Able to carry more and fly further.
The new HondaJet Elite S has been revealed three years after the original Elite was introduced back in 2018. This new model has an increased maximum takeoff weight of 200 lbs, which translates into either an additional 138 miles of flight thanks to more fuel or include an additional passenger. The new HondaJet also has new avionics that ditch the traditional voice commands with text-based messaging for the sake of clarity and efficiency. Coming with the Elite S are new paint schemes: Gunmetal, Luxe Gold and Deep Sea Blue. When introduced, the Honda Aircraft Company unveiled a HondaJet Elite S in a special paint scheme which can be seen up above. There's no word on if this paint scheme will be an option for customers.
"Since its introduction in 2018, the HondaJet Elite has achieved the best performance in its class while also being the most efficient, and with the new Elite S, we take another step forward in expanding the aircraft's capability," said Honda Aircraft Company's President and CEO Michimasa Fujino. "As a result of the innovation, design and engineering on the new Elite S, we are once again setting a new standard in business aviation."
