First production HondaJet successfully completes its flight

While we still can’t have flying cars, there is this small airplane by Honda coming very soon and it looks clearly much better for flying than any flying car concept we have ever seen.

The first production HondaJet recently successfully completed its first 84-minute flight, climbing to 15,500 feet (2,93 miles), while reaching a top speed of 348 Knots True Air Speed (400mph).

The two GE Honda HF120 turbofans enable the HondaJet to have a maximum cruise speed of 420 knots (483 mph) and a maximum altitude of 43,000 feet, while the travel distance with a full tank is 1,180 nautical miles (1,357 miles).

Seating up to five passengers the HondaJet will be single pilot certified and looks great inside-out and according to Honda is the world’s most advanced light jet.

Honda already has ten aircraft on the final assembly line with first ones expected to reach customers in late 2014.
