Interesting, since all HondaJets are manufactured in USA., Greensboro North Carolina

Good for them! Less money on F1 and more on HondaJet seems like a good choice, would love to fly in one.

I guess its an option for those who can spend $5000 an hour for flying lol!

So my 5 hour flight costs me $25,000?

Perhaps for someone with hundreds of millions of dollars and needs to choose which jet to buy to go to his private island.

I wonder: Does the HondaJet have VTEC? :P

Regardless, great work Honda!

A friend of mine who is a former USAF pilot and now flies private jets, jokingly said the HondaJet is the closest a civilian can get to flying a fighter jet.

Personally I'm waiting for the Type R model to come out.

Good for Honda, i am sure their jets are as good as their automobile, FLAWLESS.

Spread the cost across the seven or eight passengers the aircraft carries. You buy these for the convenience they offer businesses, the ability to take managers and owners across country fast to attend meetings and deal with clients using out of the way airports that do not have commercial flights without having to deal with all the headaches of flying on a scheduled airline and then lining up ground transportation to get to your eventual destination. Every business has to weigh the pros and cons of buying and using such an airplane. Often they are operated by charter companies who serve multitudes of businesses this way.

If I had 500 million yen lying around, the HondaJet would be on my radar. Lol.

Do they have a 2,500,000 yen Civic model?

Old TV ads in the US: "You meet the nicest people on a Honda".
