I am looking forward to see this new jet made by Pilatus.

Quoting queb (Reply 8):
this market segment is really saturated, it will not be easy
Not really, especially with the death of the Hawker line.
|Quoting queb (Reply 10):|
and why Hawker line is dead ?
|Quoting DiamondFlyer (Reply 11):|
Hawker Beechcraft is no longer such a company. It's Beechcraft. One of the major portions of their bankruptcy dealings they recently went thru was that they dumped the entire Hawker name and line 400, 800/900, 4000. They even went so far as to dump the warranty on recently delivered aircraft.

There was a project of a all-CFRP plane, the Grob G180 SPn: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grob_G180_SPn
A collaboration with Pilatus was proposed, and then Pilatus backed out. The G180 was a business jet that could use unimproved runways. I really wonder if Pilatus has bought the plans to that aircraft after Grob Aerospace went bankrupt.

I know all this, but the manufacturer probably had good reasons to drop Hawker. From 129 deliveries in 2008 to 29 in 2012...
