Developments to the Beechjet 400 led to the 1,520nm Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400A with a cabin typically configured for seven passengers. Improvements over the straight 400 light jet model include the Maximum Take-Off Weight and an all-glass flight deck.
We average between 5 and 6 pax per leg. It is routine for us to operate with 7 or 8 pax. For these loads the Beechjet is very limited on range and cabin comfort is undesireable. The airplane is very well built and highly reliable. I feel that this airplane offers good value for the right operator who flies with no more that 5 pax and does not need long legs.
