The 2012 version of the Hawker review is just about done. We don’t have too many major changes to report this year other than the pending Netjets dumping of their series and which serial numbers this will affect most adversely. All in all it has been a brutal 4 years for the type, though the XPR upgrade for the later models proves hopeful for the charter management and fractional owners.

The XPR upgrade does breathe new life into the select later few, but the future challenge of this type will be managing the direct operating costs and seeing how this fits into a charter market that has become competitive with 50% of the ecosystem gutted since 2008.
