The BeechJet 400 was originally designed in Japan by Mitsubishi to complement its MU-2 turboprop with a top-of-the-line corporate jet, and was originally named the “Diamond” (Mitsubishi MU-300 Diamond Jet).

Mitsubishi built 89 original MU300s, and created an improved variant known as the Diamond IA, aiming to meet Part 25 takeoff requirements by tweaking the P&WC turbofans; 11 models were built, which were later rebranded as the Beechjet 400s.

In 1985, Mitsubishi sold the aircraft’s rights to Beechcraft, who started working their own version. A year later, the Model 400 was introduced, followed by the 400A in 1989. The 400A was designed to increase range, increase take-off weight, add more amenities to the cabin, and offer an all-glass cockpit.

Beech built 421 of the 400/400A before Raytheon acquired Hawker business jets from British Aerospace in 1993, who briefly offered the Raytheon Beechjet 400A, and later introduced the Hawker 400 and Hawker 400XP.

The Beechjet series, most notably the Model 400A, remains a strong competitor in the light jet charter market.
