Julian and Kim MacQueen of Pensacola, Florida, were the first to circumnavigate the globe in a HondaJet, the first commercial aircraft offered by Honda Aircraft of Greensboro. The MacQueens said they purchased the craft for their business, Innisfree Hotels, because of its quality and innovative design. The trip was for business and pleasure, as the MacQueens performed cross-cultural research on hotels and Julian, a pilot, enjoys air sports. Dubbed “Around the World in 80 Stays,” the voyage took in 44 airports in 28 countries. Honda benefited through demonstration flights and increased visibility. Honda Aircraft Company claims the HondaJet, for its class, is the “fastest, highest-flying, quietest, and most fuel-efficient jet,” and it’s equipped with, “the most sophisticated flight deck available.” Its main innovation is the Over-the-Wing Engine Mount, which affords roomier cabins and additional storage space in addition to the technological edges. During the trip, the MacQueens set five speed records.
