If you thought the all-new Honda NSX and Civic Type-R models were a long time coming, wait until you read about this. It was back in 1986 when Honda started thinking about small aircraft and jet engines.

And now - 28 years later - Honda’s first production aircraft has taken to the skies, with the first production HondaJet completing its maiden voyage at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014 in America. Move over Type-R, your time as the thing we love most about Honda may be coming to an end.
