The Hawker 1000: Good for the Long Haul
The Hawker 1000 was manufactured between 1993 and 1998 by Beechcraft/Raytheon Aircraft. The aircraft was produced as part of the midsize Hawker 800 series of corporate jets, designed to fill the need for a jet with a bit longer range and more baggage space than Hawker 800. With an average speed of 506 mph and an increased range of 3400 statue miles, the Hawker 1000 can fly coast to coast (in both directions) without a fuel stop.
The Hawker 1000 is the largest Hawker in the series and has a stretched fuselage, allowing it to carry around 200 more gallons of fuel than the Hawker 800s. The Hawker 1000 is also unique because it is the first in the Hawker series to be powered by powerful Pratt and Whitney PW 305 turbofan engines. It needs only about 6,000 feet of runway distance at sea level. Hawker 1000s use the Honeywell SPX-8000 avionics dual-channel fail-operational digital flight system. You will often hear this jet referred to as the “work horse” of private jets.
The Hawker 1000 is a good midsize option for 8 or less passengers looking for a longer range, increased comfort and superior performance. The standard cabin layout is five single executive seats and one three-place divan, strongly resembling the cabin of the 800s with a bit more leg room. The cabin measures 24′ 5″ in length, 6′ in height and 5′ 9″ in width, with a cabin volume of 680 cubic feet. The Hawker 1000 comes standard with a full on-board lavatory and 80 cubic feet of internal baggage space. Cabin refurbishments can include: a microwave oven and coffeemaker, refreshment center, LED lighting, Wi-Fi, an in-flight entertainment system with 8.4-inch individual plug-in monitors, a DVD/CD player, satellite phone, Airshow and noise-reducing cabin insulation features.
The Hawker 1000 is a great option for private fliers looking to go longer distances in less time. The incorporation of additional windows, increased baggage space and faster speeds, are all attractive upgrades for private fliers.
