With Honda's commitment to User-First, we have continued to develop our technologies to provide unparalleled new value. It was a small, light, compact commercial jet with plenty of room and great passenger comforts - we thought such an airplane would provide a quicker, more convenient and fuel-efficient ride that would increase passenger ride and reduce cost and pollution. Initially, we rethought traditional airplane designs and designed our airplanes with our own proprietary technologies.
HondaJet redefines the small size jet. Honda is constantly facing new opportunities to give its clients the pleasure of individuality.
The HondaJet Elite is Honda's newest light jet.
At EBACE 2018, Honda Aircraft presented a new model of its light jet, the HondaJet Elite. The Elite is more than just a beauty enhancement, it extends the light jet's capabilities and adds interiors and important upgrades to the Garmin G3000's flying decks. Whereas the revised HondaJet Elite aircraft approval was awarded by the FAA on May 2 and is also EASA-certified, Honda Aircraft has been working on enhancements since the first jet received approval in December 2015, said Michimasa Fujino, CEO and Chairman of the Board.
The HondaJet requires less take-off and landing strip and can continue to climb thanks to extra propellant capability and improved aerodynamics, such as the elimination of wake vortices at the tail and front winglets and a slightly broader uplift. At the tail, in well as removing the swivel generator, a slight lengthening of the stabiliser peaks and a reduction of the hinged gap were also introduced.
Enhancements made the whirl generator superfluous and allowed an energised flux across the stabiliser without the equipment. Peak take-off weights are up to 100 lbs, but some weight-saving actions cut about 107 lbs from the kerb load, for a load capacity boost of more than 200 lbs. Reduced weights were achieved through the elimination of eddy current generator and small but accumulative optimizations of system and structures.
Supplementary gasoline is 16 gal, obtained by remodeling the rear hull tanks to fill the vacant rear hull area. An illuminated pressure button has been added next to the refuelling compartment, and when pressed before refuelling, it alerts the refuelling compartment to decelerate the rate of refuelling when the refuelling compartment begins to fill.
In this way spilling of petrol is avoided, as at this point the rate of petrol penetration must be reduced so that the filling of the tanks can be carried out correctly without overflow. Also, the bottleneck has been newly designed to facilitate the insertion of the injector. Internal and external noises have been significantly reduced by a one-of-a-kind construction characteristic, a punched aluminium comb composite motor intake, designed to reduce noises as the blades pass through.
NASA's research into NASA's research into reducing aircraft emissions is the basis for this development, although Honda Aircraft's use of this development is patented and patented. Sound attenuation also helped to reduce overall body mass by enabling some isolation to be removed from the hull. Fujino explains that the motor intake near the ventilator has several thousand cavities "to reduce ventilator noise".
The HondaJet's unmatched motor mount above the wings significantly lowers the low-frequency vibration as it is not transferred to the body, while the ventilation channel sounds are produced at a higher frequenc. The Honda aircraft designers carried out demanding tests to insulate this sound and create the special punch patterns to reduce the high frequencies of vibration. This results in a significant decrease in high-frequency interference, although Fujino did not want to give a number due to the invention.
G3000 cockpit enhancements included quicker viewing processor, power scheduling for all stages of flying, and calculation of take-off and landing distances for slope length, V-speed, incline and descent, and more. Purchasers have new interiors choices such as a Bongiovi system with speakerless, converter-based, immersive voice that is less weighty than the pre-view four-speaker soundtrack.
Larger rugs are part of the elite interiors, and purchasers can now choose two-tone leadership leathers.
