The Hawker 800 series is a family of midsize jets developed and manufactured by Hawker Beechcraft in the USA. They are all derivatives of the de Havilland DH125 (later the Hawker Siddeley HS.125) which flew for the first time in 1962.
The Hawker 800 family consists of the Hawker 750, 800, 800XP, 850XP and 900XP. The original Hawker 800 – initially the HS-125-800 – entered production in 1983 before being superseded by the 850XP which was certified in 2006. Differences included the addition of blended winglets to increase range, a fully updated avionics suite, and a redesigned interior for improved comfort.
In 2006, Hawker announced two further variants of the Hawker 800 family; the Hawker 750 and 900XP. The 750 variant has a slightly reduced range by replacing the ventral fuel tank with a heated external baggage compartment. The 900XP features uprated Honeywell TFE731-50BR engines for an increased maximum range of 5,425km (2,929nm).
Production of the Hawker 800 family ceased in 2013 after approximately 650 were manufactured and delivered worldwide.
