Aircraft Details

The Hawker 400XP provides flexibility, low operating costs, and comfort, all in one convenient package.

Designed by Hawker Beechcraft as a light jet with highly desired attributes of much larger jets, the Hawker 400XP offers a spacious cabin, innovative technology, and low operating costs.

Previous names of the 400XP variant (Hawker 400) include the Beechcraft Beechjet 400A; Raytheon Beechjet 400A; and Raytheon Hawker 400XP.


The Hawker 400XP’s cabin isn’t any larger than previous models in the Beechjet 400 series in regards to square footage – only the layout changed. Thanks to its unique shape known as “vertical squared-oval” by Hawker Beechcraft, passengers can enjoy the one of roomiest cabins in the light jet class.

The square-oval design provides more head and shoulder room while incorporating a flat floor, making it easier to move around the cabin easier – a welcome feature during longer flights. Seating is available for up 8 passengers in center-club arrangement, and there’s a private lavatory and galley section on board.

Travelers can also store their luggage in the expanded rear baggage hold for easy access to your belongings during your flight.


Although it’s an appealing option even from the tarmac, the Hawker 400XP truly shines when it’s in the air. Cruising at speeds of more than four hundred knots and powered by fuel-efficient Pratt & Whitney JT15D-5 turbofan engines, the Hawker 400XP performs very stable within its flight envelope, and is considered a very reliable business jet.

Hawker/Beechcraft upgraded the original Beechjet 400A to the Hawker 400A for extra payload, and incorporated aerodynamic, mechanical and interior improvements with the Hawker 400XP; some of these same upgrades were utilized on the Hawker 800XP midsize jet.

Other upgrades to the Hawker 400XP include the Collins avionics package, featuring the traffic alert and collision avoidance system (TCAS II), an enhanced ground proximity warning system (EGPWS), and a built-in diagnostics system for superior dependability and lower cost of maintenance.

Nextant 400XT

Nextant re-manufactures the 400XP as the Nextant 400XT, replacing the Pratt & Whitney JT15Ds engines with Williams FJ44s, and adding new avionics and a redesigned interior.

Up to a third of the current 400A/400XP fleet can be retrofitted, enabling improved range, speed, and fuel efficiency. This should will hold resale value and remain service for another 20 to 30 years, much like the Falcon 20s retrofitted with TFE731s engines.

Hawker 400XPR

In 2012, Beechcraft introduced an upgrade package to the 400XP known as the 400XPR. This OEM supported & engineered upgrade features new avionics, a redesigned interior, aerodynamic winglets, and Williams FJ44-4A-32 engines.

As result, the Hawker 400XPR provides 33% more range (increased to 2,160 nmi / 4,000 km with 4 passengers), better hot runway and high altitude performance, and a fast 19 minute climb to 45,000 feet at max takeoff weight.

The first fully configured model was delivered in 2017, and the upgrade can be performed in as little as 12 weeks with an option for either Rockwell Collins Pro Line 4 to 21 or Garmin G5000 avionics on the flight deck.
