The FAA awarded type certification to Hawker Beechcraft Corporation for the Hawker 750 in February 2008. A new variant of the Hawker 850XP, the Hawker 750 would be marketed as a “Light-Midsize” Business Jet, providing direct competition to the Citation XLS and Learjet Model 60.
There are two main differences between the Hawker 850XP and the lighter, lower cost, and shorter range Hawker 750. 1. The 750 does not have the Factory Winglets installed; and 2. The 1,500 lb. rear (Ventral) Fuel Tank was replaced on the Hawker 750 with an external, 47 cubic foot, heated baggage compartment.
Similar to the 850XP, the Hawker Model 750 features a Collins Pro-Line 21 avionics suite with 4 – 8 × 10-inch adaptive monitors displaying navigation, terrain awareness warning systems (TAWS), weather, reduced vertical separation minimum (RVSM) and enhanced ground proximity warning systems (EGPWS).
Powered by the same TFE731-5BR Engines, the Hawker 750 and 850XP have very similar performance profiles, with the lighter Hawker 750 owning a slightly higher rate of climb of 3,500 fpm vs 3,415 for the Hawker 850XP. With its “Seats Full” range of 2,050 nm, the 750 is designed for shorter missions and would require a brief fuel stop in order to complete a coast to coast trip with typical flight parameters and fuel reserves.
The Hawker 750 features a roomy, stand-up cabin with five swiveling, reclining (fully berthable) seats, a three-place divan, and plenty of in-cabin storage.
