Honda Aircraft made the announcement at Begumpet Airport during Wings India, where the HondaJet is making its first-ever appearance.
“We are confident that the addition of Arrow Aircraft as an authorized sales representative will allow for the HondaJet to be successful in the fast-growing business aviation market of India. We are looking forward to their strong sales and promotion of the most advanced light jet in the market,” said Honda Aircraft President and CEO Michimasa Fujino.
Arrow Aircraft Managing Director of Sales and Charters Rohit Kapur added, “We are excited to be appointed as HondaJet India. The business aviation market continues to grow in our area and the HondaJet’s performance and features are a true game-changer. We are looking forward to providing our customers with a dedicated sales team for the fastest, most comfortable and efficient business jet in its category.”
The HondaJet is claimed to be the fastest, highest-flying, quietest, and most fuel-efficient jet in its category. It incorporates an unique Over-The-Wing Engine Mount (OTWEM) configuration, which according to the company, dramatically improves performance and fuel efficiency by reducing aerodynamic drag. The OTWEM design also reduces cabin noise, minimizes ground-detected noise, and allows for the roomiest cabin and largest baggage capacity in its class and a fully serviceable private aft lavatory.
Also, the company said that the HondaJet is equipped with the most sophisticated glass flight deck available in any light business jet, a Honda-customized Garmin G3000 avionics.
