Hawker Beechcraft Delivers First Hawker 4000 In India

Company Sees Continued Success, Future Growth Opportunities

With the recent arrival of the first Hawker 4000 in India, Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) says it continues to see growth and demand in the Asia market. India's first Hawker 4000 is based at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai and is being utilized for both business and leisure travel by the HBC customer.

Hawker says the flagship Hawker 4000 generated considerable interest from prospective customers earlier this month while on display at India Aviation 2010 in the southern India city of Hyderabad.
"With the first Hawker 4000 in India and the recent India Aviation show, we continue to gain momentum with the world's most advanced business jet," said Justin Firestone, president, Asia-Pacific. "As the market leader for business aircraft in India, we are focused on the needs of the discerning customers in this region and are very much committed to continuing to provide world-class service and support."
The Hawker 4000 is certified for a take-off field length (ISA, SL, MTOW) of 5,068 ft. The airplane will climb from sea level to 37,000 feet in just over 14 minutes. Once at altitude, the Hawker 4000's  maximum cruise speed is Mach .84. The Pratt & Whitney Canada PW308A engines deliver 6,900 pounds of thrust each flat rated at ISA +22° Celsius and, combined with the Hawker 4000's advanced wing design, provide impressive high altitude/hot temperature and short field performance.
The Hawker 4000's cockpit features a Honeywell Epic avionics suite with five high-resolution 20 x 25 cm (8 x 10 in.) LCD displays. It has enhanced situational awareness and flight management systems, backed by real-time system monitoring and status. Dual Inertial Reference System, dual air-cycle machines and auto-throttle are standard. Avionics and utility systems are fully integrated, and advanced composite material construction provides for lower part count, enhanced reliability and lower life-cycle costs.
