During the development of the original HondaJet, Michimasa Fujino, president and CEO of Honda Aircraft Company, understood that certain characteristics baked into the jet's design might be well-suited to sensitive passengers. In a conversation with Flying, Fujino describes in particular how the noise signature within the cabin would create a more comfortable environment for transporting patients. "When I design aircraft, I want to be sure that the fundamental aircraft design has a strong advantage compared to existing aircraft," says Fujino. "Speed, efficiency—those things an aircraft designer pays a lot of attention to—but not only those numbers. I was very finicky about cabin comfort. For example, [in] the HondaJet design, by mounting the engine over the wing, [the cabin] is really quiet, but not only quiet—we are also looking at the whole frequency range. Low frequency is directly related to fatigue, and high frequency is more annoying. It's hard to explain in a conversation, but if you fly the HondaJet for two hours, and if you fly another light jet for two hours, your body fatigue level is very different. So, I think this aircraft design can be used for other purposes, like medevac." He also discussed the opportunities to demonstrate the airplane's viability for organ transport, particularly in the Japanese market, where such operations face real challenges.
