The design for the Hawker 800XP began in 1961 from British aircraft manufacturer deHavilland who sold the design to Hawker Siddeley who designated the aircraft the HS-125. When Hawker Siddeley merged with British Aircraft Corporation and renamed British Aerospace in 1977, the aircraft was re-designated the BAE-125. British Aerospace produced several variants of the highly successful Mid Cabin jets including the Hawker 700, 800, 800A and 800SP before it sold the Hawker line to Raytheon in 1993.
The Hawker 800XP began production in 1993 and competed primarily with the Bombardier Lear 60 and the Cessna Citation VII. The Hawker offered 22% more cabin volume than the Lear 60 and 28% more volume than the Citation VII although it left little room for bags with only 48 cubic feet of baggage capacity. It also outperformed both the Lear 60 and Citation VII in range with a maximum non-stop range of over 2,900 miles and at a slower speed.
The combination of cabin volume and range made the Hawker 800XP highly successful with 425 delivered to customers between 1994 and 2005 and was finally replaced by the 850XP and 900XP. The line was sold to a private equity group in 2006 and the Hawker line ended in 2012 after filing for bankruptcy. A new restructured company Beechcraft Corporation continues to build the King Air turbo-prop and Bonanza piston powered lines but has cancelled Hawker line.
