Honda might be known for its cars, but it’s also making a splash in airplanes with its HondaJet family. The latest addition is the HondaJet Echelon, and it’s designed to fly farther than most private jets in its class.

The Echelon has a few things that set it apart from other light jets. One is the way the engines are mounted. Unlike most private jets, the Echelon has its engines on top of the wings rather than on the back of the fuselage. This design allows for more cabin space and keeps the engines quieter.

There’s a catch, though! Putting engines on top of the wings can slow an airplane down. Honda’s clever solution is to mount the engines on pylons, which keeps the airflow smooth and lets the plane reach high speeds.

The HondaJet Echelon is a game-changer because it can fly farther than any other light jet on the market. With four passengers and a pilot, it can travel a whopping 2,675 nautical miles (almost 4,862 kilometers), which means it can fly across the entire United States without stopping! This is a huge advantage for business travelers who need to get to meetings across the country quickly.

Here are some of the other light jets that the Echelon beats in terms of range:

  • Cessna CJ4 Gen 2
  • Embraer Phenom 300E
  • Pilatus PC-24

So, if you’re looking for a light jet that can take you almost anywhere in the world, the HondaJet Echelon is a great option.
