======================================
ROLE

The HondaJet is Honda's first attempt to enter the small business jet market.
Honda decided to go with an unusual over-the-wing podded engine
configuration. This feature was developed on the innovative Vereinigte Flugtechnische
 Werke VFW-614 decades earlier. It allows for more space within the
 fuselage and reduces drag at high speeds. The fuselage itself is made
 from lightweight composite materials. The wings are made from structurally
reinforced single sheets of aluminum. The use of a single sheet allows
 for a smoother surface than more conventional methods.
Honda claims that the combination of lightweight materials, aerodynamics
and efficient engines gives the HondaJet as much as
35% higher fuel efficiency than similar aircraft.
The aircraft is equipped with a touchscreen 3-display Garmin G3000
glass cockpit system (i.e. most of the cockpit readouts are presented on flat-panel displays).
