The HondaJet Elite II

The HondaJet Elite II is the class’s fastest, 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 result is an airplane with the largest cabin in its class with outstanding performance, unmatched efficiency, and maximal fuselage space.

The interior of the HondaJet Elite II has been completely remodeled, and two new interior design options, Onyx and Steel, with new surface materials and colors, have been added. With a comprehensive approach to comfort that includes a nose to tail acoustic treatment, the interior redesign created a contemporary luxury of flying that is peaceful for both passengers and pilots.

Outside, the Elite II debuts a striking new Black Edition paint scheme that further distinguishes the aircraft’s ramp appeal.
