One of the British avionics industry's best after war outlines, the Hawker Siddeley HS-125 was a standout amongst the best original business planes and in created structure stays in generation with Raytheon (allude separate passage).

The HS-125 began life as a De Havilland extend before that organization got to be some piece of the Hawker Siddeley bunch. As the DH-125 this moderate size corporate plane flew shockingly on August 13 1962. For a period the DH-125 was named the Jet Dragon, while only eight beginning Series 1 generation airplane were assembled before conveyances exchanged to the all the more effective Series 1a (the A postfix indicating North America) and Series 1b (the B signifying deals for world markets). A sum of 77 was manufactured. The Series 2 in the interim was a military subsidiary constructed for Britain's RAF as the Dominie T1 route mentor.

The enhanced Series 3a and 3b (29 fabricated) had a higher terrible weight, while the 3a/RA and 3b/RA (36 manufactured) were heavier still with additional fuel for more prominent reach.

At the point when De Havilland fused into Hawker Siddeley the Series 4, which emphasized various minor refinements, was showcased as the Series 400a and 400b and 116 were manufactured.

The last Viper turbojet controlled 125 fabricated was the Series 600a and 600b. The Series 600 peculiarities an extended fuselage taking standard primary lodge seating from six to eight, or up to 14 in a high thickness design. Different progressions included all the more capable Rollsroyce Viper 601-22 turbojets, protracted vertical tail and ventral blade and a fuel tank in the broadened dorsal balance.

The 600 first flew on January 21 1971 and it turned into the standard creation model until the Garrett TFE-731 turbofan fueled 700 arrangement was presented (depicted independently under Raytheon) in 1976. A few Series 600s were re-engined with TFE-731s as HS-125-F600s.
