HondaJet Elite S named Best of the Best
In this year's Robb Report, the HondaJet Elite S has been recognised for innovation in technology, performance and design. It is, according to the publication, the Best Light Jet.
Over-the-wing engine mount, natural laminar flow nose and wings plus a composite fuselage contribute to superior performance, efficiency and fuselage space.

The HondaJet Elite S, the Honda Aircraft Company's latest model, has been named Best Light Jet in the Robb Report's 34th annual Best of the Best Issue.

"We are honoured that the HondaJet Elite S has been recognised with another prestigious award for our continuous innovation in technology, performance and exceptional design since the foundation of the HondaJet," says president and CEO Hideto Yamasaki. "The HondaJet Elite S represents not only our dedication to offer products of impeccable quality, but our continued effort to improve lives through personal mobility."

This is the second time the HondaJet has won Best of the Best, having previously taken the title in 2007 when it was an experimental aircraft. This repeat recognition demonstrates that the upgraded model has once again exceeded expectations and continues to set new industry standards.

"Our team at Robb Report has followed the HondaJet since it was first introduced in 2003, and we feel the Elite S model is a particularly strong addition to the HondaJet family due to the step changes in this model over the previous generation, including 200 extra pounds of payload, improved avionics and new colour options," says editor in chief Paul Croughton.
