Hawker Beechcraft Unveils First Hawker 4000 Business Jet
Described by the company as “the world’s most advanced business jet,” the $21 Million Hawker 4000 Business Jet is the first plane to offer big-jet safety and technology features at a midsized-jet price.
After a 20-year, $1 billion development process, Hawker Beechcraft has held a delivery ceremony at its Wichita headquarters to hand over the first production version of the Hawker 4000 business jet.
It has a range of 3,280 nautical miles, that’s coast to coast or New York to London nonstop, which is pretty usefull unless you want to refuel in Greenland en route to London.
Hawker Beechcraft is also the first manufacturer to certify a composite-body jet with the FAA. The fuselage is composed of three enormous pieces (vs. more than 10,000 on a traditional competitor).
Tucked into its fine leather this private jet offers limitless leathers, woods, and exotic materials.
“There is already a two and a half year wait list, in part thanks to orders from fractional-jet companies like NetJets and BJETS, so even those who won’t be buying a 4000 may still be able to hop aboard one soon.” Source: CNN
