This concept jet aims to drastically change the aviation market. To do this, Honda has designed a few major upgrades. A carbon composite fuselage is one of the main changes. The carbon composite fuselage is lighter than traditional aluminum.
Another major change is the Natural Laminar Flow technology that Honda has implemented in this concept. This technology, implemented on the wing and the nose, allows less drag than the traditional skin of an aircraft.
The aircraft is designed to cut Co2 emissions significantly during use. In addition, the service ceiling for the 2600 concept is a staggering 46,000 feet. Pair that with a 2,600 nautical mile range and a plus 425 knot cruise, and the HondaJet 2600 performs like a midsize jet.
