Honda Aircraft Company will showcase the upgraded HondaJet Elite S with a special paint scheme at the 2021 Experimental Aircraft Association’s (EAA) AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin from July 26th – August 1st, 2021.
The HondaJet Elite S, the latest edition of the HondaJet, was unveiled at the company’s virtual event in May 2021.
The HondaJet Elite S features several upgrades that expand operational capability and improve flight operation. Its increased maximum takeoff weight of 200 lbs. allows customers to fly up to 120 nm (138 mi) further at a higher payload, or take an additional passenger during their typical mission.
Other upgrades include several new avionics features and the newly introduced Advanced Steering Augmentation System (ASAS) further reduces pilot workload and maximizes safety.
“Last year was challenging for many of us, as most industry events and airshows were canceled, so we’re excited for Honda Aircraft’s return to in-person events with the latest HondaJet Elite S,” said Honda Aircraft company president and CEO Michimasa Fujino. “I’m looking forward to EAA Oshkosh attendees seeing the Elite S for the first time since our virtual launch announcement.”
Honda Aircraft also announced that it will fly its aircraft to the show using Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), further demonstrating business aviation’s commitment to carbon neutrality. The HondaJet Elite S will fly on SAF provided by Koury Aviation, one of the first SAF providers to general aviation on the U.S. East Coast, located right next to Honda Aircraft headquarters at Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro.
