That's a photo of an early prototype plane - I haven't seen any photos of the HondaJet mentioned in this article yet.

If Honda produces a jet that is 40% more fuel efficient than what is already in the market we'd better watch out they might stop making cars!!!!!! WOW

I'm in the aerospace business and the fact is nobody builds both the engine and the airframe. This is pretty specialized stuff and nobody even attemps to master both areas...that is until Honda. THIS IS BIG!

BMW was originally a company that produced airplane motors during the 2nd World War. thus, the BMW badge which symbolizes an airplane propeller.

and like FM3 says, not many other companies build both engine and frame, Honda has done it because thats been a long time dream of Soichiro. I doubt BMW would even consider to produce airplanes unless they could profit from it.

does BMW make jet engines anymore?! BMW makes great cars, but i wouldn't say they're the best...i don't want to make an arguement over fit and finish, but my family owns 4 recent models (325i, 3.0i X5, 525, and a M3) and i often see them driving courtesy cars...

Yes, but as I understand it, Honda has no intention of making airplanes.
Nobody buys unproven technology, so Honda had to build their own airframe (impressive, of course). But they just want to show it off.
At the end of the day, they want to supply engines to somebody else who builds airframes.
(Kind of like Honda Marine engines...)

Geeze, land, sea, air...what isn't Honda into?

There has been a lot of talk about cheaper small jets making air taxi service more common. More than one company has been working on the idea. Engines have been a problem. If Honda comes up with a winning engine and this class of plane is as successful as the builders hope, it could be big even if they don't do air frames.

BMW made planes before they made cars there symbol (the roundel) represents a rotating prop, they were banned from making planes after the USA disarmed germany after world war 2(planes included) and thats how they started making cars

I am a pilot in Canada and I can assure you that Honda will build their own airplane (frame and engine) You don't invest millions of dollars in research and development to put an airframe to the dump. They have just made an incredible breakthrough in small business jet. It's the first time I see an airplane with it's engines mounted on pylons like this!!!

And if the fuel consumption appears to be right and the price for the plane in the region of 1 million $$. This should make a big step forward that we have waited for a long time in the aviation business. This should be the death of piston twins!!!
