"HAWKER 900XP, Information!"

The 900XP is little changed, except for the engines, from the previous 850XP, which grew winglets for better climb and improved range.

New Honeywell TFE731-50R engines are so much better that all aspects of performance -- takeoff, climb, cruise speed, range -- are improved, with no addition of fuel capacity. And operating costs are reduced too.

Since the laws of aerodynamics are unchanged, a number of "new and improved" business jet offerings are upgrades of current products.

Previous owner Raytheon had made improvements in all three areas. On a "standard day", the Hawker could hold its own against its mid-size competitors.

The 900XP is the result of replacing the 850XP's TFE731-5BR engines with TFE731-50Rs. Both the -5BR and the newer -50R are rated at 4,660lb of thrust, but the -50R has a thermodynamic limit of 5,000lb, while the -5BR's is 4,660lb.

The increased temperature margin offered by the -50R allows it to maintain rated thrust as conditions degrade from standard.

At 5,000ft pressure altitude and ISA +20oC conditions, the -50R's 3,970lb of thrust is a 4.5% improvement over the 5BR's 3,800lb.

In addition to higher thrust, the -50R offers reduced thrust specific fuel consumption, the result of over 70 design and material enhancements implemented by Honeywell.

For a 1,100km (600nm) stage length, Hawker Beechcraft says there is a 4% reduction in fuel burn, and improved temperature margins have increased inspection and overhaul intervals by nearly 50%.

These improvements are not without cost the newer, more-powerful and fuel-efficient engine is 20.4kg (45lb) heavier than its predecessor.

The Hawker 850XP has always been a load-and-go aircraft and the 900XP upgrade follows this rule. While its basic operating weight has increased by 41kg from the 850XP's, maximum take-off weight has not changed.

Even with this minor reduction, eight passengers and their baggage can still be loaded with full fuel tanks. Reduced fuel consumption of the new engines give the 900XP greater range than the 850XP with comparable payloads.

The published range advantage varies, depending upon selected cruise speed, with the relative advantage greater at high-speed cruise. With six passengers (a 545kg payload), Hawker lists an NBAA instrument flight rules range of 3,715km, a 315km improvement over the 850XP.

On a standard day, the 900XP has a 7% shorter take-off field length than the 850XP. Both aircraft weigh the same and have engines that produce the same amount of thrust, but a change in bookkeeping gives the 900XP the advantage.

Hawker Beechcraft is in the odd position of having two Hawker jets in its lineup that are many generations apart.

When the 850XP was certificated, no credit was taken for runway performance improvements generated by the addition of winglets.

The Hawker 900XP is the newest version of one of the very first "Private Jet." This "Hawker jet" has been in continuous production since 1962, longer than any other "Private Aircraft."

"HAWKER 900XP JET CHARTER" features a cabin that includes stand-up headroom, LCD lighting, touch-screen seat controls, fully-berthable seats and plenty of in-cabin storage. The cabin accommodates eight passengers.

While it may be an exaggeration to say there should be a picture of a Hawker 900XP in the dictionary under the definition of "mid-size business jet," it would not be much of one.

The 900XP's roots can be traced back to the de Havilland DH125, first flown in 1962. Under the Hawker Siddeley and BAe banners, the 125 evolved into the BAe 125 Series 800.

This was first flown in 1983 and incorporated many improvements over the original DH125: a longer fuselage that had debuted on the 600, new engines, a larger wing and an electronic flight system-equipped cockpit.

Before the type was sold to Raytheon, 700 of the several 125 variants had been produced in the UK, making it the most prolific of all UK jet aircraft.

With the purchase, Raytheon moved Hawker production to Kansas in 1996, but wing and fuselage fabrication remained and continues to this day in the UK.

The first significant upgrade to the 800 under Raytheon was the launch of the 800XP in 1995, which featured 4,650lb-thrust (20.7kN) Honeywell TFE731-5BR engines.

A Collins ProLine 21 integrated avionics suite was added in 2002. Production winglets graced the venerable Hawker in 2006. It is now dubbed the 850XP.

Certificated by the US Federal Aviation Administration and by the European Aviation Safety Agency, the 900XP represents the most capable and modern Hawker 125 model to date.

The 900XP shares the same large mid-size cabin for which the Hawker is renowned, the largest cross-section in its class according to Hawker Beechcraft, owner of the Hawker aircraft.

Headroom throughout the cabin is 1.75m, when measured from the aisle floor. The standard interior seats eight in a club forward arrangement with a three-seat divan and single seat aft.

An optional six-place configuration is available, with more luggage space and a single seat replacing the standard configuration's divan.

One unique entertainment feature offered to passengers is a glareshield-mounted cockpit camera. Looking forward through the windscreen, the camera allows passengers to see in real time what the pilots are seeing.

While offering 17.6m3 (620ft3) of cabin volume and the longest length (7.37m) of the three, the Sovereign has the smallest diameter cross-section.

Compared with the Hawker, the Sovereign feels like the business jet equivalent of the Boeing 757. The Hawker has a wider cross-section that makes it feel markedly larger than the Sovereign.

At 6.5m long it offers an expanded forward galley and plenty of room for eight seats. The G150's nearly rectangular cross-section evokes an airy feel and seems to provide a less "enclosed" space.

Seating for eight is available, but due to its shorter cabin (5.38m), it is less spacious than the Hawker.

Ambient noise level was low, allowing conversation at normal voice levels. Two 15in LCD screens are mounted in the cabin, one on the forward divider and the other on the aft.

The Hawker literally defined the mid-sized cabin, and the 900XP does not disappoint. At cruise altitude the flight deck is easy to sample the large cabin.

"Hawker 900XP" offers a combination of comfort, cabin size, and speed. One of the most popular "Jet Aircraft" in its class, it’s often likened to a spacious conference room in the sky.
