Marshall Aviation Services has welcomed the HondaJet to its Cambridge International airport headquarters to make its UK debut, following its first European appearance at EBACE.
The aircraft, which has a distinctive over-the-wing engine mount design, was parked at the Cambridge FBO for invitation-only viewings. Marshall Aviation Services is Honda's newly appointed sales and service provider for northern Europe with a territory encompassing the UK regions north of the M4 motor- way plus the Isle of Man, Channel Islands, Ireland, Scandinavia and the Benelux countries.

The aircraft then departed Cambridge for Birmingham International airport, where it was placed outside Marshall's newest FBO and designated UK sales and support centre for the aircraft.
