The Hawker 700 is a twin-engine mid-sized jet which was originally developed and built by British Aerospace and is now produced by Hawker Beechcraft. The Hawker 700 and its successor, the Hawker 800, are descendants of the HS-125 originally developed and flown in 1962.
The Hawker 700 was first developed in 1976 as the HS-125-700 and featured updated engines which improved range and fuel economy over the HS-125. A number of variants were introduced over its eight year production lifetime with each model offering different improvements in aerodynamics, engines, avionics or interior design. During those eight years, British Aerospace (BA) built 215 aircraft which included the original, the Hawker 700A and the Hawker 700B. By 1984, BA announced that the HS-125-800, with its numerous improvements, would supersede the 700.
In 1993 Raytheon purchased BA’s Corporate jet division and to align their business jets with the Hawker brand, the HA-125-700 and HS-125-800 became the Hawker 700 and Hawker 800 respectively.
The Hawker 700 offers a luxurious interior design for eight to nine passengers and a crew of two. The stand-up cabin is more spacious than many other mid-sized jets, extremely well-appointed, and features a number of seating arrangements perfect for work or relaxing.
