The Hawker 800 is a mid-size twinjet private jet. It is a development of the British Aerospace BAe 125, and was assembled by Hawker Beechcraft.

The first flight for a H800 took place on June 26, 1983 and was a redesign of the Hawker 700 series of aircraft.  A number of modifications and changes took place over the 700 series, the most striking change, being the redesigned cockpit windscreen.

Also, a modified rear fuselage fairing, as well as a glass cockpit and uprated  to Garrett TFE731-5R-1H engines,  also improving the wing by incorporating new outer wing sections. This helped to reduce drag and improve aerodynamic efficiency.
