British Aerospace's new BAe 1000, derived from the BAe 125-800, made its first flight in June 1990 from Chester. The BAe 1000 is billed as an intercontinental range, mid-sized, corporate jet.
The most obvious visual difference compared with the 125 Srs 800 is the lengthened fuselage with a more prominent external ventral fairing containing more fuel, stretched in size (84cm) as well as range (by 21 percent to 3635 nm). The cabin is deeper and there is space for a maximum of 15 in high density seating.
Engines: 2 x Pratt & Whitney Canada PW305 turbofans, 5,200 lb st (23,13 kN).
