Hawker Beechcraft announces WAAS/LPV as standard on 2010 Hawker 900XP, Hawker 750

Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) today announced that it will begin delivering its new Hawker 900XP and Hawker 750 aircraft with Rockwell Collins Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV) capabilities as standard, beginning in 2010.  

"We are committed to offering all of our Hawker Beechcraft aircraft with the latest state-of-the-art equipment and versatility," said Shawn Vick, HBC executive vice president.  "The addition of WAAS/LPV capability as standard on the Hawker 900XP and 750 will contribute to the exceptional operational flexibility and overall performance and value of the aircraft."  

The WAAS/LPV upgrade makes it possible to use more than 1500 existing LPV approaches, which can lower decision altitudes to 200 feet above ground level (AGL) and visibility minimums to as low as one-half mile. The additional capability also eliminates the need for a receiver autonomous integrity monitoring (RAIM) prediction report and enables more "direct-to" operations. That translates into significant fuel savings, and dramatically decreases pilot workload and the likelihood of missed approaches.
