HondaJet

The HondaJet is now the fastest aircraft in its class, setting record times for two recognized routes: Teterboro, New Jersey to Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 2-hours and 51-minutes; and Boston, Massachusetts to Palm Beach, Florida in 2-hours and 58-minutes. It boasts a maximum cruise speed of 422 knots (486 mph) while soaring to a maximum altitude of 43,000 feet, with an NBAA IFR range of 1,223 nautical miles (1,408 miles). “We chose several of the busiest business aviation airports with extremely popular routes to demonstrate that the HondaJet will get customers where they need to be faster than any other light jet. These missions prove just how dramatically HondaJet design innovations like the over-the-wing engine mount increase performance and fuel efficiency over other light jets,” said says Honda Aircraft President and CEO, Michimasa Fujino.
