Hawker Beechcraft's fourth and final Hawker 200 twinjet certification aircraft completed its first flight on 31 May in Wichita. The Williams FJ44-3AP-powered business jet joins two modified Premier II flight-test aircraft and another pre-production Hawker 200 on the flightline, where it will be used for systems certification, functionality and reliability testing and interiors certification.

The company is targeting fourth quarter 2012 for certification of the wingletted Premier II replacement.
