Hawker 1000 is a twin-engine corporate jet. It was originally developed by British Aerospace as the BAe 125 and is being assembled by Hawker Beechcraft.
The Hawker 1000, as well as the smaller Hawker 800 and its modifications, was created based on the BAe 125 business jet sold by British Aerospace to the Raytheon group and then to Hawker Beechcraft.
The first flight of the prototype aircraft BAe-125-1000 (G-EXLR) made on June 16, 1990. The current name – Hawker 1000 aircraft received in 1993 after Raytheon bought the British Aerospace’s Corporate Jets. On March 26, 2007, Raytheon sold its aviation business, resulting in the formation of a separate Hawker Beechcraft Corporation.
With one of the most spacious interiors of modern mid-size aircraft, the aircraft offers customers an excellent combination of comfort, speed, and cost-effectiveness. With a flight range of 5750 kilometers, it is quite able to satisfy the needs of those who need fast transcontinental flights without intermediate landings. The aircraft allows you to fly across Russia, Europe, and the Middle East without landing at an average speed of 820 km / h. In terms of flight range and cabin comfort, the Hawker 1000 can compete with aircraft such as the Cessna Sovereign, Challenger 300 and Challenger 604.
The cabin can accommodate up to nine passengers. Its comfortable interior, with a longer and wider cabin than most midsize jets, can serve as a conference room, living room, or office directly in flight.
Also, the aircraft allows passengers to stand in the cabin at full height, has a buffet with a full range of options, and a luggage compartment with a volume of more than 2 cubic meters.
By 2013, more than one and a half thousand aircraft of various modifications were produced.
Hundreds of these machines are operated by airlines and private operators.
