Introduced in 1977, the hawker 700A has endured thanks to its durability, spacious stand-up cabin and bargain prices.The Hawker 700A is unquestionably a workhorse. The Hawker 700's passenger compartment is bigger than that of competitive airplanes, such as the Learjet 55 and Citation III.It seats up to eight (plus the two pilots up front) and is 21 feet long, six feet wide and almost six feet tall. The standard cabin layout features five single slide-swivel-reclining executive seats and a three-place side-facing divan. You'll also find a minimalist forward galley and an aft lavatory through which you access the baggage hold. While the 604-cubic-foot cabin is spacious, the baggage compartment, at 40 cubic feet, is woefully inadequate for today's take-it-all-with-me jet set.The Hawker 700A can fly almost 2,000 nautical miles with seats full. Available payload with full fuel is 1,350 pounds. Hawkers have been around since 1962 and perhaps no business jet has a longer history of evolutionary performance improvement.
