HondaJet to Make Its First Appearance West of the Rocky Mountains as Part of Honda Aircraft’s NBAA Convention Presence

Greensboro, North Carolina - October 6, 2011 - Today, the HondaJet aircraft departed North Carolina to make its first appearance west of the Rockies en route to play a starring role in Honda Aircraft’s presence at the upcoming National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Convention, and to make a first stop at two locations along the way, to and from the convention.

Honda Aircraft will have a major presence at the NBAA Convention, the world’s largest business aviation annual event, which will be held this year in Las Vegas, Nevada, October 10 to 12.
The company will have a large exhibit space in the Las Vegas Convention Center (Booth C11433) that will include a full-size interior mockup of the HondaJet, as well as spotlight areas showcasing the aircraft’s innovations, avionics and in-flight entertainment system, HondaJet Sales and Support network, and more. The HondaJet aircraft will be the feature attraction at Honda Aircraft’s static display at nearby Henderson Executive Airport.

The HondaJet flights to and from Las Vegas also will enable people in Phoenix and Dallas to see the HondaJet in-person in their cities for the first time.
HondaJet Southwest, the HondaJet dealer serving that area, will host an informal reception at Cutter Aviation Phoenix (PHX) and Cutter Aviation Dallas-McKinney (TKI), where the HondaJet will land while traveling to and from the NBAA Convention. HondaJet flight test engineers and pilots, as well as the HondaJet Southwest team, will be on hand to point out the state-of-the-art features and revolutionary design of the HondaJet and to answer questions.

Honda Aircraft invites visitors to its convention hall exhibit and static display at the NBAA Convention.
The company, along with HondaJet Southwest, also invites visitors to the HondaJet Southwest receptions to see the HondaJet in Phoenix and Dallas.
