With its unique over-the-wing engine mount, HondaJet engineered its breakthrough design 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 a more spacious cabin, noise reduction and increased fuel efficiency.
Natural laminar flow (NLF) maximizes performance
Advancements in aerodynamics and NLF technology were applied to the design of the main wing airfoil and fuselage nose shape of the HondaJet Elite to reduce aerodynamic drag. This engineering innovation contributes to high cruising speed and increased fuel efficiency.
Lightweight structure, heavyweight performance
Unlike many jets that use aluminum, the HondaJet Elite employs a strong composite fuselage that is lighter in weight. The fuselage is created from a combination of co-cured integral structure and honeycomb sandwich structures. This results in increased cabin space, better performance, and greater fuel efficiency.
The HondaJet’s cockpits are built for optimum safety, combining both thoughtful ergonomic design and state-of-the-art situational awareness. Pilots enjoy more space and greater visibility, coupled with fewer intrusions and more intuition. The installed Garmin® G3000 next-generation all-glass avionics system coordinates pilot and aircraft interaction with touchscreen technology. The dual touchscreen controllers and three 14-inch landscape high-resolution displays offer enhanced navigation, flight planning, and control. The cockpit is designed to enable either single-pilot or dual-pilot operation of the HondaJet.
