Overview & History

The Hawker 850XP is identical to the Hawker 800XP except it has upgraded avionics, a redesigned cabin interior (within the same 551 cubic foot space), and includes winglets that have increased its range by 140 nautical miles with four passengers and available fuel. The balanced field length is shorter at 5,640 feet and the long-range cruise speed has increased to 402 knots from 389 knots over the Hawker 800XP.

As of December 2016, 67% of the Hawker 850XP aircraft were purchased pre-owned by their current owners, the other 33% new. Currently, 8.1% are for sale with a portion of those (50%) under an exclusive broker agreement. When for sale, the average number of days on the market is 450 days.

Certified in 2006, the Hawker 850XP is the third member of the 800 series. A total of 100 Hawker 850XP aircraft have been manufactured with all but one in operation.


Hawker 850XP Performance

Two Honeywell TFE731-5BR engines power the Hawker 850XP, each offering 4,660 pounds of thrust and using 277 gallons per hour (GPH). The range of the Hawker 850XP is 2,642 nm operating under NBAA IFR 4 passengers with available fuel. Certified in 2006, the 850XP’s greatest feature is its design, more specifically the addition of winglets. The slight modification improves overall performance by creating a more aerodynamic aircraft.

The 850XP climbs to 39,000 feet two minutes less than its predecessor and can travel an additional 100 nautical miles. It completes cross-country trips such as Teterboro to San Francisco (2,225 nm). Less drag means that the aircraft is capable of traveling against headwinds at a high-speed cruise of 448 knots, and requires less fuel. Surprisingly, winglets also increase the aircraft’s basic inspection interval from 300 to 600 hours.


Hawker 850XP Interior

The greatest appeal for many private travelers when considering the Hawker 850XP is its large and spacious cabin. Its impressive dimensions of 21′ 4″ length, 6′ width, and 5′ 9″ height provide comfortable freedom of movement and legroom for its passengers.

With 604 cubic feet of interior cabin volume, it truly beats the competition. Typically set up in a luxurious double club arrangement, the cabin comfortably accommodates eight passengers, although it is possible to seat as many as eleven passengers.

Standard cabin features include touch-screen seat controls, adjustable seats, in-cabin baggage space, LCD lighting, and of course ample standing room. Although the Hawker 800XP has as spacious an interior as the 850XP, the new and improved version features superior space optimization to make the absolute most out of the potential space of the aircraft.

Travelers are guaranteed to appreciate the painstaking effort Hawker has made in making its aircraft as comfortable, luxurious, and spacious as possible.



Another feature of the 850XP that should not go unnoticed is its upgraded avionics system. The 850XP employs the Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite. Four 8×10 inch adaptive screens display navigation, terrain awareness warning systems (TAWS), weather, reduced vertical separation minimum (RVSM), and enhanced ground proximity warning systems (EGPWS).

The system is set up intuitively to decrease workload while increasing safety and awareness in the cockpit.
