Katz accepted the revolutionary aircraft on behalf of Talon Air, Inc., a leader in on-demand luxury air charter services and management. Based at Republic Airport in Farmingdale, N.Y., the boutique private jet charter company owns and operates a fleet of new aircraft and touts itself on offering luxury amenities and concierge service resulting in a seamless travel experience. Their clients include Mick Jagger, Billie Jean King, Martin Scorsese, Andre Agassi, Alonzo Mourning, Jim Courier and many celebrities, business leaders, politicians and athletes.

A renowned real estate developer and lawyer turned aviator, Katz is the largest private owner of Hawker Beechcraft aircraft. The Hawker 4000 is the latest addition to Talon Air's diverse Hawker Beechcraft fleet including a Hawker 850, two Hawker 800XPs, a Hawker 800XPi, three Hawker 400XPs, a Beechjet 400A, Beechcraft King Air B200 and Beechcraft King Air C90GTi.

"It is with great pleasure that I present the segment-leading Hawker 4000 to Mr. Katz and Talon Air," said Brad Hatt, Hawker Beechcraft president, Commercial Sales. "Talon Air prides itself in providing cutting edge service and quality to their passengers. By now offering a Hawker 4000 in their fleet, they will have the ability to showcase this aircraft's outstanding performance and comfort to their elite charter customers."

The Hawker 4000 capacity and range is designed to meet the needs of customers domestically and internationally. The business jet boasts a maximum cruise speed of Mach 0.84 and only a 20-minute climb rate from sea level direct to 41,000 feet (12,497 m), maximizing productivity of customers by getting them quickly to their destination. The combination of its advanced wing design and Pratt & Whitney Canada PW308A engines provide customers with impressive high altitude/hot temperature and short field capability.

Much of the Hawker 4000's standard equipment is optional on competitors' offerings. The Hawker 4000's cockpit features a Honeywell Epic avionics suite with five high-resolution 8 x 10 inch (20 x 25 cm) LCD displays. It also has enhanced situational awareness and flight management systems, backed by real-time system monitoring and status. Ideally suited for long-range operations or long oceanic flights, the Hawker 4000 is equipped with dual IRS (Inertial Reference Systems), dual air-cycle machines and a hydraulic motor driven backup generator.

The groundbreaking aircraft is constructed of advanced composite material, giving the fuselage a true 6 ft. (183 cm) standup cabin. A flat floor runs the entire length of the aircraft, leading to an impressively large 88.5 cubic ft. (2.51 cubic m) baggage area, accessible during flight. The aircraft's standard eight-place configuration interior is fully customizable with a wide variety of materials and cabin finishes available.
