HondaJet Type Certificate Granted

Good for them!
It took 30 years and nearly $2 billion, but Michimasa Fujino’s obsessive quest to design and build his own jet finally came to fruition on Wednesday, when the innovative HondaJet received final type certification from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration.
While that's critically important, what HondaJet needs now is the production certificate. Until they get that, an FAA inspector or a designated rep must sign off the airworthiness of each airplane. That, for a jet, is a costly endeavor.
