Hawker 800XP 850XP and 800XPR

Hawker 800XP VIP Transport jetThe Hawker 800XP, 800XPR, and 850XP are twin engine mid-sized corporate jets built by British Aerospace (BA) for Hawker Beechcraft.  The Hawker 800XP has proven to be one of the most successful business jets produced by BA and the the 850XP and XPR simply offer more of what pilots and passengers have loved about the family of jets for the last 50 years.

The Hawker 800 jet was originally developed by BA as the HS-125-800 as an upgraded successor to the HS-125-700 business jet.  In 1993 Raytheon purchased BA’s Corporate jet division and to align their business jets with the Hawker brand, the HS-125-800 and HS-125-700 became the Hawker 800 and Hawker 700 respectively.   The Hawker 800XP was introduced in 1995 as a replacement for the Hawker 800 which itself had a very successful 8 year production run.

Thus the 800XP is a third generation model in the series and offers all the features that made its predecessors so successful along with significant improvements to cruising speed, range, weight limits and operating economy.

The 850XP was launched by Hawker in 2006 and is essentially the same aircraft as the 800XP except the engineers re-introduced winglets seen on earlier and subsequent models. The winglets add range and climb performance because they act to deliver the aerodynamic benefits of a larger wing, but with less induced wingspan stress.

In 2011 Hawker Beechcraft introduced the 800XPR with yet again redesigned winglets and more powerful engines.  The XPR offers longer range, better performance, lower operating cost than the XP.

In developing the Hawker 800XP, the 800 was given more powerful, fuel efficient engines, and a different wing to achieve greater loading capacity and longer range.  For example, when carrying full passenger load, the range can be an astounding 2,900 miles.  The 850XP and XPR deliver even more range with little compromise elsewhere.  And although the useful load for these aircraft is higher than for previous models, the jets can take off from fields shorter than usually required for aircraft with its range.

The cabin size is identical to the 800 and the configuration is similar, albeit with the upgrades and finishing touches expected of a late model jet.  The soundproofing is excellent, with ambient noise not reaching above that of a normal conversation.

The Hawker 800XP series provides you everything you’d expect in a mid-size luxury jet but with the added performance and range rarely found in its class.
