The Hawker 700 has its origins in the de Havilland DH.125 medium-sized corporate jet which first flew in August 1962. A total of 77 units were built by de Havilland before the company was absorbed by Hawker Siddeley. Following the merger, the design was refined to produce the -400 series and then the -600 series, whose stretched fuselage increased main cabin seating capacity from six passengers to eight, or as many as fourteen in a high-density arrangement. A new model, the HS.125-700, made its first flight in June 1976. Powered by Garrett TFE731-3R-1H engines, the -700 offered substantial improvements in cruise speed and range along with reduced fuel consumption. The -700 received US and UK certification in mid-1977, with initial deliveries that same year. A total of 243 units were produced before the -700 was replaced by the HS.125-800 in 1984. The Hawker 700 is normally configured to accommodate eight passengers in a standard double-club arrangement.
