The Hawker 4000, originally known as the Hawker Horizon, is a super-midsize
business jet developed by the Raytheon Aircraft Company.



Originally announced in 1996 as the Hawker Horizon, the 4000 made
its official debut in November 2005 when a development aircraft
was displayed at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA)
convention. As of March 2006 orders total approximately 80 aircraft,
with 11 scheduled for delivery by year end. On December 2, 2005
NetJets signed an order for 50 of the new aircraft, the largest
single commercial order in the history of Raytheon Aircraft.

The Hawker 4000 is being certified to FAA FAR Part 25 standards,
which places a five-year time limit on certification of a new transport
category aircraft. The 4000 completed Function and Reliability Tests
on May 25 2006. However, since the Part 25 five-year window expired
May 31, 2006, the company filed an extension request to head off
the possibility that the certification program would need to restart
from the beginning. On November 21 2006 the company announced that
the 4000 has received its FAA type certification. The aircraft is
currently in production, and customer deliveries are expected to
begin by the end of 2006.

The Hawker 4000 can be outfitted to seat eight people in a comfortable
cabin configuration. This is partially due to the aircraft’s carbon
composite construction, which gives it more interior space than
many jets in its class. Interior standing room is an average of
six feet. This composite construction also makes the aircraft much
lighter than a standard aluminum structure, allowing a maximum range
of 3,445 nautical miles, and a service ceiling of 45,000 feet. In
the cockpit, the Hawker features a fully glass cockpit, featuring
the Honeywell Primus EPIC system, similar to that found on commercial
jets such as the Bombardier CRJ. This system includes five 8×10-inch
LCD displays, and a fly by wire control system.
