Honda Aircraft to commercialize new fuel-efficient light jet

Honda Aircraft Company will commercialize the HondaJet 2600 Concept, an all-new light jet that was first introduced at the 2021 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE). The company also said it will target type certification in 2028 for the new light jet, which represents a new product line for Honda Aircraft Company and will be offered alongside its existing very light jet model, the HondaJet Elite II.


The new aircraft will surpass the performance, comfort, and efficiency of typical light jets by providing a medium-sized jet experience. It is designed to be the world’s first light jet capable of nonstop transcontinental flight across the United States, with a quiet and spacious cabin suited for long-range travel and the ability to accommodate up to 11 occupants. The aircraft is also designed for single-pilot operation.

Additionally, based on the commitment of Honda Aircraft Company to reducing carbon emissions, the new light jet will deliver up to 20% better fuel efficiency compared to typical light jets, and more than 40% better fuel efficiency than medium-sized jets during a typical mission.

Honda Aircraft Company has identified critical suppliers for the new light jet, entering into strategic supplier agreements with Aernnova for aerostructures and components, Garmin for avionics, Spirit AeroSystems for the fuselage, and Williams International for engines. Honda Aircraft Company is finalizing engineering designs for the new light jet, with fabrication activities underway.



People complain about the use of private jets from a resource point of view, and rightly so.
It is really a matter of tons of CO2*/ flight, so using smaller jets such as this one, is not so bad.
If an important person (head of state, CEO of a large corporation) needs to get around on their own schedule, they may as well use them, just not too much!

Hi Jim

We have heard much about aerosols polluting the atmosphere.

Not so much about the damage from ah-sols.

Take a very self important bow, Rishi!
