About this aircraft
- The Hawker 800XPi was introduced in 2005 as a follow-up to the 800XP.
- The aircraft boasts a host of upgrades including a new interior and cabin management system.
- Its internal baggage compartment can hold up to seven medium-sized bags.
- The Hawker 800XPi is a popular business jet that’s ideal for mid-range flights.

The Hawker 800XPi is often confused with its predecessor, the 800XP. The upgraded 800XPi features a Rockwell Collins’ Pro Line 21 avionics suite with integrated flight information system (IFIS), plus a new interior and cabin management system.
The 800XPi is also remarkably similar to the 850XP. Both have the same redesigned interior and upgraded avionics, but the 800XPi doesn’t feature Hawker winglets.
Measuring in at 21ft long, 6ft wide and 5ft 8 in tall, the Hawker 800XPi has one of the largest cabins in the midsize category and offers a luxurious inflight experience. The aircraft’s popular ‘VIP Configuration’ seats two crew and eight passengers, offering more space than its closest competitors, along with facilities for preparing hot meals. Some 800XPi’s are configured with six individual seats.
Below are the two typical configurations found on a Hawker 800XPi:

The Hawker 800XPi is fitted with Rockwell Collins avionics as standard. The state-of-the-art ProLine 21 integrated system boasts large LCD displays and cutting-edge technology that improves situational awareness during every phase of flight, while the system can be updated to support the latest standards and the ADS-B Out mandate.
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. Shortly after, the 850XP launched with Hawker winglets for extended range and a redesigned interior featuring a new cabin management system. The 850XP became the blueprint for the Hawker 800XPi, which has the 850XP’s redesigned interior and upgraded avionics but no Hawker winglets.
Hawker Beechcraft Corporation originated in 1994 when Raytheon merged its Beech Aircraft Corporation and Raytheon Corporate Jets units, creating a company that built Beechcraft and Hawker business jet aircraft between 2006 and 2013. The company headquarters was in Wichita, Kansas, United States, and had maintenance and manufacturing locations worldwide.
In 2006, Raytheon sold the company to a consortium of Goldman Sachs and Onex Corporation leaving the company with a heavy burden of debt which it struggled with from the economic crisis of 2008 onwards. In April 2012 it defaulted on interest payments and breached of banking covenants, causing widespread speculation that it would enter bankruptcy.
On May 3, 2012, the company did indeed enter bankruptcy and subsequently accepted an offer to be purchased by Superior Aviation Beijing. However, negotiations for the sale failed and the company decided to exit bankruptcy on its own under a new name, Beechcraft Corporation. The new and much smaller company discontinued the jet line but continued to support the aircraft already produced with parts and engineering.
Beechcraft Corporation was subsequently acquired by Textron Aviation in 2014.
The Hawker 800XPi cost $13 million when it first launched. Nowadays, a pre-owned model will set you back around $2.5 million.
