Question Hawker 4000 FTH?

Hi everyone,

Anybody knows how many flight test hours were logged on the Hawker 4000 development program?

From what I found online, the program had its first flight in August 2001 and was certified in November 2006, but I'm curious as to how many hours and how many FTVs were part of the program.

Thanks for the info!!

A lot of work then didnt meet some FAA deadline, then had to re do the entire program, I was told something like that on the course. Hour specific no idea. No more or less than any other aircraft I expect.

The plane started as the "Horizon", then Huge issue of tail flutter, couldn't meet the time limit for certification after some exemptions they had to restart most of the test program. To finally ditch the airplane..
