Hawker Premier 1
A small business jet for up to 6 passengers.
The Hawker Beechcraft Premier I is a unique private jet with a fuselage made of rigid and lightweight rolled graphite and epoxy laminate. This technology makes the aircraft incredibly strong and allows the cabin to have 15 percent greater interior volume.
Raytheon, the manufacturer of the Hawker Beechcraft Premier I, utilised this extra space to give the cabin a number of features which have served to make this aircraft a popular choice for private jet rentals. The spacious interior of the Premier I has allowed the installation of four fully adjustable extra wide seats which can swivel, slide and recline to maximise passenger convenience. Behind these four seats which are arranged in a club class configuration, there are two fixed position chairs.
The cabin of the Hawker Beechcraft Premier I also features a beverage centre with snack and ice drawers and space for storage of hot and cold drinks. Baggage capacity at 77 cubic feet is amongst the best in its class.
The Premier I is also equipped with an electric-flushing chemical toilet. The cabin’s interior dimensions are extremely generous for a private plane in the light jet category and its height of 65 inches and width of 66 inches serves to make it an exceedingly comfortable air charter aircraft.
Automatically controlled cabin pressurisation is another standard feature in the Hawker Beechcraft Premier I that serves to increase passenger comfort. Large windows add to the private jet’s appeal making it the preferred choice of business and leisure travellers looking for the comfort of a mid-sized plane and the economy of a light jet.
The Premier I’s two Williams FJ44-2A turbofans give it sufficient power to achieve its certified service ceiling of 41,000 feet and a range of 1,430 nautical miles. These features, and especially the large cabin, make the Hawker Beechcraft Premier I amongst the best options in its class for short to medium range private jet charters.
