Orlando, Florida – Honda Aircraft Co. has expanded sales of the HondaJet to Middle Americas with the appointment of SYI Aviation, based in Panama City, Panama, as the newest HondaJet dealer. SYI Aviation will provide sales, service, and support for the advanced light jet throughout Central America, the Caribbean, and South America, including Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana.

“Our well-received expansion in Brazil last year further solidified the Middle America and South American regions as potential growth markets, and for that reason we appointed SYI Aviation as our HondaJet dealer. With its strong focus on outstanding quality and customer service, SYI will be a valuable addition to the HondaJet dealer network,” said Honda Aircraft President and CEO Michimasa Fujino. “Their experience in the region and track record of partnering successfully with large global companies is a good foundation for a strong relationship with Honda Aircraft.”

SYI was founded in Caracas, Venezuela, and established operations in Panama in 1928. SYI provides infrastructure, products, and equipment in the medical services, machinery, and heavy equipment industry, as well as infrastructure for electric service in more than eight countries.

The HondaJet recently completed a successful demonstration tour in Latin America and South America. Flights were conducted in four countries, traveling more than 14,000nm. The HondaJet was on static display at Latin America’s largest business aviation event, the Latin American Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (LABACE), held in São Paulo, Brazil. The demonstration tour included stops in: Brazil (Curitiba, São Paulo, Goiania, Cuiaba, and Belo Horizonte), Argentina, Chile, and Panama. 

With this addition, the HondaJet dealer network spans 12 territories in North America, South America, and Europe. The company began customer deliveries in 2015.
