    there are always a few of these sitting around outside their hangar in greensboro NC. cool looking planes if you ask me. no matter your opinion of honda you gotta admit they usually make a huge place for themselves in any product market they enter. i expect to see a lot more of this plane in the near future.

    Its been a long time coming; like most aircraft designs. Now comes the hard part; getting it certified and finding a market. If you go to the official website there is a video to mark the "first flight."

    That's a BIG party for a "first flight" given the risks involved. Being a test pilot is always about risk management. Someone at Honda has a lot of faith and a BIG ego if it was truely the first flight.

    Sure hope it's not powered by the same wimpy engine that powers the Civic
    Wait, what?
