Late last month, the FAA awarded Raytheon full Part 25 type certification for the Hawker 4000, some 10 years after the super-midsize jet was announced, five years later than originally planned and three months after the company received FAA exemptions to certain regulatory conditions that it will have to meet down the road. By year-end Raytheon hopes to receive approval for flight into known icing. The company plans to deliver 24 of the $19.5 million jets next year, starting in the first quarter. At press time, Raytheon said it had orders for 74 Hawker 4000s.
