Raytheon's Hawker Horizon is an all new `super fair size' corporate plane.

Configuration deal with what turned into the Horizon was underway when Raytheon Corporate Jets and Beech consolidated in ahead of schedule 1995 to structure Raytheon Aircraft. The new outline, at first marked Pd376 and later Horizon 1000, was one of three tasks the new Raytheon Aircraft was chipping away at, alongside what turned into the Premier I. Raytheon worked nearly with potential clients for the trade for the Hawker 1000 in the configuration definition stage, and their info specifically affected the bearing of the new air ship.

Raytheon formally published the Hawker Horizon promptly preceding the National Business Aircraft Association's yearly tradition in November 1996. The Horizon is because of make its first flight in late 1999, took after by certificate and first conveyances in the northern spring of 2001.

One of Raytheon's configuration theories in creating the Horizon is to join together the prior Hawkers' mainstream qualities with cutting edge advances. Accomplished Hawker originators structured the center of the Horizon's configuration group and the air ship has been deliberately intended to look and feel like a Hawker.

Contrasted with the Hawker 1000 the Horizon will have a more extensive, marginally more fuselage with a level carpet and remained up headroom and a two ton heavier max takeoff weight. The Horizon will offer an all composite fuselage which will be produced utilizing the robotized fiber situation engineering created for the Premier I. The composite fuselage spares weight and builds lodge volume. The empennage offers an aluminum sub structure and carbonfibre skin.

Force will be from two digitally controlled Pratt & Whitney Canada Pw308a turbofans. P&wc is a danger offering accomplice in the project, as is flying integrator Honeywell (the Horizon will gimmick Honeywell's Primus Epic flight suite with five level board shade Lcds).

The Horizon's new metal development supercritical 30o range, behind stacked wing will be constructed by Fuji Heavy Industries of Japan, an alternate danger offering accomplice, and will pass underneath the fuselage. Other danger offering accomplices incorporate Messier-Dowty (arriving apparatus), Sundstrand, Vickers and Alliedsignal (APU and natural control framework).
