Jon Wells, Honda Aircraft Company
Jon Wells has been with Honda for 16 years, and he currently works at the Honda Aircraft Company facility in Greensboro, North Carolina, where he is responsible for ensuring that all of the tools necessary to build the exciting new HondaJet are ready to go. An avid fan of flight, Wells inspired to join the HondaJet team when it debuted.
“The aircraft first flew in 2003 and I was actually at American Honda on the automotive side. When I saw it fly, I knew that my ultimate goal was to combine what I do with my passion for aviation,” Wells said.

Take a visual tour of our onsite Research and Development facility:
Situated inside a massive steel structure weighing 75 tons, a full-scale HondaJet goes through flight simulations to ensure that it stands up to the rigors of a lifetime’s worth of operation. Each test mimics an entire flight, from taxi to takeoff and airborne maneuvers.
Honda Aircraft engineers have created an exhaustive set of flight profiles to simulate various missions, from short-hop flights to travel in stormy weather.
The rig is outfitted with a series of actuators that create most of these simulated conditions by exerting forces on various parts of the plane. Working together, the actuators create a full spectrum of conditions, from wind gusts to a bumpy runway.
