HondaJet further delayed till 2012

Honda’s first foray into jet-powered aircraft has struck more turbulence as the company’s new HondaJet struggles to get off the ground. According to recent reports, the world won’t be seeing the aircraft until 2012. The Japanese company had planned to take to the skies with its jet as soon as this year, but two rounds of delays have pushed that date back by a lengthy 24 months. Little is known about the cause of the delays other than Honda has experienced some component issues.

The HondaJet carries a hefty price tag of $3.9 million USD and will be produced in Greensboro, North Carolina, U.S.A.
