Hawker 900XP Earns EASA, Several Other International Certifications

Follows FAA Approval In August 2007

It is Hawker Beechcraft's goal that practically anywhere the sun shines on planet Earth, its new Hawker 900XP will be legal to fly there. Building on the August 2007 receipt of FAA certification for the midsize bizjet, the planemaker announced Thursday the 900XP recently achieved certifications by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and several other international agencies.

In addition to the EASA certification, the Hawker 900XP also received certification in Australia, Aruba, Czech Republic, Macau, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey and United Arab Emirates. Deliveries of the Hawker 900XP in Europe and other countries began in December 2007.

"Achieving these certifications enables more of our international customers the opportunity to own and operate this exceptional aircraft," said Brad Hatt, president, commercial sales. "The Hawker 900XP has a lower cost of operations while offering superior capabilities to the highly successful Hawker 850XP. These enhanced capabilities include significant improvements in engine thrust, fuel efficiency, range and overall performance."

The Hawker 900XP launches Honeywell’s new TFE731-50R engine, exhibiting improved hot and high altitude performance. Long range cruise improves to almost 2,800 nautical miles National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) range with six passengers, allowing it to make a non-stop flight from New York to anywhere on the West Coast 99.9 percent of the time.

At high speed cruise, range improves to 2,307 nautical miles for the Hawker 900XP as compared to the Hawker 850XP’s 2,111 nautical miles range, an almost-nine percent improvement. The planemaker states the new Honeywell TFE731-50R engines will result in five percent lower fuel burn, and 10 percent lower engine maintenance costs on MSP-enrolled engines. Thus, total direct operating costs will be reduced five percent and cost per nautical mile drops six percent.

The Hawker 900XP has the same cabin size as the Hawker 800-series, the largest and most successful cabin in its class.
