Intercontinental Range for 15 People
The Beechcraft Hawker 1000 is a super-midsize jet with an intercontinental range and an expanded version of the Hawker 800. The cabin is 24.4 feet long and provides seating for up to 16 passengers, but 8 are more common, in addition to a crew of two pilots.
The twin-engine aircraft is powered by Pratt & Whitney 305B turbofan engines with Full-Authority Digital Control (FADEC) to reduce pilot workload.
Design and development of 1000 began with the Hawker-Siddeley HS.125/DH.125. The DH.125 was the designation for aircraft exported to America. Development of the plane continued during these transitions.
Following additional significant development and the merger of Hawker and British Aerospace, it became the BAe-125. BAE sold its business aircraft line to Raytheon in 1993 and by then the aircraft was designated the Hawker 1000. Raytheon assigned the aircraft program to its subsidiary; Beechcraft and the aircraft became known as the Beechcraft Hawker 1000.
A total of 59 aircraft were built between 1991 and 1996 as the BAe-125-1000, Hawker-1000, the Beech-Hawker 1000—all essentially the same airframe and engines, with model improvements over that period.
With a typical range of 3,150 miles, it offered limited intercontinental and transcontinental ranges. The Beechcraft Hawker 1000 was designed to transport passengers on these longer trips with speed and comfort.
The maximum cruise speed was 468 mph with a long-range cruise of 440 mph. At its maximum cruise speed, the HS 1000 had an ideal intermediate range (1000 to 1500 miles) between the current smaller, more recent HondaJet and the larger Gulfstream private jets.
Beechcraft Hawker 1000 Interior
Cabin amenities are typically custom interiors and include an enclosed lavatory. Seating arrangements can also be customized according to customer specifications. The cabin includes 65 cubic feet of baggage space.
The typical eight-seat cabin included a four-place club-seating arrangement, a three-seat divan, and another single-seat, with appropriate overhead lighting.
Since production ceased in 1996, it is likely that current operational aircraft have had interiors redesigned, replaced, and updated several times. Six oval windows on either side of the aircraft provided excellent natural cabin lighting, and a variety of interior lighting systems have been installed over the years.
