Honda Aircraft recently handed over the 200th HondaJet to a customer. The milestone comes six years and two variants after the light jet’s first delivery on Dec. 23, 2015. That first delivery came 14 days after then-FAA Administrator Michael Huerta presented the clean-sheet twinjet’s type certificate to Honda Aircraft president and CEO Michimasa Fujino.

The model will boast midsize-jet range and cabin amenities, but with a light-jet-class airframe.

Assembled at Honda Aircraft’s facilities at Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro, North Carolina, the HondaJet has undergone several enhancements beginning with the HondaJet Elite, which the company introduced in May 2018. Improvements on the Elite included an extended range of 1,437 nautical miles and new avionics features and styling. The Elite was followed up with Elite S, which was introduced in May.

Upgrades on the Elite S include increasing the aircraft’s takeoff weight by 200 pounds and new avionics features that further expand the jet’s operational capability and reduce pilot workload for improved safety. Certified in more than 13 countries, the HondaJet fleet has accumulated more than 98,000 flight hours.
