Everyone likes to fly a jet that takes away from the norm a little bit, right? After all, once you have flown one kind of each class of aircraft you’ve “technically” tried them all, yes?

Preview screenshot

Wrong! This aircraft manages to take the conventional wisdom that would usually accompany most FSX aircraft of this size and style, and throws it all in the bin.

This is an aircraft that takes a rebellious stance towards the norm, and ensures that anyone who tries this out can get something a little bit more unique than the usual business jets we’re all so used to!

However, the most important aspect of flying a Honda jet is the fact that it just feels so different in the cockpit. Whilst it still operates in much the same vein as any other aircraft, the layout and the overall style of the cockpit is a big difference compared to what most of us are used to.

An Advanced Freeware Jet

If you are looking for an aircraft that’s perhaps a bit more simplistic then this might not be for you, though. It does not really do a great job of following the conventional necessities of the typical simulator pilot, but all credit has to go to the developers of this mod for being able to get the right level of detail and accuracy on just about every aspect of the aircraft.

From the way it looks to the way it performs, this is about as close to the tribute act being better than the real thing as you are going to get with a free mod for FSX!

The attention to detail in every way is just so impressive; it’s really easy to see all of the little twists and turns that have been included along the way, giving you all the help that you need in just settling into things and getting used to the way that the aircraft flies.

Of course, the most important thing for most is just how responsive an aircraft is – are you going to feel as if you are flying something that was made by man? If that is your main concern, then you are in luck.

This is a truly epic representative of the aircraft in every single way, and this includes the level of realism that it provides you with. It makes life a whole lot easier this way, giving you total control over what you would be expecting to happen with the aircraft and what is actually happening!

Now, you can balance out the reaction that you expect to get from the aircraft more or less flawlessly. This will really help with the overall way that you fly the aircraft, as well as ensuring that you get used to its nature much quicker.

In general, the Honda jet is a very interesting project that whilst I certainly found it a little bit awkward at first; I was able to easily get to grips with and now use on a regular basis!

This is the best of the business jet add-ons by far. A great little jet to fly. Good instrumentation and VC views. This would be a brilliant addon with two improvements viz altitude callouts on landing and taxi control speed. Perhaps the developer would consider a patch.

JackSat, 18 Dec 2021 18:02:37 GMT

Love this addon. One of my favorite private jets now. Easy to fly and nicely laid out controls.

The interior cabin passenger view is great and very rare among add-ons like this as most just have a view of the wing from the outside. My only main problem is there is no way to open the window shades and they are closed by default. I even tried editing the airplane config file to change the buttons to open the window shades and it still doesn't work.

There is also no option to keep them open in the config for example a line in the config that says 'window shades open=true or false' would have been nice. I would have preferred the buttons just below the window shades to physically operate them while in passenger view.

To the developer in the nicest possible way; PLEASE FIX THE WINDOW SHADE CONTROL I BEGG OF YOU! Or at least update it so they are open by default.

JackSat, 30 Oct 2021 23:06:29 GMT

Very very good addon. It's one of the better private jet addons I've come across and one of my personal faves. VC is well designed & looks great with easy-to-use controls the cabin interior view with visible crew & passenger is a nice touch although it feels like a missed opportunity because there seems to be no way to open up the window shades and all are closed by default making going back there aside for aesthetic reasons pretty much pointless.

A way to press of the up/down buttons just below the window shades would have been a good way to enable window shade control. Even a simple array of buttons or switches that operate the cabin window shades in the VC would have been nice.

One of the most amazing planes that I have downloaded is the very wonderful driving system and made a pleasant trip in Egypt from Cairo Airport to Alexandria Airport Thank you very much Of course, to open and close the curtains, press the SHIFT key, then the E key, then number two, three and four, to open the back and front bags.

mostafa mahmoodMon, 18 May 2020 18:27:46 GMT

The very cool plane I have tried it with its compact size but its performance is great and the sounds are excellent I just did not find how to enable GPS for the trip. Thanks.

DanielThu, 21 Nov 2019 10:40:11 GMT

To all the people moaning about "There's no flight instruments, Only Garmin" Have you ever seen the cockpit of the Real HondaJet? Guess what: There's only Garmins in the REAL one. See Cockpit Photo: https://www.hondajet.com/images/galleries/interior/HI_Cockpit_Day_G_CockpitUpdate_a_806X536_Main.jpg

The real one has Garmin 3000 series, but hey, close enough.

cobraFri, 28 Dec 2018 13:58:07 GMT

can someone tell me how to operate/open the cabin window's curtain?

EdmeisterSat, 03 Mar 2018 03:05:49 GMT

Great plane! Good graphics. Good effects. Good job!

Tom MerrittThu, 28 Sep 2017 23:47:39 GMT

It shows on my aircraft selection screen as "Honda Learjet". I have a feeling that the folks at Bombardier might get pretty cranky about that.

JoeWWed, 12 Oct 2016 15:36:43 GMT

Why no Primary Display? It's not complete without it.

Wild DoktorSun, 23 Aug 2015 04:19:55 GMT

I just discovered this aircraft for fsx. Where's the crossfeed lever/button? This plane only uses fuel from the left tank, even after creating a "fuel crossfeed" hotkey and using it. Anybody else seeing this behavior and corrected it?

Love the fact that it's got the g1000; I added another instrument window so that i can pop the MFD out to another screen.

SeanWed, 08 Jul 2015 13:12:18 GMT

It's been my favorite for many, many years. Rediscovered it recently with my renewed interest in FSX, and it's still by far my favorite and the best freeware add-on aircraft I have tried, and the only one I have kept all these years.

sisterearthTue, 24 Jun 2014 23:47:00 GMT

Nice airplane. I had a wonderful flight and perfect landing! Thanks for sharing

ABSun, 29 Dec 2013 21:33:55 GMT

Love this plane, easy to fly and enjoy all your extra perks. Very easy to download thank you.

KCSun, 23 Jun 2013 19:38:05 GMT

Great plane but no flight instruments i.e. PFD HSI?? Only panel instrument is the Garmin??

radovanbroMon, 23 Jul 2012 21:09:17 GMT

The best plane I have downloaded; has g1000 a vc and vcabin... is it payware?!

Andy645Fri, 03 Feb 2012 00:51:22 GMT

I'm having the same issue with the installer pkg...states it's defective need to redownload. Did that..same issue

masondeTue, 13 Dec 2011 22:48:45 GMT

I tried to download again it says unable to install, installer file is damaged any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?

masondeTue, 13 Dec 2011 22:37:47 GMT

Can anyone walk me through getting this plane downloaded and running. I have luck. I can get it down loaded but not installed. Don't know what I'm doing wrong

AHARON HAR EVENTue, 04 Oct 2011 15:51:31 GMT

Great and free!..Good and clear panels, like the Lady copilot... Only for Jet Intl Airports!

scott carpenterFri, 02 Sep 2011 16:47:23 GMT

All your work is beautiful. You should be proud. Great Job.

Mophead520Thu, 28 Apr 2011 00:34:55 GMT
Great model, easy to fly. Love the co-pilot. Only problem I have is that the model has no flight instruments except the AP/FD, Garmin, and the S/B AH. Give me flight instruments and I'll give it a 10
Cannon_FodderTue, 01 Mar 2011 07:57:16 GMT
The only issue I had was I kept trying to use it on runways that are too short. Once you pick the correct airports its a great aircraft.
jbealeSat, 04 Dec 2010 16:39:41 GMT
i'm lovin it!!!! awsome download.
BBU25Fri, 13 Aug 2010 15:04:49 GMT
Really fantastic.Every thing is clear and fine to fly without no problem.
jwblackFri, 06 Aug 2010 02:31:56 GMT
Cool aircraft, works well, piece of cake download, love those and the co-pilot sweet touch.
RonoThu, 08 Jul 2010 01:31:12 GMT
Excellent machine and one heck of a co-pilot!
jetranger04Sat, 03 Apr 2010 00:24:38 GMT
My new favorite, really nice, thank you!
