The HondaJet Elite is the fastest, farthest and highest-flying plane in its class. The HondaJet Elite incorporates Honda Aircraft Company's many technological innovations, including the unique Over-The-Wing Engine Mount (OTWEM) configuration, Natural Laminar Flow (NLF) nose and wing, and composite fuselage. The aircraft is also powered by the GE Honda Aero Engines HF120. The HondaJet Elite also uses composite material in its fuselage, which reduces aircraft weight and allows for an integrealfuselage design, resulting in increased structural longevity as well. All ofthese advancements contribute to the aircraft's superior performance, unparalleled efficiency and maximized fuselage space, making the aircraft's cabin the largest in its class. The HondaJetfleet is currently comprised of over 150 aircraft worldwide and it has been the most delivered light jet in its class in 2017, 2018, and 2019.
