GE Honda Aero Engines progresses toward certification of the HF120 engine, though deliveries of production HondaJets are delayed until 2012. Testing has included operation to 46,000 feet and at high Mach numbers, as well as performance, transients, air starts, and extreme hot and cold conditions. Other component tests including operation in crosswind and hail ingestion have been conducted at GE’s Peebles, Ohio, facility.
