Honda’s first ever, $4.85 million jet just set two speed records
Called the HondaJet, the aircraft first got approval to fly by the Federal Aviation Administration on December 9 2015, and deliveries began in the US just before Christmas day. Honda has been touting the jet as the fastest in its class, and secured two speed records on flight paths in the US to back up that claim.
The HondaJet broke an existing record for its flight between New Jersey’s Teterboro Airport and Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport with a flight time of two hours and 51 minutes. It also set a record between Boston’s New Bedford Regional Airport and Palm Beach International Airport with a flight time of two hours and 58 minutes. – READ MORE
