The HondaJet Elite II, the company’s most recent development, made its public debut today at the 2023 European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, Switzerland. The HondaJet Elite II will be on display from May 23 to 25 at EBACE’s public days.
The HondaJet Elite II, which has a range of up to 1,547 nautical miles and can fly farther than any other aircraft in its class while emitting less greenhouse gases, strengthens the HondaJet’s position as the most fuel-efficient jet. With the most recent HondaJet Elite II, Honda Aircraft Company continues to show its dedication to sustainable aviation and the environment.
The HondaJet Elite II has achieved type certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the United States and is soon to receive type certification from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). HondaJet’s global fleet now numbers 230 aircraft and has flown more than 170,000 hours. There are now 20 HondaJets in operation across Europe. Honda Aircraft Company has expanded its authorized service center in Europe by twice and opened a flight training facility in Farnborough, UK, to better serve its local clients.
The HondaJet Elite II is the class’s quickest, highest, and most maneuverable aircraft. Many of Honda Aircraft’s technological advancements are included in the HondaJet Elite II, such as the unusual Over-The-Wing Engine Mount (OTWEM) arrangement, Natural Laminar Flow (NLF) nose and wing, and composite fuselage. The GE Honda Aero Engines HF120 are used to power the aircraft as well. The aircraft’s improved performance, unequaled efficiency, and maximized fuselage capacity all result from these developments, and making the aircraft’s cabin the largest in its class.
