Overview

The Beechjet 400 is a twin turbofan light business jet that evolved from the Mitsubishi MU–300 Diamond; the MU-300 first flew on 29 August, 1978 and was certificated in November 1981.

Beechcraft acquired the Pratt & Whitney JT15D-powered aircraft in 1985, then redesigned the interior, increased fuel capacity and offered optional thrust reversers. The first Beech-assembled aircraft rolled out in May 1986. It can be flown by a crew of two and accommodates up to nine passengers.

September 1989 saw the first flight of the upgraded Beechjet 400A. New features included more powerful JT15D-5 engines, Pro Line 4 avionics, higher gross weight, improved performance and a larger cabin. FAA certification was granted in June 1990 and deliveries commenced in November of the same year.

After Raytheon Aircraft acquired the Hawker line in 1993 the Beechjet 400 was renamed the Hawker 400, and in 2003 the manufacturer introduced the improved 400XP; longer range, faster climbs, lower operating costs, improved high and hot field performance and enhanced technology.

Nextant Aerospace developed a programme to remanufacture the Hawker 400 as the Nextant 400XT, replacing the JT15D engines with 3,050 lbf Williams FJ44-3AP FADEC powerplants and adding Pro Line 21 avionics. The completely remanufactured aircraft made its first test flight in March 2010 and earned FAA certification on 5 October, 2011.
