Beechcraft Corporation, a subsidiary of Textron Aviation, has received FAA certification on all 400XPR program elements. All components of the exclusive factory-approved, engineered and supported upgrade package are available for installation on Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400XP aircraft at Textron Aviation service centers worldwide. The first full Hawker 400XPR factory-completed aircraft is currently in work and expected to deliver later in 2016.
The 400XPR program is fully customizable, can be performed in stages or in unison and can be completed in as little as 12 weeks. The full Hawker 400XPR package includes genuine Hawker winglets and new Williams International FJ44-4A-32 engines, a combination that offers a 33% increase in range along with improvements in runway and hot/high performance. The Hawker 400XPR has a range of 1,970 nautical miles with four passengers departing a 5,000ft elevation airport at 30°C. The Williams International FJ44-4A-32 engines enable the Hawker 400XPR to climb directly to FL450 in 19 minutes at maximum take-off weight.
Customers have the option of retaining their aircraft’s existing Rockwell Collins Pro Line 4 avionics or upgrading with Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics. Customers can also choose between multiple exterior repaint and interior refurbishment options, along with a customized, factory certified re-conditioning that includes Textron Aviation’s ProParts coverage and a five-year Williams International engine warranty.
