HondaJet is most delivered aircraft in its class
For the fifth year in a row HondaJet was the most delivered aircraft in its class, with 37 handed over around the world. Total accumulated fleet hours exceeded 100,000 in January.
Honda says the HondaJet Elite S is the fastest, farthest and highest-flying aircraft in its class.

The HondaJet was the most delivered aircraft in its class for the fifth consecutive year, based on data provided by the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA). During 2021, Honda Aircraft Company delivered 37 aircraft to customers globally.

"I am humbled and honoured that the HondaJet continues to be selected by our owners and operators as we expand our global fleet," says president and CEO Michimasa Fujino. "Being the best-selling aircraft in our class for five consecutive years is a reflection of the Honda Aircraft team's commitment to offering a product of the highest performance and quality, and our maturity as a leader in the aviation industry. We will continue to bring new value to the industry and provide superior service and support to customers."

Honda Aircraft celebrated several milestones recently, including delivery of the 200th HondaJet in late December and the unveiling of its nextgen HondaJet 2600 Concept business jet. The FAA awarded it the Diamond level AMT employer award in recognition of the skill and professionalism of its maintenance technicians, and the global presence of the HondaJet further increased when it received Thailand type certification.

The worldwide HondaJet fleet surpassed 100,000 flight hours in January.
