Greensboro, North Carolina – The HondaJet departed North Carolina, October 6, 2011, to make its first appearance west of the Rockies en route to the upcoming National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Convention in Las Vegas, October 10-12. The 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 (www.hondajet.com).
