Honda Unveils HondaJet Elite II at NBAA-BACE

Plans To Introduce Autothrottle And Emergency Autoland By EOY 2023

Honda Aircraft Company has taken the wraps off the "HondaJet Elite II" -- a newly upgraded aircraft.

With an expanded range of 1,547 nm, the Elite II sports the addition of ground spoilers to complete the performance upgrades, optimizing takeoff and landing field performance.

"The HondaJet Elite II once again pushes the boundaries of its category on all fronts of performance, comfort, and style," said Hideto Yamasaki, President & CEO of Honda Aircraft Company. "We are also excited to take our aircraft forward on the journey of automation by bringing new technologies to the market next year."

Honda also plans to introduce Autothrottle and Emergency Autoland by the end of 2023.

The HondaJet Elite II features a fully redesigned cabin and the introduction of two new interior design options – Onyx and Steel, featuring new surface materials and colors. The cabin redesign led to a modern luxury of flight experience with a holistic approach to comfort that includes a nose to tail acoustic treatment, creating a tranquil space for both passengers and pilots.

Outside, the Elite II introduces a new Black Edition paint scheme that further differentiates the ramp appeal of the aircraft.

Key new features of the HondaJet Elite II:

Performance

  • Range: 1,547 nautical miles

  • Increased Fuel Capacity: additional space to carry more fuel

  • Increased Gross Weight: maximum takeoff weight of 11,100 pounds

  • New Ground Spoiler: optimizes takeoff and landing field performance with increased weight

 

Avionics

  • The Elite II introduces several new advanced features enabling more automation and augmentation, which enhances operational safety and reduces pilot workload for more efficient operations, while bringing new technologies to HondaJet customers.

  • Stabilized Approach – assists the pilot with aural and visual alerts to maintain a stable aircraft state on approach.
  • Autothrottle – reduces pilot workload through the automation of power management based on desired flight characteristics through all phases of flight, allowing for more precise and efficient performance from the aircraft (available first half of 2023).
  • Emergency Autoland – Autoland activates in an emergency situation to autonomously control and land the aircraft without human intervention (available second half of 2023).
