Aviators complete record-breaking HondaJet Elite flight
After they receive their HondaJet type rating, Jet It HondaJet owners join the Red Jet Squadron. Jon Halpern was introduced to RJS when he sold a jet to join Jet It in 2019, and he has now broken a speed record.
Glenn Gonzales and Jon Halpern flew from Denver to Maine in under four hours.

Jet It owner and Red Jet Squadron pilot Jon Halpern, from New York City, along with co-pilot and Jet It CEO, former US Air Force F-15C fighter pilot, Glenn Gonzales, have made history by flying a Jet It HondaJet Elite from Denver, Colorado to Bar Harbor, Maine, a distance of 1,662 nm, in three hours 59 minutes.

Jet It currently operates a growing fleet of HondaJet Elite aircraft spread out across the US, of which owners are allotted a number of utilisation days where they spend $1,600 an hour. As they travel with Jet It, qualified owners have the freedom to travel as pilot or passenger, for no additional cost. After they receive their HondaJet type rating, owners join the Red Jet Squadron. Halpern was introduced to the Jet It RJS when he sold his previous jet to join Jet It in 2019.

“As an aircraft owner and pilot of 20 years, Jet It is the perfect solution that I have aspired for when looking for an ownership opportunity,” he states. “Jet It offers all the freedom, flexibility and adventure of aviation, for a fraction of the cost and with none of the headaches. I fly state-of-the-art equipment, have on-demand access to seasoned professional crews and benefit from corporate flight department-level training, maintenance and operational support. All my costs are fixed, with none of the surprises that are common with private ownership.”

Gonzales holds four other world records in aviation, two of which are in the HondaJet. He is proud to share this first Red Jet Squadron record with Halpern. “Jet It is about creating one-of-a-kind memories and experiences,” he says. “As a Red Jet Squadron member, becoming a world record holder is just another value-add that only Jet It provides.”
