Honda's Growing Home

Honda Aircraft is adding to its already expansive home at Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro, N.C. In addition to the administrative, production, and R&D facilities already at GSO, it is opening a new customer and aircraft service center. 


The HondaJet maker now has 600,000 sq ft under roof and its parking lots are so jammed with the cars, trucks and SUVs of its 800 employees that it's pouring more macadam. 

The ultra-modern, ultra-clean facilities -- sans the new customer/maintenance center down the road -- are well presented in the company's slick video of the light jet's first flight. Certification and first customer delivery are now expected in 2014.
