Hawker 750 first flight

Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) achieved first flight of the Hawker 750 the newest member of the Hawker family on August 23, 2007. The Hawker 750 is another evolution of the world's best-selling, mid-size Hawker 800-series providing Hawker Beechcraft Corporation with the largest cabin in the light-medium-size segment.  

"First flight of a new model to the market is always an exciting time," said Brad Hatt, president Commercial Sales. "The Hawker 750 opens a whole new market for us and with a strong backlog already in place, we're anxious to start deliveries."  

The new Hawker 750 will be a 2,100 nautical mile NBAA IFR range airplane with four passengers, strategically positioned with the largest cabin in the light-mid size aircraft segment. It will have the same cabin as the Hawker 800-series, but the ventral fuel tank will be replaced with a heated external baggage compartment with 32 cubic feet of additional baggage capacity. The Hawker 750 cabin measuring 5'9" in height and 6'0" in width will be far superior in both comfort and size to anything in the light-mid size category.  The airplane will continue to use the highly successful Honeywell TFE731-5BR engine and state-of-the-art Collins Pro Line 21 avionics package. The aircraft will feature a new Hawker interior designed specifically for the 750 and for this market segment.  Priced at $11.2 million standard and $11.9 million typically equipped in 2007 dollars, certification and deliveries are planned for late Q4 2007.  

Hawker Beechcraft Corporation is the world's leading business, special-mission and trainer aircraft manufacturer – designing, marketing and supporting aviation products and services for businesses, governments and individuals worldwide. The company's headquarters and major facilities are located in Wichita, Kan., with operations in Salina, Kan.; Little Rock, Ark.; and Chester, England, U.K. The company leads the industry with a global network of over 100 factory-owned and authorized service centers.
