The series 800 Hawkers were built in the UK until Raytheon purchased the production rights from Hawker Siddeley in 1993, and two years later the 800XP went into service. Over 1,000 of both models are now flying. The 800XP got an interior upgrade in 1999. Pilots got the Honeywell SPZ 8000 avionics suite or can choose the Rockwell Collins EFIX-86 system as an option. The Hawker 800XP has been extremely well received for fractional aircraft ownership programs, as well as finding service with the U.S. Air Force, the Republic of China and in Japan.
