Raytheon Aircraft took its first three orders for the $14.5 million Hawker Horizon "super mid-size" business jet within hours of unveiling at NBAA in Orlando a one-third-scale model of the aircraft, which is scheduled to be flown in late 1999 and certificated by June 2001. Raytheon describes the Horizon as "the biggest and best Hawker yet". The Pratt & Whitney Canada PW308A-powered aircraft will replace the Hawker 1000. Raytheon is planning to build 20-25 Horizons a year. See NBAA show coverage, pages 8-12.
