I find it refreshing to read that CEO Fujino takes the time to make a comment on this air center agreement and is also the reciepient of the SAE award for all the unique innovation this aircraft brings to the aviation world.

I recently spotted one getting refueled at our local airport and I believe once the public gets familiar with this aircraft they will want to have them made available for a more 'private feel' to the cattle car experience of boarding a feeder airline to main hubs.

This aircraft may very well be the affordable answer to let the flying public have a 'private corporate jet' experience in their lifetimes. I look forward to the day where enough of these are made and become even more affordable that they will be the next step in a families transportation needs and considered a necessity not a luxury.

I have even joked to my family members that the next time there is a wedding, re-union or a funeral perhaps they could swing by in a Honda jet and bring us all together for the event and avoid the airline and airport bustle all together.

Time will tell. My hat is off to CEO Fujino and Honda for being innovative, thourough, and forward looking enough to open up aviation to a whole new realm of utilization and possibilties.
