The Hawker 1000 is a super mid jet with intercontinental range capabilities and comfortable seating for up to 9 passengers. The cabin of the Hawker 1000 can come in a traditional or a biomorphic design. The biomorphic design has smooth curves and it increases passenger comfort and useful space. The cabin stretches to 24.4 feet long (not including the cockpit), 17.1 feet high, and 6 feet wide. It is usually configured to hold nine seats, but can hold as many as fifteen. Two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW305 turbofan engines power the Hawker 1000, providing 5,255 pounds of thrust each on takeoff. A new design to reduce engine noise puts out exhaust at a slower velocity, thus producing only 90 EPNdB for a noise footprint of 1.6 square miles (a noise footprint is the area in which listeners would be significantly affected by jet engine noise). For comparison, the noise footprint of a typical twin turboprop would be 4.2 square miles. The Hawker 1000 can take off in 5,950 feet at sea level and in 8,075 feet at an altitude of 5,000 feet. The Hawker 1000 can cruise at up to 453 knots (.68 Mach) at an altitude of 37,000 feet. Its long range cruise speed is 400 knots (.60 Mach) while flying at 41,000 feet. The Hawker 1000 has a maximum range of 3,530 miles (3,071 nautical miles). See the video here
