HondaJet is the latest light business jet entering the market. Able to take advantage of conveniently located though small airports it is designed to fly four persons in comfort while facing one another in club style seating—with another seat opposite the entry door (this door is traditionally located at the front left of main cabin) plus the copilot’s seat can be used instead for a passenger. The HondaJet has the range to commute from Miami to New York above airline traffic and quickly. The composite fuselage structure allows for generous lavatory and cabin space as do the above wing mounted engines. The uniquely mounted  engines are located to reduce cabin noise as well as provide constructive interference (in this case not an oxymoron) regarding the wing for a higher and more fuel stingy cruising speed. The cockpit windows are designed to enhance pilot sight lines and generous luggage space is both forward and aft. Honda has made a beautiful jet as good for commuting as it is for recreation.
