The Hawker Beechcraft Hawker 750 offers the speed and take-off performance advantages of the longer-range Hawker 800XP aircraft, with the same Honeywell TFE 731-5BR turbofan engines, but the ventral fuel tank has been replaced with a heated external baggage compartment with 32ft³ of additional baggage capacity. With four passengers, the Hawker 750 has a 2,100nm (3,889km) NBAA IFR range.

Other improvements from older series Hawkers include standard thrust reversers and in-flight operable auxiliary power unit, increased brake energy capacity, increased capacity de-icing fluid tank and a three-turbine-wheel air-cycle machine for much-improved cabin cooling.

The Hawker 750 was launched at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention in October 2006.

An initial order was received at the show from NetJets Aviation and NetJets Europe for 30 aircraft. NetJets increased the order to 60 aircraft in January 2007. Other orders received include: National Air Services (20 aircraft) of Saudi Arabia and Jet Asia (four).

First flight of the Hawker 750 took place in August 2007 and the aircraft received US FAA certification in February 2008. The aircraft entered service in June 2008, with Jet Asia Limited which has four aircraft on order.

Hawker 750 flight deck

The Hawker 750 is equipped with the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite with four 8in x 10in high-resolution Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Displays (AMLCD).

The avionics suite includes: single FMS-6000 flight management system, Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS), Traffic alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS), Engine Indicating System (EIS), Integrated Flight Information System (IFIS), 8.33kHz spacing communications and turbulence detection weather radar.

The IFIS system provides the capability to display features that enhance safety and situational awareness such as electronic charts, enhanced map overlays, graphical weather (optional) and three dimension FMS mapping (optional), on a single display. The IFIS system includes a single FSU-5010 file server unit and single CCP-3000 cursor control panel.


The 1.75m (5ft 9in) high, 1.83m (6ft) wide cabin allows easy movement during the flight.

The versatile cabin of the Hawker 750 allows a large variety of layouts with each aircraft interior being designed to satisfy the requirements and tastes of the individual customer.

With an eight-seat configuration, there is a baggage capacity of 77.5ft³ most of which is accessible in flight. The Hawker 750 features a 32ft³ external baggage compartment.

A comprehensive refreshment centre is equipped with a cold food box, hot water and stowage for crockery, cutlery and glasses.

“With four passengers, the Hawker 750 has a 2,100nm (3,889km) NBAA IFR range.”

The Rockwell Collins Airshow 21 cabin management system provides passengers with LCD touch screens for the control of cabin temperature, lighting and entertainment systems.

From 2008, the Hawker 750 can be fitted with the Aircell Axxess II satellite communications system.

Turbofan engines

The Hawker 750 is powered by two Honeywell Aerospace TFE 731-5BR turbofan engines, flat-rated to 4,660 lb (20.7 kN) thrust (sea level, ISA) to ISA+16°C.

Auxiliary power unit (APU)

The Honeywell Aerospace GTCP36-150 Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) is fitted as standard in the Hawker 750. The APU is fully approved for in-flight operation to 30,000ft and provides electrical power and air-conditioning while the aircraft is on the ground without the need to start the aircraft’s main engines.
