HondaJet - Review

Drive a Honda Accord, Fly a Honda Jet

Honda's promise of a small jet built in the U.S. came closer to reality when groundbreaking ceremonies for the new manufacturing plant took place at the Honda Aircraft Company's Greensboro, North Carolina campus in August 2009. The 250,000 square foot production facility, which will cost approximately $60 million to construct, is expected to boost the number of Honda Aircraft Company employees to over 300 people. The HondaJet facility will be built using construction techniques that are environmentally friendly, and is designed for efficient heating and cooling once completed in early 2011. Similar to Honda's cars, the jet has innovative design features including a patented over-the-wing engine mount to maximize carrying capacity and fuel efficiency as well as minimizing drag. As a result, the HondaJet boasts far better fuel efficiency, more available cabin and luggage space, and a higher cruising speed than other conventional aircraft in its class (Very Light Jet). So if you win the lotto and feel like it's time to step up from a Civic, trade it in for a HondaJet.
