Hawker Beechcraft Corporation earns type certification for Hawker 750

Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC), the world's leading business, special-mission and trainer aircraft manufacturer, achieved certification by the Federal Aviation Association on the newest aircraft in the Hawker family, the new light-midsize Hawker 750, on February 8, 2008. The Hawker 750 utilizes the fuselage and wings of the world's best-selling, midsize Hawker 800-series, providing the largest cabin in the light-midsize aircraft segment.  

"The Hawker 750 has opened a new customer segment for Hawker Beechcraft Corporation and has been so successful that the next available units are in 2010," said Brad Hatt, president, Commercial Aircraft. "This aircraft has the perfect combination of reliability and operating efficiency, while incorporating a large luxurious cabin with internal and external baggage areas. The Hawker 750 is the best choice in the light-midsized marketplace."  

Offering the best range and payload capability in its class, the Hawker 750 has a 2,116 nautical mile (3,919 km) NBAA IFR range, capable of achieving multiple-city visits in one day. With a cabin generous for flying eight passengers, the Hawker 750 is strategically positioned with the largest cabin in the light-midsize aircraft segment. The cabin measures 5'9" (1.75 m) in height and 6'0" (1.83 m) in width, far superior in both comfort and size to its two nearest competitors. It has the same cabin as the Hawker 800-series, with a heated external baggage compartment that provides 32 cubic feet (0.91 cu m) of additional baggage capacity.  

The Hawker 750 includes the highly successful Honeywell TFE731-5BR engine, producing 4,660 pounds of engine thrust. Combined with state-of-the art Collins Pro Line 21TM avionics package with IFIS and enhanced map overlays, the Hawker 750's operating capabilities satisfy the segment's unmet need for a high-performance light midsize jet.  

The aircraft features a new Hawker interior designed at HBC's Little Rock Completion Center specifically for the 750 and its customers. Priced at $12.2 million typically-equipped in 2008 dollars, deliveries will begin in the first quarter of 2008. Pursuits of international certifications are to follow.
