Super Midsize: Hawker 4000

    Because of certification delays, those who purchased a Hawker 4000 (316.676.0800, www.hawkerbeechcraft.com) had a long wait before taking delivery of the high-tech, built-from-scratch jet of their dreams. But according to Adam Katz, president, CEO, and founder of boutique charter operator Talon Air, the aircraft is well worth the wait. "I love the thing," he says of his 4000, which Hawker Beechcraft constructed from a strong but lightweight composite material. "You can load it up with full fuel, fill the seats, max out the baggage, and it’s good to go. It’s such an advanced airplane; so roomy, quiet, and easy to maintain." rel="nofollow"

    Katz’s passengers are likely to notice that Hawker Beechcraft put careful thought into the galley, storage areas, and workspace aboard the 4000. The aircraft’s cabin seats eight very comfortably in a double-club configuration, while extra-large windows let in plenty of natural light and provide exceptional views. The Hawker 4000 sells for around $22 million.
