Honda Aircraft Company has announced the addition of a performance package for the HondaJet HA-420. The company’s new Advanced Performance Modification Group (APMG) engineered the upgrade, enabling existing HondaJet owners to enhance their current aircraft with several new performance and software features.
The announcement was made today at the NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE).
The APMG Performance Package offers current HondaJet owners the opportunity to implement Honda Aircraft Company’s latest performance upgrades on their aircraft; among those are a shorter takeoff field length, an increased maximum takeoff weight and more mission capabilities.
The package also features many Garmin G3000 avionics software updates, including, but not limited to, advanced integrated Take Off & Landing (TOLD) calculations, increased connectivity with Flight Stream 510 compatibility and an enhanced electronic checklist.
“As Honda Aircraft Company continues to pioneer new technologies in aviation, the APMG was created to ensure that all HondaJet owners, current and future, would have the opportunity to experience newly-created state-of-the-art technologies, regardless of when they purchased their aircraft,” Honda Aircraft Company CEO and President Michimasa Fujino stated.
He added, “The purpose of the APMG is to implement new features on original aircraft for the benefit of customers around the world.”
