The Hawker 850, a variant of the Hawker 800, is a mid-size twin-engine corporate aircraft. It is a development of the British Aerospace BAE 125, and is currently assembled by Hawker Beechcraft. The 800 series has a number of modifications and changes over the 700, the most noticeable being the redesigned cockpit windscreen. Changes also included a modified rear fuselage fairing, a glass cockpit and uprated engines. The wings were also improved by incorporating new outer wing sections, this helped to reduce drag and improve aerodynamic efficiency. The 800 series was a sales success, in just over five years British Aerospace was registering their 200th sale.
This specific model is the Hawker 850XP, which is identical to the 800XP except that it includes winglets, which have extended its operating range by 100 nautical miles. This version also incorporates upgraded avionics and a redesigned interior.
