How the idea behind HondaJet started with a sketch in the middle of the night
It’s a business that could find a home anywhere in the world, yet it landed in the Triad and could be a major force over the next several years.
HondaJet is bringing jobs to the area while transforming the future of aviation. From research and development to manufacturing, Neill McNeill will take a look at the company’s impact on the Piedmont tonight at 10:00 in his Newsmaker segment.
Michimasa Fujino, the company’s CEO, told Neill McNeill the idea behind HondaJet popped in his head after he went to bed one night. He turned on the light and drew the first Hondajet on the back of a calendar.
Tonight at 10:00 on FOX8, Neill McNeill will give us the first look inside a full-scale model of the aircraft.
“It’s really pretty amazing—with just about every technological implementation you can imagine, including smartphone and tablet Bluetooth utilization,” McNeill said.
