All HondaJet HA-420 models are now supported by ForeFlight Runway Analysis product, which helps HondaJet pilots efficiently plan for takeoff and landing using ForeFlight’s integrated obstacle analysis capability. ForeFlight already supports enroute performance planning and weight and balance calculations for the HondaJet, making it an all-in-one solution for HondaJet flight planning with the addition of Runway Analysis that provides extra safety and efficiency benefits for HondaJet pilots.

Honda Aircraft Company President & CEO Hideto Yamasaki, commented: “We are excited to work with ForeFlight to create new values in business aviation. Building on Honda’s longstanding approach of ‘Safety for Everyone’, Honda Aircraft Company will consistently put resources to evolve and set new industry standards for safety and operational excellence.”

Tim Schuetze, CEO of ForeFlight, said: “We are thrilled to be collaborating with Honda Aircraft Company to provide safer and more integrated flight planning solutions to our joint customers. The team at Honda has gone above and beyond by providing digital aircraft performance data to help our engineers ensure the utmost quality and reliability of our Runway Analysis product. We look forward to continued collaboration to elevate the experience of HondaJet pilots everywhere.”

ForeFlight Runway Analysis models are available for the HondaJet HA-420 models. Individual HondaJet pilots can purchase Runway Analysis licenses for their respective models as part of their ForeFlight subscription plan at foreflight.com/buy, while organizations operating HondaJets may contact [email protected] to demo and purchase Runway Analysis.

ForeFlight Runway Analysis transforms the tedious task of calculating takeoff and landing performance into an integral and effortless part of any jet pilot’s preflight workflow. Built directly into ForeFlight Mobile, planning can be done well in advance of a pilot boarding the aircraft. Runway Analysis seamlessly incorporates relevant flight plan data – departure and destination airports, the planned route, forecast weather, fuel at takeoff and landing, weight and balance outputs based on passenger, payload, and fuel details, etc. – streamlining and automating the process. Pilots need only select their departure runway for ForeFlight to perform a sophisticated obstacle analysis, producing results in seconds and automatically re-running the calculation with any subsequent change to the flight plan.

Following the signing of a data license agreement in May to develop Runway Analysis models for HondaJet, the two companies worked closely together to verify the quality and accuracy of the finished models. Honda Aircraft provided digitized high-resolution performance data for their aircraft in lieu of scanned AFM pages, allowing ForeFlight’s aircraft performance engineers to bypass the lengthy digitization process and immediately begin building the Runway Analysis models. This also guaranteed the highest degree of accuracy from the beginning by avoiding potential errors associated with manual digitization, poor quality scans, AFM print errors, etc.

ForeFlight is proud to support Honda Aircraft Company’s Flight Operations department pilots with its Dispatch flight planning, ForeFlight Mobile EFB, and Runway Analysis solutions to streamline company flight operations and demonstrate Honda aircraft performance in a quick and easy way to customers.
