                                               Damage History


Historical Damage: Several tail numbers were used in the aircraft maintenance records/log books. These were: N736LE, N800AF, N731MS, N852A, and N112M. There were also different aircraft serial numbers listed in the maintenance records/log books. A search of the NTSB database showed no records (for a Hawker) for either of the tail numbers listed above.

Comments: The aircraft has full instrumentation as well as co-pilot instruments. The actual instruments and equipment in the panel are in poor condition. Most of the equipment and/or instruments will most likely need to be overhauled.







The appraiser could not obtain an accurate list of all installed avionics. The aircraft has the typical avionics installed on a 1980’s vintage mid size jet.  There does not appear to be many modern upgrades to the avionics.  Due to the aircraft sitting and unused for so long it is likely that a lot of the equipment will not function properly when powered up.
