It's unique because the engines are attached to the wings, not the fuselage. Furthermore, the engines are further outboard than those a typical business jet. May want to research a little before you go spouting off.

Ever seen a VFW-614? It had over-the-wing engines. I hope Honda has more luck than VFW-Fokker had- they only built about a dozen 614s, all told.

"Jim Hoyda -you are an arrogant ass! Must be a damn kid."

You make a statement like that and I'm the arrogant one?

The tons of empty Adam Aircraft-built brand-new hangars at KAPA are a shameful disgrace. Over-spending on stuff they didn't have revenue to pay for, killed 'em. They could have done what they were doing in rented hangar space, without a fancy new corporate office building back there on the road behind the airport, etc... if they'd have just matched their spending to their real growth vs. their projected growth...

The aircraft is nice looking and clean. Should compete favorably with the Cessna Mustang. Mustang is slow and eats more fuel but it is certified for single pilot where the Hondajet requires a crew. If Hondajet were single pilot certified they would have a powerfull weapon in the market of wealthy business owners with excessive ego and desire to fly for fun. I wish them well in their jet category. I have a type rating on the Citation and the joke was to look out for birdstrikes from the rear.

I believe you will now find it sigle pilot certified.

In 2006 the sales started at 3.65 million USD, now with 100 plus aircraft on order,
the current list price for a HondaJet is 4.5 million USD.

While the design should cut down on cabin noise and any vibration, I'm not really liking the design.

UK Formula One Champion Jensen Button is the HondaJet EU launch customer - he ordered two of them, the first delivery to Jensen is scheduled for late 2012.

The HondaJet prototype first flew in 2003 and has been attending major aviation events in the USA since 2005.

My friend worked at Avtel in Mojave - in the late 90's they bought a T-33 and modified it to test the HondaJet's wings, and a Boeing B727 as a test bed for the Honda Turbo Fan engine.

So it's been around for quite sometime, and coming to an airport near you - soon!!!!
