The Hawker 800XP is one of the most successful private jets that British Aerospace has ever made. It is a third-generation model of the 800 series, and is similar in part to the ubiquitous Hawker 400XP. It is designed to complete transcontinental flights, as well as have good short range capabilities.

The cabin of the Hawker 800XP is typically configured with six to eight seats. The seats are fully adjustable and can swivel 360°. Different soundproofing options are available, but cabin noise levels usually stay in the low 70-decibel range. The cabin itself measures 21.3 feet long, 5.7 feet high and 6 feet wide. There is a baggage compartment accessible in-flight which holds 48 cubic feet of luggage.

The Hawker 800XP can climb to an altitude of 37,000 feet in twenty minutes, where it can reach its high cruise speed of 447 knots. For long range cruise speeds, the Hawker 800XP flies at 39,000 feet at a speed of 400 knots. If needed, it can fly up to 41,000 feet to avoid traffic or weather. The cabin is pressurized to 8.6 psi, meaning that it can maintain a sea level cabin at 22,200 feet.

The Hawker 800XP strikes an impressive balance between fuel economy, climb and cruise performance, and takeoff distance.
