August 13, 2018 / KATE SARSFIELD
Honda Aircraft has begun deliveries of the HA-420 HondaJet Elite, with an initial example of the upgraded entry-level business jet – carrying the registration N-112HM – handed over on 3 August to an unnamed US customer. The Elite was unveiled in May as the first major revamp to the HondaJet since the type entered service in late 2015. The $5.25 million aircraft has a host of new features, including an auxiliary fuel tank that increases range by 230nm (425km) to 1,440nm, and a quieter, revamped interior featuring a small galley and a lavatory with a belted seat.
