Medevac configuration debuts on HondaJet Elite
As well as enabling air ambulance capability in Hawaii, Honda Aircraft Co has added a northeast US location to its service network and flew a HondaJet Elite to NBAA-BACE 2019 using sustainable aviation fuel.
A Hawaii-based HondaJet Elite has had the first medevac installation from Honda Aircraft.

Honda Aircraft Company has installed its first medevac configuration on a HondaJet Elite owned by Hawaii-based air ambulance and charter company Wing Spirit. “We are confident the aircraft's size, efficiency, speed and cabin comfort are well-suited to these special missions in the Hawaiian Islands,” says president and CEO Michimasa Fujino.

The company also continues to strengthen its service and support capabilities by adding to its network the Delaware-based service centre flyADVANCED, an FAA Part 145 repair station with airframe, power plant and radio ratings, Garmin dealer and service centre and mobile repair capability.

“flyADVANCED is proud to provide HondaJet customers and operators with unsurpassed levels of service in the northeastern United States,” says president Regis de Rame. “We are confident our team's levels of expertise and experience are tailor-made to support the world's most technologically advanced light jet.”

Additionally, due to increased demand for the HondaJet, Honda Aircraft has begun construction on a second FlightSafety International HondaJet Elite simulator. It will be located in Farnborough, Hampshire in the UK to support customers throughout Europe and is expected to begin operation in April 2020.

Fujino goes on to say: “As our fleet continues to increase in size, it is necessary for the HondaJet service, support and training network to expand. We are proud of the relationships we have with flyADVANCED, FlightSafety International and our support network around the globe. They have been instrumental in providing HondaJet customers with an unrivaled ownership experience.”
