Wiki:

The Hawker 900XP is the most advanced business jet in the 800 series, equipped with new Honeywell engines for greater range and the latest Pro Line 21 avionics technology, providing an even safer and more comfortable flight. One of the most used mid-sized jets in the industry, the 900XP boasts an impressive range of 2,733 ktas (5,062 km), allowing for nonstop travel between Colombia and Miami. The spacious, lightweight cabin offers 5.7 feet (174 cm) of headroom, enough to provide a stand-up cabin experience for most passengers. The luxuriously appointed interiors feature adjustable leather seats, a full refreshment center, an enclosed vanity unit, a satellite phone, a DVD player and optional Wi-Fi. with the capacity to comfortably transport 8 or 10 passengers, depending on the configuration adopted, manufactured in the United States from the 1990s by the then Raytheon Aircraft, which used as a basis the project of the BAe-125 twin-engine executive jet by British Aerospace, one of the most successful and respected medium-sized executive jet projects in the history of aviation, a sales success.

In April 1981, the British Aerospace board sanctioned the programme to improve the British Aerospace 125-700 series. By May 1983 the new aircraft was ready for its first test flight.

The BAe 125-800 series has a number of modifications and changes over the 700, the most noticeable being the redesigned cockpit windscreen. Accompanying this are a modified rear fuselage fairing, as well as a glass cockpit and uprated (from 3,700 to 4,300 lb thrust) Garrett TFE731-5R-1H engines. British Aerospace also improved the wing by incorporating new outer wing sections. This helped to reduce drag and improve aerodynamic efficiency.

The 125-800 series would become a sales success. From the first BAe 125 flight in August 1961 it took nineteen years until the 500th airframe was sold. In a little over five years, British Aerospace were registering the 200th sale of the 800 series.

In 1994 Raytheon (which bought Beech Aircraft Corporation in 1980) acquired Corporate Jets. The new entity being known as Raytheon Aircraft. In March 2007, Raytheon divested its aircraft manufacturing business to Hawker Beechcraft Corp., a company formed and controlled by GS Capital Partners and Onex Partners of Canada.

The last version was the Hawker 850XP, which was certified for operation in March 2006.

The 850XP is identical to the 800XP except that it includes winglets, which have extended its operating range by 100 nautical miles (190 km). This version also incorporates upgraded avionics and a redesigned interior. The Hawker 850XP essentially fills the gap left behind by the Hawker 1000 when production of that aircraft ceased. In 2006, its unit cost was $13,786,100.

Two new variants were announced in October 2006 for future deliveries:

The Hawker 750, in which the ventral fuel tank is replaced by an externally accessed baggage pannier, which reduces range slightly.
The Hawker 900XP, using new Honeywell TFE731-50BR engines for increased range. In 2012, its unit cost was US$ 16.07 million.
After the 2013 bankruptcy of Hawker Beechcraft, the surviving company, Beechcraft, discontinued its business jet range, including the 800 series, although the designs are still supported for parts.

By 2018, a 1980s-era 700s was priced for less than $500,000, a 1995 800A at $1.02 million and a 2012 900XP at $6 million.

    A brief warning: I'm finally working, and because I'm going to slow down the production of my aircraft, I'll try to post them only on weekends, Thanks for the comprehension.

    @MAPA Since you didn't understand then I'll explain that @LUCAS2077 then asked him to make a Learjet 25D with the prefix PT-LSD on the engine.
    Did you understand?
