The Honda Jet, the world’s most advanced light business jet aircraft
The HondaJet is an advanced light jet with revolutionary technology and design attributes that help it achieve far better fuel efficiency, more available cabin and luggage space, and higher cruise speed than conventional aircraft in its class.
HondaJet Outstanding Innovations
The Honda Aircraft Company has recreated the business jet. By mounting engines over the wing, designing Natural Laminar Flow for the wing and fuselage, and applying other innovations, the HondaJet outperforms all other aircraft in its class. The culmination of cutting-edge innovation makes the HondaJet the world’s most advanced light business jet. It climbs and cruises faster, soars higher, offers more room and less noise, and uses less fuel.
The HondaJet is immediately recognizable for its Over-The-Wing Engine Mount (OTWEM) which was engineered and proven by Honda after more than 20 years of extensive research and development. This innovative technology not only breaks the conventional mold set by the aerospace industry, but also provides category-leading advancements such as more spacious cabin, noise reduction, and increased fuel efficiency.
Advancements in aerodynamics and natural-laminar flow technology were applied to the design of the main wing airfoil and fuselage nose shape of the HondaJet to reduce aerodynamic drag. This cutting-edge engineering innovation contributes to high cruising speed and increased fuel efficiency.
Unlike many jets that use aluminum, the HondaJet employs a lighter yet strong carbon fiber composite fuselage. The fuselage is created from a cutting-edge combination of co-cured integral structure and honeycomb sandwich structures.This results in increased cabin space, better performance, and greater fuel efficiency but it also reduces weight for optimal performance.
The state-of-the-art glass cockpit includes the latest version of the Garmin G3000™ avionics platform with features and capabilities unique to the HondaJet. A 40/60 display configuration provides an easier visual scan for pilots and contributes to improved situational awareness and safety by allowing the pilot or co-pilot to select and show additional information within a customizable tile.
Honda does not disappoint in terms of the Honda Jet’s performance. Its maximum cruise speed at 30,000 feet is 420 knots true airspeed. It has an initial climb rate of 3,990 feet per minute.
The Ultimate Balance of Innovation and Inspiration
HondaJet provides more cabin space than any other jet in its class. But to you and your fellow passengers, it’s much more than a cabin. It’s a workspace, thinking space, quiet space, and a relaxing space. These are the true inspirations behind the HondaJet’s interior and why Honda designers meticulously considered every detail, from the completely adjustable executive seating to the fully private lavatory.
The HondaJet features an executive seating for four in a classic club configuration, plus optional side-facing fifth seat. The Over-The-Wing Engine Mount gives you more externally accessible cargo space, total 66 cubic feet, in the nose and aft and displaces noise emissions away from the cabin and offers a much quieter ride.
Fully private aft lavatory with flushing toilet is standard with solid-surface vanity and optional elegant, cobalt-blue washbasin. And as the ultimate accessory, use your mobile device to control the HondaJet cabin’s audio, lighting, temperature, and electrochromatic window shades.
Honda is redefining the business jet acquisition experience by providing a unique state-of-the-art design. The HondaJet is a combination of style, comfort and innovation, without sacrificing performance or efficiency for US $4.5 million with FAA certification.
