Hawker Beechcraft delivers 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.”
