Natural Laminar Flow
"Laminar flow" describes a smooth and uninterrupted airflow on the surface of an aircraft. In contrast to "turbulent flow," a laminar airflow produces far less air resistance and aerodynamic drag.
The HondaJet's airfoil and fuselage nose were developed over years of careful research to determine the optimal shape for laminar flow. The result is a new "natural laminar flow" technology which reduces drag and improves aircraft speed and fuel efficiency.
