Fourth Hawker Horizon Joins Certification Program
Raytheon Aircraft’s fourth Hawker Horizon, which entered flight test last month, represents the final production configuration of the new super-midsize business jet. Outfitted with an interior, the aircraft will conduct FAA function and reliability testing as part of the certification effort. In addition, it will participate in an operational evaluation that will ensure “a successful entry into service and full customer satisfaction before initial deliveries,” according to Raytheon Aircraft. Type certification and delivery of at least two aircraft are expected by the end of this year.
