As a best-selling light jet, the Hawker 400XP is perfect for short- and medium-range missions. The 400XP’s design can trace its origins back to the Mitsubishi Diamond, which was purchased by Raytheon and underwent several updates as the Beechjet 400 and 400A. Textron Beechcraft later updated the 400A to the 400XP starting in 2004, with production ending in 2011. An upgraded version, the Hawker 400XPR, upgraded performance with updates to the engines and avionics when it was first delivered in 2017.
Overall, the Hawker 400XP offers unique-to-its-class space, impressive speed, and exceptional handling capabilities. It’s a favorite among pilots and passengers alike due to its reliability and the increased comfort of the cabin—it always delivers seamless travel experiences.
HAWKER 400XP FEATURES
Passengers will notice the Hawker 400XP’s cabin feels roomier and more comfortable thanks to an innovative square-oval design. The cabin, which typically seats seven, measures 15.5 feet long, 4.8 feet high, and 4.9 feet wide, for a total cabin volume of about 306 cubic feet. The jet’s 51 cubic feet of baggage space—27 cubic feet of which can be accessed while in flight—is enough to hold 6-7 suitcases or 3-4 golf bags. Additionally, the cabin receives an abundance of natural light with five windows on each side of the jet.
The Hawker 400XP is equipped with two Pratt and Whitney Canada JT15D-5 engines, which each produce 2,965 pounds of thrust and burn 214 gallons of fuel per hour. These engines power the 400XP to it’s impressive climb rate—it can race to 37,000 feet in just 18 minutes. It has a range of about 1,333 nautical miles when flying with four passengers, NBAA IFR reserves, and a 200 nautical mile alternate.
Other improvements over the Hawker 400A include an increase in gross weight of 200 pounds (meaning it can carry even more passenger or fuel weight), as well as a redesigned fuel system.
The Hawker 400XP’s cockpit is equipped with the elite Rockwell Collins Pro Line 4 EFIS (electronic flight and information system). In the flight deck, pilots have access to a traffic alert and collision avoidance system, an enhanced ground proximity warning system, and a built-in diagnostics system for superior dependability and lower maintenance costs. The Collins Pro Line 4 also comes with enhanced navigational maps and geo-referencing technology to help guide the pilot while in the air.
