Made by Beechcraft Corporation, the Hawker 850XP is one of the charter market’s most versatile and reliable mid-size private jets. Its large cabin makes this aircraft the ideal size for eight passengers to fly medium-haul journeys in comfort and luxury.
About this aircraft
- Certified in 2006, 100 Hawker 850XPs were built before production ended in 2009.
- Based on the 800XP and 800XPi, the 850XP features Hawker blended winglets that make it more aerodynamic than its predecessors.
- The aircraft’s usual configuration allows for eight passengers in the cabin, with a three-seat divan at the rear and five individual seats.
- There’s space on board for up to seven medium suitcases.
- The Hawker 850XP is ideal for flights of up to five hours.
The 850XP is remarkably similar to its predecessor, the 800XPi. Both have the same redesigned interior and upgraded Rockwell Collins’ ProLine 21 avionics suite, but the 800XPi doesn’t have Hawker winglets.
The Hawker 850XP is renowned for its spacious cabin with stand-up headroom, LCD lights, touch-screen seat controls, fully-berthable seats and plenty of storage. The ‘VIP Configuration’ seats two crew and eight passengers with more space than its closest competitors.

Interesting facts to learn before you fly

- The aircraft is ideal for domestic and international travel and can fly for up to five hours (depending on variables like weight and travel conditions).
Aside from the winglets, the 850XP is identical to the 800XPi. Both aircraft are powered by two Honeywell TFE731-5BR engines with 4,660 lbs of thrust.
The 850XP’s avionics suite features four adaptive screens displaying navigation, terrain awareness warning systems, weather, reduced vertical separation minimum and enhanced ground proximity warning systems. The system is set up intuitively to decrease workload while increasing safety and awareness in the cockpit.
The 850XP is the third model in the Hawker 800 series and was the first to feature Hawker Beechcraft blended winglets, resulting in a quicker climbing time, improved range and less drag than its predecessors.
The 800A and 800XP are the most popular Hawker 800 models. Available from 1995, the XP’s cabin remained identical to the 800A’s with the addition of an external baggage compartment. The model’s engines were upgraded to slightly more powerful AlliedSignal TFE731-5BRs to boost cruise speed, range, take-off and landing performance.
In 2002, Hawker began equipping its 800 series with Rockwell Collins’ ProLine 21 avionics, replacing the Dual Collins ProLine system found on older models and releasing them as the Hawker 800 XPi. Shortly after, the 850XP launched with Hawker winglets for extended range.
The Hawker series was originally developed by aircraft manufacturer de Havilland, with the first HS.125 launching in 1964 after the company was bought by Hawker Siddeley. The aircraft underwent several reincarnations over the years, first as the BH.125 and later as the BAe 125 when Hawker Siddeley merged with the British Aircraft Corporation to form British Aerospace in 1977.
After Raytheon acquired the company’s business jets division in 1993, the jet was marketed as part of the Hawker 800 series. In 2013, the type certificate and support responsibility for all 125s were transferred to the reformed Beechcraft Corporation, a brand of Textron Aviation since 2014.
The cost of a Hawker 850XP usually ranges between $4.5 million and $5.1 million.
