Aircraft Recently Shown At Singapore Air Show

"The first delivery of a Hawker 4000 to a customer in mainland China is a milestone for us and for aviation in a country with one of the world's most rapidly expanding economies," said Justin Firestone, president, Asia-Pacific. "The Hawker 4000 provides the range, performance and capacity needed to do business in a country as vast as China and throughout the Pacific Rim. This remarkable aircraft can seamlessly conduct non-stop missions such as Shanghai to Singapore, Beijing to Bangkok and Hong Kong to Tokyo."
 
HBC recently exhibited the Hawker 4000, as well as the Hawker 750 and the Beechcraft King Air B200GT, at the Singapore Airshow. Additionally, the company will display the Hawker 4000, Hawker 750 and King Air 350 at the upcoming India Aviation 2010 in Hyderabad from March 3-7. The Hawker Beechcraft family of aircraft has generated considerable interest from customers throughout the Pacific region.
 
The Hawker 4000 can be airborne in just 5,068 ft. The aircraft is capable of climbing from sea level to 37,000 feet in just over 14 minutes. Once at altitude, the Hawker 4000 accelerates very quickly to its maximum cruise speed of Mach .84 powered by a pair of Pratt & Whitney Canada PW308A engines, delivering 6,900 pounds of thrust each flat rated at ISA +22° Celsius. Combined with the Hawker 4000's advanced wing design, the airplane performs well in high altitude/hot temperature and short field environments.
 
The Hawker 4000's cockpit features a Honeywell Epic avionics suite with five high-resolution 20 x 25 cm (8 x 10 in.) LCD displays. It has enhanced situational awareness and flight management systems, backed by real-time system monitoring and status. The airplane comes standard with dual Inertial Reference System, dual air-cycle machines and auto-throttle that are ideally suited for long-range and trans-continental flights. Avionics and utility systems are fully integrated, and advanced composite material construction provides for lower part count, enhanced reliability and lower life-cycle costs.
