The Hawker 1000 was designed as a Long Range, Mid-Size Jet. The intention with this model was to carve out a market niche that was somewhat unique for the time. There were small, short range jets, Mid Sized Mid-Range Jets, and Large, Long Range Jets.
The cabin of the 1000 is quite roomy at 24.4 feet long, not counting the cockpit. Cabin height is 5.8 feet, width 6 feet.
The 1000 was fitted with Pratt and Whitney PW305 Engines. A new feature of these engines is the Full Authority Digital Control (FADEC) system. The system optimizes fuel use for the best possible range and performance. With a maximum range of 3,530 miles (3,098 nm), the 1000 boasted true Inter-continental range.
With a Honeywell SPX-8000 dual-channel, fail operational digital flight system, the Hawker 1000 Cockpit was quite advanced for its time.
