The new engines in the Hawker 750 at the time, represented quantum leaps in efficiency and they enabled a new generation of six- to eight-passenger corporate jets that can still pass Stage III noise requirements.
The 750 is only marginally faster than the XLS+ on most missions and considerably slower than a Learjet 60.
However, most Hawker flights are considerably shorter, and on a trip from, say, Chicago to Atlanta, the speed disadvantage won’t cost you more than about 10 minutes.
Like all 125 series Hawkers, the 750 doesn’t force operators to choose between full passenger seats and full fuel tanks–this airplane allows for both.
With full fuel, payload is an impressive 2,250 pounds (1,021 kg). However, also like its predecessors, the 750 remains challenged when it comes to baggage capacity, to a point.
