Honda business jet to take maiden Japanese flight in April

TOKYO -- The Honda Motor group's small business jet will soar into Japan's skies for the first time in a demonstration flight this April.

     The HondaJet is in line to obtain final approval from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration in late March, with deliveries to American customers starting later in the first half. HondaJet Aircraft President Michimasa Fujino revealed the time frame.

     Honda currently has no plans to sell the aircraft in Japan.

     The HondaJet will seat seven, including the pilot, and is said to be 10% more fuel-efficient than the competition. The company has received more than 100 orders to date.

     "In the long run, we aim to sell it in Japan as well," Fujino said.
