Raytheon Aircraft Certifies Hawker 850XP

Raytheon Aircraft has certified the newest aircraft in the Hawker family, the Hawker 850XP. With Raytheon Aircraft designed winglets, the aircraft is the next evolution of the highly successful Hawker 800-series. It is part of a strategically planned sequence of upgrades for the Hawker fleet of airplanes that began with the Hawker 400XP in May of 2003.

The winglets are constructed of lightweight, composite material and are installed to enhance aerodynamic performance as well as provide for a great ramp presence. The custom designed, outwardly-canted winglets were sized to provide distinct performance improvements while not impacting airframe inspection schedules. The range of the Hawker 850XP has seen a 100 nautical mile increase. Other performance improvements include up to eight percent improvement in time-to-climb plus faster airspeeds and block speeds. The winglets also incorporate state of the art LED position lights that have MTBF (mean time between failures) of 5000 hours.

“The Hawker 800-series, capturing the perfect balance of speed, range, and comfort, has a long history of continual evolution. These upgrades were selected to meet the demanding requirements of today’s aircraft operators ensuring that it remains the world’s best selling midsize jet,” said Brad Hatt, president and general manager of Hawker Business at Raytheon Aircraft Company.

The Hawker 850XP introduces new scheduled maintenance interval improvements from 300 hours to 600 hours with only a detailed walk around inspection required at 300 hours, reducing Hawker operator maintenance costs and downtime.

The Hawker 850XP will include the same improvements found in the Hawker 800XPi announced at the 2005 European Business Association Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, Switzerland. The improvements feature an upgrade to the existing Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite with IFIS (Integrated Flight Information System) standard and optional features. It also includes a new updated interior that already set the benchmark in class for quality and comfort, and the new Airshow 21 cabin management system. In addition to these enhancements, the Hawker 850XP comes standard with a 5-year warranty on the airframe, engines, and avionics.

Deliveries of the Hawker 850XP will begin immediately and foreign certifications are already being pursued.
