Innovation 3 New Design Integrally Molded Carbon Composite Fuselage

The HondaJet's fuselage employs a carbon composite for a strong, lightweight structure. For assembly of the fuselage, Honda developed integral molding technology in which two types of panel—honeycomb sandwich panels and stiffened panels—are combined to create the aircraft body. The fuselage's carbon composite material and integral molding technology not only contribute to weight reduction, but also give the HondaJet its sleek external design.
