The range of 1437 nautical miles makes the HondaJet Elite the farthest-flying aircraft in its class. With the extended range passengers can fly easily from London to Istanbul, New York to Houston, or Tokyo to Guam. The highly customized Garmin® G3000 avionics suite is designed so that pilots can reduce flight planning time, enhance situational awareness and safety, and deliver a more enjoyable flight experience to everyone on board. As for efficiency, this jet is designed to be significantly more fuel efficient than other business jets in its class. It is estimated to use an average of 8,250 gallons fuel/year less than other aircraft in its category.
The cabin is finished to a very high level of style and luxury with a myriad of options to fit the particular needs of each owner. The option for a fully enclosed belted lavatory is a feature that most light jets do not have. It even features an industry-first Bongiovi Aviation speakerless in-cabin sound system, which is integrated into the interior panels and adapts to various flight conditions, bringing passengers a best-in-class, immersive audio experience throughout the entire cabin. With a price of $4.5 million and operating cost of $1,135 per hour, the HondaJet Elite is an attractive option for medium sized companies and senior executives.
