (Directorate General of Civil Aviation).

Honda Aircraft Co. partnered with Skyservice Business Aviation—which has facilities in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Ottawa—to provide sales, service and support for customers in Canada.

“Honda has a strong reputation in Canada. The HondaJet, with its high performance and superior fuel efficiency, further builds on that positive brand image,” said Marshall Myles, Chairman and CEO for Skyservice. “We are proud to represent the HondaJet in Canada.”

With a maximum cruise speed of 422 knots and a maximum altitude of 43,000 feet, HondaJet's Canadian customers will soon be enjoying the skies in their new HA-420's.
