Otwem: Over the Wing Engine Mount by HondaJet.

Challenges Convention. Invigorates Performance.

Over-The-Wing Engine Mount (OTWEM), a breakthrough in aeronautics engineered by Honda after more than 20 years
of extensive research and development, strays from the conventional mold set by the aviation industry.
Combined with Natural Laminar Flow (NLF) technology and a composite fuselage,
OTWEM has led to the creation of the world’s most advanced light jet.
