HondaJet

Postby WingAdmin » Thu Dec 31, 2015 3:20 pm



As of this month, after nine years of development and testing, Honda finally delivered its first HondaJet.



It's got quite a few innovations that make it unique, the most obvious being the above-wing pylon-mounted engines. Instead of mounting the engines to the fuselage like most business jets, where the engine mount structure takes up valuable cabin space, they are mounted to the wings. This also makes the cabin quieter, as the engine vibrations are not transmitted directly into the fuselage.

I would think about this one if I had the resources. I would wait until all the reviews and recalls came in though.

Wait a minute here...I don't see the saddlebags on it. Nor do I see an electrically adjustable windshield! I wonder if there are any accessories for it on WingStuff.com yet?

If we were all collectively smart/rich, we'd chip in some $$ and buy one and have a 1 week 'share' in it. Thus for 1 week each year, you can fly around or go someplace in your own executive jet! LOL! :lol:

Write ups on the HondaJet say it is way overpriced at $4.5 million, and besides, I can get a nice luxury jet here in Calgary (with the downturn in oil prices) they are pretty cheap right now...can easily get one for $500-$750K lightly used.
