Take a closer look at Honda's revolutionary mini private jet


For more than half a century, Honda has proven time and time again it's capable of building efficient, effective, and immaculately engineered products. One of the company's most successful creations is the Honda Civic - a compact car that has become an industry icon and a benchmark to which all of its competitors compare themselves.


After 30 years of development, Honda may have recreated that Civic magic in the form of the HondaJet. Honda hopes the $4.5 million aircraft will revolutionize the entry-level jet market the same way the Civic upped the ante for small cars when it debuted in the 1970s.
