There were multiple variations of HiHi JET throughout 2016 exchanging and trying out new members - often swapping members with unit Classmate J. The unit was first announced with five original members Hashimoto Ryo, Inoue Mizuki, Haba Yuki, Igari Soya and Iwasaki Taisho in the October 23 2015 launch of the magazine Myojo. Although introduced as a five member group, Iwasaki was moved into Classmate J before he could perform on stage and the unit continued as a four member group. On October 26, during JOHNNYS 'World - Johnny's World ", Inoue Mizuki, Hashimoto Ryo, Haba Yuki and Igari Soya announced the formation of a unit specializing in roller skating.

During テレビ朝日・六本木ヒルズ 夏祭り SUMMER STATION on July 14th, HiHi Jet became HiHi Jets as new members Takahashi Yuto (originally Classmate J), Sakuma Ryuto (originally HiHi Jet backdancer), Igarashi Reo and Ukisho Hidaka (both temporarily from Classmate J) were added in making the unit a group of 8.

The group's positioning fluctuated between the eight members sometimes grouping Takahashi with the original four and sometimes as secondary performers with Sakuma, Igarashi and Ukisho.

During September 3 - September 30 for the annual DREAM BOYS stage musical (starring Kis-My-Ft2's Tamamori Yuta) Hashimoto, Inoue, Igari and Takahashi Yuto preformed in a temporary unit Johnny's 5/ Jet Boys along with Mr. KING's Takahashi Kaito. The unit Johnny's 5 was based on Jackson Five.

Around September/ October 2016, the stage performance JOHNNY'S ALL STARS ISLAND was announced. The members of HiHi Jets had reduced back to four members and the unit name reversed back to HiHi Jet. Although the original members Hashimoto, Inoue and Igari stayed within the unit, Haba was exchanged with Takashi, while Haba, Sakuma, Igarashi and Ukisho have now been removed from the group. Ukisho Hidaka was moved to new group 東京B少年 with original HiHi Jet member Iwasaki Taisho.

From 16th January 2017, Inoue Mizuki made a formal announcement that during JOHNNY'S ALL STARS ISLAND, the members of HiHi Jet and 東京B少年 would come together to become Universal Boys. Both units currently perform together on Shounen Club (Most notably トーク,BE COOL)

During radio program "Rara! Saturday" (NHK Radio No. 1) on March 3, it was announced that Sakuma Ryuto would be returning to the unit and the name would be changing back to HiHi Jets.

On February 23rd, HiHi Jets were announced to take part in the agency's first YouTube channel for Johnny's Jr alongside four other groups (Snow Man, SixTONES, Travis Japan and 東京B少年) that will start on March 21st 2018.

On June 5th, HiHi Jets alongside 東京B少年 preformed みなみなサマー on June 5th which was the theme song for the Minami Summer" ("TV Asahi Roppongi Hills Summer Festival SUMMER STATION.

From June 9th, HiHi Jets and 東京B少年 were the next generations to bring back original Johnny's Jr. variety show Hadaka no Shounen (裸の少年). The show previously aired from 2001-2003 and then 2004-2009 starring previous juniors before they had their official debut. The new generation of Hadaka no Shounen is now referred to as Second Stage or Phase 2 and airs every Saturday from 10:30AM – 11:10AM JST.

There is a rivalry between HiHi Jets and 東京B少年 and Igari states that "Although we can not win by the number of people (東京B少年 having 6 members against their 5), they don't want to lose by the energy of their group.

On March 1st, they were one of 11 units regularly participating in Johnny's Jr. official entertainment website 'ISLAND TV.'

Sakuma and Hashimoto eventually confessed that the boys on the photos were them. In response to the leak of inappropriate pictures the two of them were suspended from entertainment activities from September 10th until the end of December 2019 and took part community service and activities that the company would decide.
