posted on November 23, 2015

Japanese auto maker Honda has announced it will start delivering its first aircraft to customers, possibly within the year.

The 7-seat jet has drawn much attention for its unique design that has the engines mounted above the wings. Honda says the aircraft is the fastest and most fuel-efficient in its class.

It says the jet has completed all function and reliability test with more than 3,000 flight hours and is soon expected to obtain type certification from the US Federal Aviation Administration.

The company says it has received more than 100 orders from western firms and wealthy individuals and has set an initial sales target of about 100 jets a year.
