Honda Aircraft has configured a HondaJet for medical evacuation missions for the first time.
“We are pleased to announce the installation of the first medevac configuration on the HondaJet,” said Honda Aircraft president and chief executive Michimasa Fujino at the NBAA-BACE show today. A mock-up of the medevac cabin is being displayed on the Honda Aircraft booth.
The medevac configuration was installed on a HondaJet Elite owned by Wing Spirit, which is an air ambulance and charter company based in Hawaii.
Meanwhile Honda is strengthening its service and support capabilities with the expansion of its global service network. It has added a northeastern US service centre in Wilmington, Delaware with the appointment of Federal Aviation Administration Part 145 approved service station, flyADVANCED.
Honda Aircraft has also begun construction on a second FlightSafety International HondaJet Elite simulator, which will be located in Farnborough, UK, to support European HondaJet customers. It is due to enter service in April 2020.
