Overview & History

Based on the Hawker 800, the Raytheon Hawker 1000 seats one less than the smaller Hawker 800 but has a longer range and one more window on each side of the cabin.

The Hawker 1000 boasts high cruise speeds, a large baggage capacity, an updated interior, and increased head and shoulder room. This, therefore, results in the Hawker 1000 being a desirable aircraft at the time of manufacture.

After the success of the Hawker 800, Hawker 800A, and the Hawker 800XP, the British Aerospace Corporation announced the Hawker 1000 as the next installment of its HS-125 private business jet series.

Based on the Hawker 800, the Hawker 1000 features two additional windows, a fuselage stretch, and an improved wing design. The Hawker 1000 strikes a balance in desired features and performance, debuting as a roomy midsize private business jet with intercontinental range capabilities.

Hawker 1000 Performance

The Hawker 1000 is powered by a pair of Pratt & Whitney Canada PW305 turbofan engines. Each engine has the impressive capability to generate 5,255 pounds of thrust at take-off, showcasing the aircraft’s powerful performance. This state-of-the-art engine design emits exhaust at a slower speed, contributing to a significantly lower noise footprint—an ideal feature in the private jet industry that prioritizes comfort and tranquility.

Furthermore, these engines are equipped with a standard Full-Authority Digital Control (FADEC) system. This innovative system harnesses data from the air data system and the engine throttles to optimize the performance of the engines. The FADEC system offers enhanced reliability, fuel efficiency, and simpler operation, making it an invaluable feature for any private jet.

The Hawker 1000, equipped with its powerful engines, necessitates a runway of 5,950 feet for a standard day take-off at sea level. This requirement escalates to 8,075 feet when the airport altitude is at 5,000 feet, demonstrating how altitude can impact the take-off process.

Comfortably accommodating four passengers, the Hawker 1000 requires a mere 2,500 feet of runway for landing, showcasing its superior landing capabilities. With a remarkable range of 3,098 nautical miles and a maximum certified service ceiling of 43,000 feet, this private business jet stands out in its class.

When configured for long-range cruise, the Hawker 1000 can sustain an airspeed of 400 knots at an altitude of 41,000 feet. In a high-speed cruise configuration, it even maintains an impressive airspeed of 453 knots at an altitude of 37,000 feet.

Hawker 1000 Interior

The interior of the Hawker 1000 is meticulously designed to provide a perfect blend of spaciousness and comfort.

With a length of 24.4 feet (7.4 meters) and an impressive width of 6.0 feet (1.8 meters), the cabin offers an expansive area that allows passengers to move around freely. The generous height of 5.8 feet (1.8 meters) further adds to the feeling of openness and airiness.

Not only does the cabin provide ample space, but it also ensures a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere throughout the flight. With the capability to maintain a sea-level atmosphere up to an altitude of 22,200 feet (6,767 meters), passengers can enjoy a smooth and enjoyable journey without feeling the effects of high altitude.

The aircraft is typically designed to accommodate eight passengers, but it can easily accommodate up to nine, offering flexibility for larger groups or families.

The interior is bathed in natural light, thanks to the presence of 14 large windows that provide breathtaking views of the surrounding skies.

The cabin is carefully engineered to maintain a maximum cabin pressure differential of 8.6 psi, ensuring a quiet and serene environment for both work and leisure activities.


The Hawker 1000, a remarkable aircraft, boasts the cutting-edge Honeywell SPX-8000 dual-channel fail-operational digital flight system.

This system includes a five EDZ-818 flat panel electronic flight instrument system (EFIS), providing pilots with comprehensive and accurate flight information.

In addition, the cockpit integrates the Primus 870 Doppler weather and turbulence system, which enhances situational awareness, and the Bendix/King KHF transceiver for seamless communication.

To ensure safety, the LSZ lightning sensor system is also incorporated, alerting the pilot to potential lightning activity.

Together, these advanced technologies contribute to an exceptional and unparalleled flight experience.

Hawker 1000 Charter Cost

The estimated charter cost for the Hawker 1000 amounts to around $4,100 in North America.

However, it’s important to note that actual costs may vary depending on a multitude of influencing factors.

These factors include the distance of the trip, fluctuations in fuel prices, aircraft availability, and additional services requested. By considering these variables, you can ensure a more accurate estimation of the overall cost.

Hawker 1000 Purchase Cost

When new, the Hawker 1000 carried a price tag of $13 million. Today, an average pre-owned Hawker 1000 costs around $1.9 million.

The estimated annual ownership cost, considering 200 hours of flight per year, is around $864,000.
