Description

The Model 390 Premier I is an all new entry level corporate jet designed to compete head on with Cessna's highly successful CitationJet/CJ1/2 series. The Premier I was designed using CATIA computer aided design. Features include its composite carbonfibre/epoxy honeycomb fuselage, swept metal construction wings, T-tail and two WilliamsRolls FJ-44 turbofans. The composite fuselage is an important feature for a number of reasons. Firstly, advanced production techniques (using computer controlled automated machines) means a Premier I fuselage can be constructed in just one day, whereas a conventional airframe would require one to two weeks to complete. The composite construction also allows greater (approx 13%) internal cabin space compared with a conventional construction fuselage of the same external dimensions. The Premier I is certificated for single pilot operations. The flightdeck features the new Collins Pro Line 21 EFIS avionics suite with two 20 x 25cm (8 x 10in) flat panel LCDs. Hawker launched the Premier 1A in 2006, with improved brakes, a new interior and an Integrated Flight Information System (i.e. Electronic Charts) on the Multi Function Display (MFD).
