The “Upgrade Package for the HondaJet Elite”, presented by Honda Aircraft Advanced Performance Modification Group will be available as an upgrade for the HondaJet Elite model. The performance upgrade will increase the maximum takeoff weight by 200 pounds allowing for up to 120 nautical increased range at a higher payload or an additional passenger.
Additionally, the package features avionics software upgrade options including installation of FAA Datacom and ACARS, which replace traditional voice commands with text-based messaging to improve the clarity and efficiency of communications. Finally, combined with the newly introduced Advanced Steering Augmentation System (ASAS), not only will the customer experience reduced pilot workload, but they will also benefit from an increased crosswind operational capability. The Upgrade Package expands possibilities with no compromises in baseline efficiency.
“We are thrilled to announce the Upgrade Package to our HondaJet Elite owners,” said Honda Aircraft Company Head of Commercial Business Unit and VP of Customer Service, Amod Kelkar. “This upgrade package is another testament of our continued efforts in Customer Service to provide upgrade options to our ever-growing fleet. We remain committed to setting a new standard in business aviation by advancing innovative design and engineering solutions to our existing customer base.”
The Upgrade Package will be available for installation at Honda Aircraft Company’s Authorized Service Centers around the globe, beginning in the U.S. later this year. For more information, contact a local HondaJet Authorized Service Center.
