Honda Motor has partnered with light plane manufacturer Piper Aircraft to manufacture its own light jet airplane equivalent of the Honda Civic.
Honda will establish a new U.S. company for the venture, with production likely to start in 3 to 4 years, after going through FAA testing and certification process. The 7-seat HondaJet features innovative aerodynamics for increased fuel efficiency and performance, and a new jet engine designed and developed by Honda. Buyers will be able to place orders by the fall of 2006.
Boy, I'd hate to stall in one of those things...
Honda takes to the air!
