Introduced in 1983, the The Hawker 800 is a mid-size twin-engine corporate aircraft. It is a development of the British Aerospace BAe 125, and was assembled by Hawker Beechcraft. A total of 650 of this type of aircraft were built by the time production ceased in 2013. The 800 series has a number of modifications and changes over the 700, the most noticeable being the redesigned cockpit windscreen. Accompanying this are a modified rear fuselage fairing, as well as a glass cockpit. The XPR upgrade adds Honeywell TFE 731-50R engines for better performance, while the new factory-engineered winglets create a more efficient wing with improved stability during all phases of flight.
After these upgrades, Hawker introduced the 900XP. True to form, the 900XP retains all of the 850Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s advanced traits (fuel efficiency, aerodynamics, comfort, performance capabilities), but better. The long-range business jet features an enhanced variation of the 850XPÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s winglets, increasing hot/high-altitude and cruise performance and range. On the runway in hot/high conditions, the 900XP requires 1,800 feet less runway for a 2,000 nautical mile trip with six passengers. It can complete coast-to-coast trips, Teterboro to Seattle for example.
