  1. Honda Aircraft To Build HA2600 In Greensboro
    The State of North Carolina is giving incentives to Honda Aircraft for them to produce their newest aircraft, the HA2600 in Greensboro. The airframer already makes the Honda Jet there. Honda Aircraft plans to invest $55.7 million to accommodate that production. North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said the addition of the 2600 line will create 280 jobs and increase the company’s total investment in the state to more than $335 million. "This decision shows our state’s commitment to developing a skilled workforce, not only in the key industry of aerospace with a flagship brand like HondaJet, but in the entire advanced manufacturing arena," he said.
  2. Current estimates suggest that the latest Honda Aircraft project would help increase the state’s economy by $2.37 billion. The North Carolina Economic Investment Committee approved a Job Development Investment Grant that authorizes a potential reimbursement to Honda Aircraft of more than $3.4 million over 12 years. In addition, the state set aside $381,600 to help the community finance necessary infrastructure upgrades. "The state of North Carolina provides a rich talent pool and tremendous support from our local community and having our facilities located right next to the Piedmont Triad International Airport is an ideal location to develop and produce our new light jet," said Honda Aircraft president and CEO Hideto Yamasaki.
