The Hawker 800XP has become one of the most popular mid-size business aircraft among private jet charter customers and for good reason. Coming from a long lineage of aircraft excellence, the Hawker 800XP is the 3rd generation 800 series aircraft from British Aerospace (BAe), now formerly produced by Wichita, Kansas based Hawker Beechcraft Corporation. Production began on the Hawker 800XP in 1995 and continued on through 2006.
Refinements from previous models included increased weight limits, runway performance, and overall cruise and climb speeds. Impeccable for transcontinental or international flying, particularly out of short runways, the Hawker 800XP is the perfect airplane to meet your flight demands.
Step inside the cabin of the Hawker 800XP and immerse yourself in the spacious cabin with seating for 8. Typical configurations include a 4-place club section, a 3-place divan, and a single seat. The Hawker 800XP offers one of the biggest cabins in its class. With a standing height of 5’11” and a width of 6 feet, there is plenty of room to stretch out and unwind after a tough day at the office, or pack the family in for a weekend vacation down to Cabo San Lucas. Want to take the guys on a golfing trip to Pebble Beach? The Hawker 800XP can fit 3-5 golf bags and 6-8 medium sized suitcases. For longer legs, the Hawker 800XP has impressive performance. New York to Los Angeles can be done with ease, while have 6 passengers and their luggage tucked away in the back.
Other cabin amenities include a galley with microwave, fully enclosed lavatory with sink, cabin access to the external baggage compartment, and a variety of media and entertainment options such as DVD players, satellite phones, and optional Wi-Fi.
Up front, Hawker 800XP flight crews enjoy the latest refinements in cockpit technology to ensure every flight is completed in a safe and efficient manner. This includes the Honeywell SPZ-8000 flight information system, terminal collision avoidance system (TCAS II), ground proximity warning system (GPWS), and dual autopilots for added redundancy.
Balance is the Hawker 800XPs middle name. There is no better aircraft out there in the mid-size market that strikes a balance between aircraft performance and cabin luxury. This attribute is what made the Hawker 800XP a driving force and leader in the private jet charter market.
Had a great flight yesterday. The pilots were amazing. Got us thru a storm and wind with hardly a bump. Very impressive.
The trip was great. We were scheduled to depart at 9:00am. My parents arrived at the Bermuda Dunes Airport around 8:15. The pilots were ready a long time before that. They asked if we wanted to leave early and we got my father loaded up in the jet and left 8:30am. You couldn’t do that with a commercial flight. The pilots were very courteous and professional. They made us feel safe and comfortable before the flight and during the flight.
I used to charter from other companies, until I met the personnel from Desert Jet. I haven’t flown with anybody else in the last 10 years. Desert Jet is an organization that puts safety first, and I appreciate their professionalism.
They are professional; they care about what they do. It’s a top notch organization right here in our backyard.
Thanks for the super crisp, professional, and friendly service…will definitely use you guys again!
Thanks for taking care of (my associate), he was delighted.
I just wanted to send an email about our wonderful flying experience with the company. We booked a flight for four to San Francisco for April 15 – 18… What an absolutely great holiday getaway. Your staff are so wonderful, the pilot was great and the overall experience was above expectations. We are hoping to go again this fall and sure hope we can make our dates work to fly with you. Thanks for making our weekend such a memorable holiday for all us.
We had a great trip and hope to be able to do it again. Love the pilots!
Thank you all so much for a fabulous flight! What a first class operation! Archie panted the whole way but T-bone acted as though this was “normal” for him! We loved the two pilots….what great guys! I look forward to a long relationship! Thank you again for everything….especially the Bones and Scones cookies.
Thanks again for making the past year of charters truly a great experience. It’s enjoyable to business with such a well-organized and professional company. You and the team at Desert Jet make the following business statement a reality – “committed to excellence in customer service”.
