The super-midsize Hawker 4000

Hawker 4000 certified by European Aviation Safety Agency

Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) today announced it has received Type Certification for the Hawker 4000 super-midsize business jet from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The approval is the latest in a growing list for the flagship of the Hawker Beechcraft fleet, which has also gained certification in Bermuda, China, Honduras, India, the Isle of Man, New Zealand, Nigeria, South Africa, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and the United States. With its innovative composite construction, the Hawker 4000 is the world's most advanced business jet, delivering an exceptional combination of speed, climb performance and range.

"The market for the Hawker 4000 in Europe, Africa and the Middle East is an expansive and important one," said Sean McGeough, president, Europe, Middle East and Africa. "EASA certification bolsters the Hawker 4000's already enthusiastic reception in the region. There are currently eight aircraft based in the region with more scheduled for delivery in the coming months."

The Hawker 4000 leads the super-midsize business jet category in versatility, comfort and performance. It can carry 4 passengers 3,200 nautical miles non stop. Its best-in-class take-off field length (ISA, SL, MTOW) is just 1,545 m (5,068 ft.). It climbs from sea level to 41,000 feet in just 19 minutes. Once at altitude, the Hawker 4000's maximum cruise speed of Mach .84 (896 km/hr gets customers to their destination quickly. 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 fully-integrated Honeywell Primus Epic avionics suite, with five high-resolution 20 x 25 cm (8 x 10 in.) LCD displays, that is built on the same advanced avionics architecture as the Boeing 777. It has enhanced situational awareness and flight management systems, backed by real-time system monitoring and status. The airplane comes standard with dual Inertial Reference System, dual air-cycle machines and auto-throttle that are ideally suited for long-range and trans-continental flights. Avionics and utility systems are fully integrated, and advanced composite material construction provides for lower part count, enhanced reliability and lower lifecycle costs.

The composite fuselage of the Hawker 4000 features a 1.83 m (6 ft.) stand-up cabin with a 1.97 m (6 ft. 5.5 in.) width. A flat floor runs the entire length of the aircraft, leading to an impressively large 2.51 cubic m (88.5 cubic ft.)/900 lb. baggage area, accessible during flight and on the ground through an exterior door. An eight-place interior configuration is standard with fully-articulating executive seats in double club format. The interior can be customized with a wide variety of materials and cabin finishes.
