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.

It outperforms its competitors with its; Maximum Cruise Speed of 422 KTAS, Maximum Cruise Altitude of FL430. Rate of Climb of 3990 ft / min, Takeoff distance of <4000 ft and its Landing distance of <3050 ft.

Efficiency

As sustainability and global warming become a more and more pressing matter every day, companies need to take responsibility. The Honda Aircraft Company is committed to sustainability, this is evident through the HondaJet which has high fuel efficiency. Not only this, the HondaJet engine mount means that the jet produces a lot less noise emission than others in the market.

Amazon and TotalEnergies have announced a collaboration, helping a move to renewable energy and accelerating TotalEnergies digital transformation

TotalEnergies today announced a strategic collaboration with Amazon. Through this new collaboration, TotalEnergies will contribute to Amazon’s commitment to power its operations with 100% renewable energy, while Amazon will help TotalEnergies accelerate its digital transformation.

With Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a key cloud provider, TotalEnergies will accelerate its move to the cloud, boosting its IT transformation, the digitisation of its operations, and its digital innovation. In particular, TotalEnergies’ Digital Factory will benefit from the breadth and depth of AWS services including infrastructure, speed, reliability and innovative services. 

“Working with TotalEnergies on innovative cloud technologies to ‎drive reductions in carbon emissions and present new renewable energy sources is a tremendous opportunity. This collaboration will not only accelerate TotalEnergies’ migration to the cloud but also contribute toward Amazon’s commitment to power our operations with 100% renewable energy,” said Kathrin Buvac, Vice President, AWS Strategic Industries.

 

Moving towards a greener future 

 

TotalEnergies and Amazon have signed power purchase agreements (“PPAs”) for a commitment of 474 MW of renewable capacity in the US and Europe, and expect to expand their cooperation in the Middle East and Asia Pacific. By supplying renewable energy and potential battery energy solutions, TotalEnergies will contribute to Amazon’s commitment to power operations with 100% renewable energy by 2030 and reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2040.

“TotalEnergies is deeply committed to reducing the carbon emissions of its operations and supporting its customers to do the same around the world. By signing this agreement, we are proud to enter into this key collaboration with Amazon and to accompany them on their journey to carbon neutrality.” said Stéphane Michel, President Gas, Renewables & Power at TotalEnergies. “We are also counting on Amazon and AWS to help us advance our exponential shift in the speed, scale and advancement of digitalisation.”

As part of its ambition to get to net-zero by 2050, TotalEnergies is building a portfolio of activities in renewables and electricity that should account for up to 40% of its sales by 2050. At the end of 2020, TotalEnergies’ gross power generation capacity worldwide was around 12 GW, including 7 GW of renewable energy. TotalEnergies will continue to expand this business to reach 35 GW of gross production capacity from renewable sources by 2025, and then 100 GW by 2030 with the objective of being among the world's top 5 in renewable energies.
