It’s coming up on a decade since the last of the Hawker 800 series rolled off the production line in Wichita, Kansas. The aircraft was produced under three different owners – British Aerospace (1983 to 1994), Raytheon (1993 to 2007), and Hawker Beechcraft (2007 to 2013).
While Textron bought the aircraft manufacturer out of bankruptcy in 2014, the popular type was never revived.
Still, the Hawker 800 series (including the 750 and 900) remain in demand as large midsize private jets. The Hawker 1000, with a maximum takeoff weight of 31,000, would be an entry-level in the super-midsize category. There are over 1,000 of the variety still flying as of November 2020, according to Amstat. They pop-up frequent in cabin category jet card programs and are often requested for on-demand charter.
Depending on type and payload, the range varies from 2,050 to 3,150 nautical miles.
Controller lists 34 Hawker 800 types for sale, starting at $1.395 million. A 1992 Hawker 1000 is listed for $750,000.
