Luxury & ComfortAll Around the GlobeShort Overview
The Honda HA-420 HondaJet is a light business jet manufactured by the Honda Aircraft Company in North Carolina, USA. Development of the aircraft began in 1997 and was concluded in 1999. Its inaugural flight occurred on December 3, 2003, and it obtained its FAA type certificate and was delivered in December 2015. As of the end of 2023, there have been 250 jets delivered.
This aircraft, designed to accommodate seven to eight passengers, features a composite fuselage and an aluminum wing. It is equipped with two GE Honda HF120 turbofans that are uniquely mounted on pylons above the wing. With a cruising speed of 420 knots (780 km/h) and a range of 1,400 nautical miles (2,600 km), the HondaJet offers great performance. Moreover, it has received numerous accolades for its aeronautic design and innovation.
The HondaJet is a very light jet with a low-wing monoplane design. It features a composite fuselage and aluminum wing. The unique Over-The-Wing Engine Mount (OTWEM) configuration places the engines on pylons above the wing, maximizing cabin space. This configuration minimizes wave drag at high speeds by superimposing the airflow over the wing with the airflow around the engine. The nose and wing are designed for laminar flow, and the main fuselage has a constant profile, allowing for potential future stretching. The HondaJet utilizes computer simulations and wind tunnels to achieve its optimal engine placement, wing, and fuselage design. It has a retractable tricycle landing gear with single-wheeled main and nose landing gear. The aircraft is powered by two GE Honda HF120 turbofans, developed through a partnership with GE Aviation. The HF120 engine features a single fan, two-stage compressor, and two-stage turbine. It received FAA type certification in December 2013 and production certification in 2015.
