HondaJet Returns to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh With Expanded Honda Presence
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wis. - (June 8, 2006) — At this year's EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration, Honda will return with the groundbreaking very light jet HondaJet, which was unveiled to the world in a brief appearance at AirVenture 2005. This year Honda will display the jet for the duration of the show inside the new Honda Pavilion, now located just north of AeroShell Square.
Members of the HondaJet development team, including Michimasa Fujino, HondaJet project leader and vice president of Honda R&D Americas, Inc., will be on hand throughout the week to talk about the innovative aircraft and answer questions.
"With HondaJet on display for the full week, aviation enthusiasts will have an excellent opportunity to get a closer look at the design characteristics and technologies that this aircraft brings to the very light jet community," said Tom Poberezny, EAA president and AirVenture chairman.
Honda has been a part of EAA AirVenture for many years with motorcycle and power equipment displays, in addition to last year's world debut of HondaJet. This year, together with HondaJet, the Honda Pavilion will highlight Honda Racing and feature two IndyCars, as well as an expansive display of motorcycles, generators, personal watercraft and marine engines.
