GREENSBORO, N.C. — Greensboro-based Honda Aircraft Co. is reportedly delaying efforts to obtain Federal Aviation Administration certification for the HondaJet until the end of 2014.

According to the Triad Business Journal, FAA certification is required for Honda to start putting its $4.5 million lightweight business jet into the market.

The company previously reported it was expected to obtain certification by halfway through 2013.

The HondaJet is already being produced at the Piedmont Triad International Airport.

GE Honda Aero Engines, the company that will produce engines for the jet, now hopes to obtain FAA certification by the end of 2013, Honda Aircraft spokesman Andrew Broom tells the Business Journal.
