Just to clarify, this is the first flight of a conforming flight test aircraft. The proof of concept HondaJet has been flying for some time.

Still great news. Thanks for posting!

This is the first flight for the HF120 engines.

How close were the earlier "non-conforming" jets to the current "conforming" model?

Seems they've blocked it from Flightaware. N420HJ...photos here:

Also, I hope the engines perform better than the Hondajet website: http://hondajet.honda.com/

That's a shame. The proof-of-concept aircraft isn't blocked:

Is it just me or is the HondaJet one of the sexiest airplanes? I just love the idea of putting the engines above the wings. I usually spend quite a while drooling on the one the bring to EAA every year.
