  1. HondaJet Attains Two Speed Records Recently
    The Honda Aircraft Company is proud to announce that the HondaJet recently set two speed records. The small light jet sounds strange making speed records but remember think of it as in-class performance. The records involve two flights one from Teterboro in New Jersey to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The other was a flight from Boston, Massachusetts to Palm Beach, Florida. The United States National Aeronautic Association presented the records to Honda Aircraft Company during the National Business Aviation Association’s (NBAA) Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition in Orlando, Florida.
  2. In setting the record between New Jersey and Florida, the HondaJet departed Teterboro Airport at 2:15 p.m. EST on April 9, 2016 and landed at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport at 5:06 p.m. Despite average headwinds of 60 knots (nearly 70 mph), the flight took two hours and 51 minutes at a cruising altitude of 43,000 feet with the HondaJet surpassing the existing record from Teterboro to Fort Lauderdale. The HondaJet achieved a maximum ground speed of 414 knots (478 mph) for this flight. For the Boston to Palm Beach record, the HondaJet departed New Bedford Regional Airport at 7:18 a.m. EDT on July 19, 2016 and landed at Palm Beach International Airport at 10:16 a.m. Factoring average headwinds of 30 knots (35 mph), the flight took two hours and 58 minutes. The HondaJet achieved a maximum ground speed of 422 knots (486 mph). The HondaJet is the first aircraft in its class to officially achieve the Boston to Palm Beach record.
