Honda follows Bombardier’s CPO lead

Canadian OEM Bombardier launched its Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) programme providing a ‘like new’ offering to clients for re-marketed examples of its aircraft family in July 2021. Two year later, Japanese manufacturer Honda Aircraft is doing the same. Its CPO offers an OEM route to clients in Asia, Europe and the Americas looking to purchase a used Honda aircraft. Covering its very-light HondaJet aircraft, to qualify for the accreditation each HondaJet must first pass a full, pre-purchase inspection covering more than 208 points on the aircraft. All CPO aircraft will also be included on the manufacturer’s FlightReady and Engine Maintenance Care programmes, which are transferable to the purchaser. Honda Aircraft COO Amod Kelkar said: “As demand for the HondaJet continues to rise, pre-owned aircraft has become an increasingly important entry point into the HondaJet community.”
