Hawker Beechcraft (HBC) Global Customer Support has received FAA supplemental type certification for the Hawker 800XPR modification. The 800XPR features more powerful Honeywell TFE731-50R engines and HBC-designed winglets. For customers seeking panel upgrades, new Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics will be available. The airplane’s 5,000-pound-thrust engines deliver 7-percent lower specific fuel consumption, and the winglets add more than 100 nm of range and reduce time to climb by 5 percent. The first customer delivery to Denmark’s JoinJet, which provided the Hawker 800 used for certification, is expected this month.
