French company Wijet recently took delivery of its first HondaJet and has begun flying charter customers in Europe. The company’s second HondaJet should arrive shortly, according to a Wijet

Unlike many jets that use aluminium, the HondaJet employs a lighter yet strong composite fuselage. The fuselage is created from a cutting-edge combination of co-cured integral structure and honeycomb sandwich structures. This results in increased cabin space, better performance, and greater fuel efficiency. Advancements in aerodynamics and NLF technology were applied to the design of the main wing airfoil and fuselage nose shape of the HondaJet to reduce aerodynamic drag.

The HondaJet cockpit is built for optimum safety based on thoughtful ergonomic design and state-of-the-art situational awareness. The Garmin® G3000 next-generation all-glass avionics system brings pilot and aircraft closer together with touch-screen technology. The dual touch-screen controllers and three 14-inch landscape high-resolution displays offer enhanced navigation, flight planning, and control. 

The first Wijet HondaJet is operating from the company’s Paris Le Bourget headquarters. The aircraft operator certificate under which the HondaJets are flying is listed as Luxembourg-based Flying Group Lux. Customers will be able to charter the Wijet HondaJets for flights almost within all Europe.
