Honda Motor Co.’s first jet plane made its maiden flight Thursday as the company seeks to boost its reputation for cutting-edge technology.

The seven-seat aircraft took off from Sendai and landed at Tokyo’s Haneda airport Thursday afternoon, said Kosuke Kachi, a Honda spokesman. The company is in line to obtain final approval for the plane from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and plans to start deliveries to U.S. customers later this year.
