The ultimate balance of innovation and inspiration - HondaJet. 

Introducing the HondaJet, a breath of fresh air to the ever-evolving aviation industry. With never seen before features such as over-the-wing engines and the use of Garmin G3000 in the cockpit. 

The HondaJet provides a comfortable yet classy cabin and a sensational experience to each and every passenger.  We explore some of the innovative features of the Honda Ha-420 HondaJet below.

Over-the-wing engines

This feature is the result of more than twenty years of testing and extensive research completed by Honda. Not only is it a breakthrough in the industry, it allows more space in the cabin, increased fuel efficiency and cabin noise reduction so you can travel in comfort and style.

Natural Laminar Flow (NLF)

NLF technology has been applied to the design of the main wing and the fuselage nose shape to reduce the aerodynamic drag of the aircraft. This cutting edge innovation allows high cruising speed and increased fuel efficiency.

Composite fuselage

The HondaJet uses a light yet strong composite fuselage, as opposed to aluminium that most jets use. The fuselage is created from a combination of co-cured structures and honeycomb sandwich structures. This cutting-edge design results in increased cabin space, greater fuel efficiency and heightened performance.

Advanced cockpit design

The HondaJet cockpit optimises safety through thoughtful design and state of the art situational awareness. 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, flight planning, and control. This technology enables either single-pilot or dual-pilot operation of the HondaJet. 

By optimising all of these features, the HondaJet outperforms all other aircraft in its class. It climbs and cruises faster, offers more room and less noise, and uses less fuel.

Travel in comfort and style with the HondaJet.

The exquisite, business jet provides much more cabin space than any other jet of its class. Honda wants you to travel in style. The spacious and light jet has many features from the completely adjustable executive seating to the fully private lavatory and a list of other modern amenities.
