Aircraft sales & acquisitions
At a certain point, the rationale for purchasing an aircraft becomes greater than the recurring expense of chartering. A general rule is that if you fly around 150 hours a year, charter is your best option. Between 150 and 250, you may wish to consider fractional or shared ownership. And skyward of that, it is time to start thinking about owning.

Hawker Beechcraft’s Hawker 4000, more commonly known as the Hawker Horizon, has been serving its owners well since it went into service in 2005.Hawker Beechcraft had high hopes for this private jet – they designed it to meet the high standards of comfort and performance required in the super mid-sized category of aircraft. To give the 4000 a competitive edge, Hawker Beechcraft selected a carbon fiber fuselage, making the 4000 the first business jet to use one. Hawker 4000’s closest competitor, the Challenger 300, is so similar in many areas that it seems the two private jets were designed with the other mind.
The long-range business jet features an enhanced variation of the 850XP’s winglets, increasing hot/high-altitude and cruise performance and range. On the runway in hot/high conditions, the 900X Prequires 1,800 feet less runway for a 2,000 nautical mile trip with six passengers. It can complete coast-to-coast trips, Teterboro to Seattle for example.
With a cabin as roomy as the 850XP’s, it’s now under Raytheon chose to reuse the design for the 900XP. With a 604 cubic ft.cabin, the aircraft surpasses all others in its class. Features of the cabin include stand-up headroom, LCD lighting, touch-screen seat controls,fully-berthable seats and plenty of in-cabin storage. The cabin accommodates eight passengers.
The 900XP business jet offers unbeatable fuel efficiency, performance, intuitiveness and comfort. Although improved from earlier Hawker models, the 850XP lacks the power and range of the 900XP. It is simply more machine.
Piaggio Avanti II (PA180)
