The Hawker 800 by Beechcraft is a private business jet developed by British Aerospace in demand for a more modern version of the popular 700. They redesigned the cockpit windscreen for greater visibility, which adds an extra layer of safety. In addition, improvements were needed to the aerodynamics of the aircraft to allow for greater range while maintaining the short distances needed for takeoffs and landings.

The 800 series by Hawker became a great success; the company added the Garrett TFE731-5R-1H engines and modified the rear fuselage to reduce drag, which improves efficiency. The result has been that whereas the previous model sold 500 units in 19 years, the Hawker 800 achieved 200 sales in less than five. The 800 remains one of the most sought business jet aircraft today.
