The goal of the Raytheon design team was not to design the fastest private jet, or the jet with the longest range, or the most economical mid-sized private jet. Their goal was to strike a balance between all of the things aircraft owners value: cabin size, speed, operating cost, and range. This goal was met in the Hawker 4000, a private jet that is strong on all fronts. The Hawker 4000’s cabin can carry between eight and twelve passengers. It is 29.5 feet long, 6 feet high and 6.5 feet wide. There is 115 cubic feet of baggage space available in an unpressurized external compartment. All of the typical amenities are available as well: a fully enclosed lavatory, appliances for hot and cold food preparation, and power plugs. For an optimum range cruise, the Hawker 4000 can fly at 430 knots at its maximum flight level of 45,000 feet. Its high speed cruise is 470 knots at 41,000 feet.The aircraft’s pressurization system is rated to 9.8 psi, meaning that the Hawker 4000 can maintain a 6,000 foot cabin altitude while flying at 45,000 feet.
