Maiden Flight of the Hawker 4000

On August 11, 2001, the first prototype of the Hawker 4000 made its maiden flight.

The Hawker 4000, a super-midsize business jet developed by Hawker Beechcraft (formerly Raytheon Aircraft Company), made its public debut in November 2002 at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention, and by 2018, the 2008-2010 Hawker 4000s were priced around $4 million.

The aircraft can be outfitted to seat ten people and its carbon composite construction allows for more interior space than other jets in its class, and a maximum range of 3,445 nautical miles, since it is lighter than a standard aluminum structure.

The flight deck features a Honeywell Primus Epic avionics suite with EICAS, FADEC and autothrottle.
