The Ultimate Balance of Innovation and Inspiration
The original HondaJet introduced a number of innovations to aviation inherited by our current models. Discover what makes the HondaJet the most technologically advanced aircraft in its class.Brochure
Over-The-Wing Engine Mount
The Over-The-Wing Engine Mount was engineered and proven by Honda's extensive research and development. This innovative technology provides category-leading advancements such as a more spacious cabin, noise reduction, and increased fuel efficiency.
Natural Laminar Flow
Advancements in aerodynamics and NLF 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.
The HondaJet cockpit is built for optimum safety based on thoughtful ergonomic design and state-of-the-art situational awareness. Honda and Garmin developed a highly customized, next-generation all-glass avionics system that brings pilot and aircraft closer together with touch-screen technology. The cockpit is unquestionably built around the pilot to enable either single-pilot or dual-pilot operation of the HondaJet.
Unlike many jets that use aluminum, the HondaJet employs a lighter yet strong 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.
