Jet Aircraft Charters on the Hawker 1000/1000A – History and Highlights

Consider an executive air charter on the Hawker 1000, which is often called “The Gentleman’s Hawker” because of its style and comfort. This super-midsize twin-engine aircraft went through a series of name changes throughout its history. It was designed in the 1960s by Britain’s de Havilland Aircraft Company and was originally called the DH.125. When Hawker Siddeley bought de Havilland, the jet was renamed HS.125. In 1977, Hawker Siddeley merged with the British Aircraft Corporation to form British Aerospace, and the jet was renamed BAe 125-1000. In 1993, Raytheon acquired British Aerospace’s business jets division and the BAe 125-1000 became the Raytheon Hawker 1000. It was the largest of the Hawker Siddeley business jets and eventually replaced the hugely popular Hawker 800 which suffered from minimal range and limited baggage capacity.
