Honda Aircraft CEO Michimasa Fujino wins international innovation award

Greensboro-based Honda Aircraft Co. President and CEO Michimasa Fujino has been honored with the 2014 Award for Innovation in Aeronautics by the International Council of the Aeronautical Sciences, company officials said Wednesday.

Fujino received the award at the 29th ICAS Congress being held in St. Petersburg, Russia, this week. He was recognized by ICAS for his pioneering contributions in the design and development of the HondaJet and its over-the-wing engine mount configuration.

“I am very honored to receive this prestigious recognition in aeronautics,” Fujino said. “We had a vision to design a high-tech aircraft that would set a new standard in business aviation. To have Honda’s research and development capabilities recognized among the world’s most respected aerospace companies and society is significant for me.”

Honda, a wholly-owned subsidiary of American Honda Motor Co. (NYSE: HMC) that employs more than 1,000 in Greensboro, expects to begin delivering its $4.5 million lightweight jet to customers by early 2015.
