Honda is best known over the last 60 years for its dependable and innovative automobiles and had a desire to expand into the business jet industry. The Honda Jet was in development over many years and type certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was received in 2015. This aircraft is in the very light jet (VLJ) category of business jets.
Honda Jet’s revolutionary design mounts engines on pylons attached to the upper wing which is unlike other business jets. The spacious cabin maximizes the interior space measuring 17.8 feet in length, 4.94 feet in height and 5 feet in width, increases aerodynamic efficiency by 5%, high speed drag is eliminated, and is flown at faster speeds with exceptional fuel efficiency.
The Honda Jet will accommodate two crew and five passengers or one crew and six passengers. The interior provides style, comfort and innovation which includes reclining leather seats, cup holders, tray tables, extra leg room and multiple storage compartments throughout the cabin as well as providing 9 cubic feet of external baggage compartment in the nose and a 57 cubic feet external baggage compartment in the aft.
Maximum cruise speed at 30,000 feet is 422 knots true airspeed and an initial climb rate of 3,990 feet per minute will not disappoint owners when it comes to Honda Jet’s performance.
Owners will not sacrifice performance or efficiency while flying the stylish, comfortable and innovative Honda Jet.
