Hawker 800XPS/N 258364The History behind this Exclusive Jet
The Hawker 800XP is one of the most successful private jets that British Aerospace has ever made. It is a third-generation model of the 800 series, and is similar in part to the ubiquitous Hawker 400XP. It is designed to complete transcontinental and international flights as needed, as well as have good short range capabilities. Since it is the third member of the 800 series, it has undergone many small improvements to the features that made it successful in the private jet market to begin with — its cruise and climb speeds, runway performance, and weight limits.
This is a medium executive jet powered by two Honeywell TFE731-5BR-1H engines capable of giving off 4,660 pounds of thrust each on takeoff. The Hawker 800XP can climb to an altitude of 37,000 feet in twenty minutes, where it can reach its high cruise speed of 447 knots. For long range cruise speeds, the Hawker 800XP flies at 39,000 feet at a speed of 400 knots. If needed, it can fly up to 41,000 feet to avoid traffic or weather. The cabin is pressurized to 8.6 psi, meaning that it can maintain a sea level cabin at 22,200 feet. Aircraft comes equipped with communications: Aircell ST-3100 single channel satellite phone and ATG-5000 Broadband. For entertainment: Airshow 400, five individual seat monitors and Collins CMS-1 cabin management system.
Comfort & Size
The cabin of the Hawker 800XP is typically configured with eight seats: a four-person club section, a three-person divan, and one forward-facing seat. The seats are fully adjustable and can swivel 360°. Different soundproofing options are available, but cabin noise levels usually stay in the low 70-decibel range. The cabin itself measures 21.3 feet long, 5.7 feet high and 6 feet wide. There is a baggage compartment accessible in-flight which holds 48 cubic feet of luggage.
The avionics system is based on the Honeywell SPZ-8000 suite, which includes GPS, High Frequency communications, GPWS (Ground Proximity Warning System), TCAS II (Traffic Collision Avoidance System), and dual autopilot. Flight and systems information is displayed by five screens and some analog controls.
The Hawker 800XP strikes a balance between factors that drive private jet sales – fuel economy, climb and cruise performance, and takeoff distance.
Hawker 800XPModel: 258364 N806TC
The “XP” in the name stands for Extended Performance. This model has more powerful engines that enable the jet to better perform during initial climb and while at cruising altitude. There are several variants of the Hawker 800XP currently in use. There is a military variant that is used by the militaries of South Korea, Japan, Brazil, Pakistan, and Mozambique primarily for reconnaissance, search and rescue, and surveillance. The Hawker 850XP is another variant that includes winglets which provide an extra 100 miles of range.
