Check out this video from HondaJet about the world's most advanced light jet!

From Honda's website:

The Honda Aircraft Company has recreated the business jet from the ground up with a truly clean sheet design. By mounting engines over the wing, designing Natural Laminar Flow for the wing and fuselage, and applying other innovations, the HondaJet outperforms all other aircraft in its class. The culmination of cutting-edge innovation makes the HondaJet the world’s most advanced light business jet. It climbs and cruises faster, soars higher, offers more room and less noise, and uses less fuel.

A breakthrough in aeronautics, the Over-The-Wing Engine Mount was engineered and proven by Honda after more than 20 years of extensive research and development. This innovative technology not only breaks the conventional mold set by the aerospace industry, but also provides category-leading advancements such as a more spacious cabin, noise reduction, and increased fuel efficiency.

HondaJet boasts a maximum cruise speed of 420KTAS at 30,000 feet and a maximum cruise altitude of 43,000 feet. It has a range of about 1180 nm, with an impressively short takeoff distance of <4000 feet and a landing distance of less than <3000 feet.

HondaJet will be making a number of appearances this spring and summer at events including:

  • Aero Friedrichshafen, April 15-18, Friedrichshafen, Germany
  • EBACE 2015, May 19-21, Geneva
  • CBAA 2015, June 16-18, St. Hubert, Quebec
  • EAA AirVenture, July 20-26, Oshkosh, Wisconsin
