Honda Aircraft Company Delivers 200th HondaJet Honda Aircraft Company marked a landmark event recently involving the delivery of the 200th HondaJet. It all started in late 2015 when the company received Type Certification for the aircraft and started deliveries. Since then there have been a few iterations -upgraded versions of the original-. In May 2018, the company introduced the HondaJet Elite, with an extended range of 1,437 nm, new avionics features, and new styling. In May 2021, the company announced new upgrades to the design with the HondaJet Elite S, which increased the aircraft’s maximum takeoff weight by 200 lbs. and added new avionics features to further expand operational capability and reduce pilot workload to maximize safety.
