Hawker Beechcraft Hawker 4000

    The Hawker 4000’s construction from a strong but lightweight composite material is a first in the industry—just one of many innovative features on this jet, which is not a refinement of earlier models but an all-new design. Lighter and stronger than aluminum, the carbon-fiber material allows for enhanced speed and range performance. The cabin seats eight very comfortably in a double-club configuration, while extra-large windows let in plenty of natural light. The advanced Honeywell Primus Epic avionics system in the cockpit minimizes pilot workload while providing a maximally smooth ride.
