The Hawker 850XP can trace its’ roots right back to 1961. Now, most would think that such an old design is way behind the times. But they’d be wrong. The Hawker 850XP has staying power. The original design, only slightly refined throughout the years has produced one of, if not the finest mid size cabin business jets ever. Just as with many other jets, small refinements over the years has made this the Hawker continue to perform.
Having been in production since 1963 shows how the British really got his aircraft right from the start.
The 850XP variant differs from its siblings in that it offers increased performance as well as better appearance. The increase in performance are from three different sources. The most important being upgraded versions of Honeywell’s venerable TFE731 engine. This engine family has over 100 miliion flight hours since being introduced. The 850XP takes advantage of the additional thrust provided by this variant to offer better performance numbers and increased range. The 850XP also incorporates winglets to add increased range, to the tune of 100 miles. The difference may seem small, but when the extra distance is needed, the winglets are sure a re nice to have, plus they look great. Slight improvements to the outer wing section further reduce drag and increase range, allowing the 850XP to stay competitive over the years.
Upgraded avionics are another reason why the 850XP maintains its’ leadership in the mid-size cabin segment. The Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite is an impressive addition to the aircraft. It has been continued on with the 900XP, as well as the 750. Interior updates add to the package that make the 850XP one of the most sought after mid size business jets. Stepping inside of one will convince you of just that.
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”.
