Honda Aircraft Company announced Thursday that it has delivered 200 of its HondaJet HA420 series aircraft, marking six years since the original model received FAA type certification.
“Since 2017, the HondaJet has been the most delivered aircraft in its class, and we continue to see high demand for the aircraft, thanks to its unmatched performance, comfort, efficiency, and innovative design,” Honda Aircraft Company president and CEO Michimasa Fujino said in a statement.
With a total time of 98,000 hours logged across the fleet, the model has reached a level of maturity—and certifications in at least 13 countries as of this posting.
Powered by the GE Honda Aero Engines HF120s, in the over-the-wing-engine-mount configuration, the latest edition of the HondaJet, the Elite S, has a range of 1,437 nm and a 200-pound maximum takeoff weight increase. The Elite S was announced in May 2021.
New features were also added to the Garmin G3000 avionics suite on the flight deck, including data comm capability, and an Advanced Steering Augmentation System.
“The delivery of the 200th HondaJet is a reflection of its superior capabilities and reliability, as well as the extraordinary customer support of our team members. We will remain committed to our customers by ensuring that the HondaJet Elite S continues to set a new standard in business aviation.”
