We take the joy of freedom of movement to the skies
Aircraft and aircraft engine development has been an important R&D theme for Honda since 1986. Honda has been active in this field over the decades with the first flight of the HondaJet in 2003 and the establishment of the Honda Aircraft company in 2006. The HondaJet is a very light business jet with excellent fuel efficiency, high flight performance and a spacious cabin. Due to these and other features, The HondaJet became the most delivered aircraft in its category for the fifth consecutive year since 2017.
Pursuing the Long-standing Dream of
Advancing Personal Mobility to the Skies
Honda continues to take on new challenges to deliver to its customers the joy of personal mobility.
While Honda has developed a range of products for land and sea—including cars, motorcycles, and outboard engines—since its foundation the company has had a vision of taking personal mobility to the skies. In order to bring this dream to life, Honda began research into aircraft in 1986, over 30 years after the company’s foundation.
Under Honda’s user-first philosophy, we have refined our technology to deliver unprecedented new value. A compact, lightweight, small-sized business jet with ample space and superior comfort—we believed such an aircraft would offer faster, more comfortable, and fuel-efficient flight, increasing convenience while reducing costs and environmental impact. We started by rethinking conventional aircraft design, and developed our aircrafts with our own unique technology.
