Honda is all set to make its presence felt in the air with its brand new luxury Jet. Named as HondaJet, Honda says, it is designed to carry six to seven people at a given time and are planning to sell them to first time buyers who are on a look-out for smaller jets .
The Jet can speed upto 420 knots (about 0.63 Mach) and gets power from a pair of specially designed turbofans developed through a joint venture with General Electric.
The engine powering the jet has recently received its FAA certification and to make it easier for the customers to buy the jet, Honda will provide financing in the US. Customers will be given the option to finance the $4.5 million Jet from the Japanese automaker’s own Honda Finance Corp unit.
When released for public sale in 2015, HondaJet will change the world of private aviation. HondaJet will prove to be a cost effective competitor in the economy- driven world of charter, corporate lease and fractional executive jet ownership.
Honda Aircraft Company intends to produce and sell 70 to 100 aircraft per year when Greensboro meets full production schedule.
