This is definitely a very light and compact jet, would love to see this jet around in the near future.

The only reason people are going to vote for this is because it has 420 in the name.
Nicely put together little request! I will vote!
Amazing, that from lawnmower/snowblower to jet, Honda has all of your equipment needs handled.
(All my votes currently for lighting, but would like to see Honda in the fleet).
This Hondajets would bee nice for Olympic Games…
This would be an absolute blast!!
If I see a few more votes pop up within the next few hours, I’ll put my own in, too.
Good luck!! :)
I really love small jets! I have a vote for the cirus vision already. If only I had another for the Honda jet. We really do need more light jets!
Small jets like the Cirrus Vision SF50 and the HA420 HondaJet are really unique. I also like the design of how the engine is mounted on top of the wing instead of fuselage as shown here.
This reminds me of something but I can’t think what.
FO: can I start the engines?
Captian: blaze it
Since the devs wanted to add a GA aircraft, I decided to vote for this! Very unique and special aircraft.
Ok what’s up with these car manufacturers making planes? First Mitsubishi, now Honda? XD
Um, you do understand that these are manufacturers. Not specifically light vehicle. Mitsubishi and Honda make many different units. As do most manufactures.
CEO: what should we make for our company?
Employee: how about motorcycles?
CEO: Good idea. Anything else?
Employee 2: how about smartphones?
Employee 3: and toasters:
Employee 4: what about dishwashers? And sinks? And even windows?
CEO: all good ideas. Let’s just make everything!
COO: let’s throw in a couple of planes and cars while we’re at it!
at meeting for plane stuff
What should we call our plane that we didn’t steal the design?
How about the 420! All the hip kids are saying that today.
Good idea. Maybe even put on a eel-Oom-in-aut-Ie sticker while we’re at it
Does it have VTEC? (jk)
YES! IF needs this sooooooo badly!!
This jet need more love, bump.
Thanks for bumping the topic… Although this is a pretty cool private one pilot jet.
Honda makes anything these days. They can stick a car in your garage, a boat in your dock and now a plane in your garage. As @ChiefPilotLachy said, manufacturers like this may mainly build light vehicles, but they also produce other machinery, which is about 25% of their income.
For me it will not be a great feature fore IF, but thats my opinion. We already have de Citration X, and that’s like the same as this one.
Your logic does mean that the 787,737,A320,md11,… are irrelevant because they are basically the same.
I said its my opinion…
And no, cause this kind of jets will not be used really much I think.
