Carbon Composite Fuselage
The HondaJet fuselage is made of a carbon-composite material that is both stronger and lighter than the aluminum used in most other aircraft. Our engineers developed a manufacturing technique that combines two types of structural styles, a honeycomb sandwich panel that can be shaped for laminar airflow, and a stiffened panel designed for lighter weight, less noise and future design flexibility.
Its carbon composite fuselage makes the HondaJet lighter, faster, and safer than similar sized aircraft. Additionally, the precise contour of carbon composite over aluminum allows for the natural laminar flow surface of the aircraft.
