Business Jet Innovators

The Honda Aircraft Company has recreated the business jet from the ground up with a truly clean sheet design. 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.

According to the company, the HondaJet incorporates many technological innovations in aviation design, including the unique Over-The-Wing Engine Mount (OTWEM) configuration that dramatically improves performance and fuel efficiency by reducing aerodynamic drag. The OTWEM design also reduces cabin sound, minimizes ground-detected noise, and allows for the roomiest cabin in its class, the largest baggage capacity, and a fully serviceable private aft lavatory. The HondaJet is equipped with the most sophisticated glass flight deck available in any light business jet, a Honda-customized Garmin® G3000. The HondaJet is Honda's first commercial aircraft and lives up to the company's reputation for superior performance, efficiency, quality and value.

Innovative

A breakthrough in aeronautics, the OTWEM 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.

In aerodynamics and Natural Laminar Flow technology, these advancements 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 composite fuselage, which is created from a cutting-edge combination of co-cured integral structure and honeycomb sandwich structures. This results in increased cabin space and better performance.

The highly advanced cockpit is built for optimum safety based on thoughtful ergonomic design and state-of-the-art situational awareness. First, it gives the pilot more space and greater visibility; next, fewer intrusions and more intuition. The Garmin® G3000 next-generation all-glass avionics system brings pilot and aircraft closer together with touch-screen technology. The dual touch-screen controllers and three 14-inch landscape high-resolution displays offer enhanced navigation, and flight planning and control. The cockpit is unquestionably built around the pilot to enable either single-pilot or dual-pilot operation of the HondaJet.

Comfort

It's called cabin space, and HondaJet provides more of it 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 and a host of other modern amenities.

Efficiency

The Honda Aircraft Company is committed to protecting the environment. Crafting and constructing a jet that can use much less fuel as usual reflects this commitment. Beyond fuel efficiency, Honda reduced noise emission with the help of OTWEM. Commitment to the environment and the future of tomorrow's generations continues with the "Blue Skies for Our Children" initiative, which represents Honda's environmental vision of a society where future generations can experience the joy and freedom of mobility while living within a sustainable society.
