Private jet Raytheon BeechJet 400XP - A bit of history.

Raytheon BeechJet 400XP was born after years of studies by the American aeronautical company Beechjet Aircraft Corporation of Raytheon.

You should know that the company purchased the production rights of this private jet from the Japanese Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, which had designed it to be the best private jet available in the business jet charter industry (so much so that it was called Mitsubishi MU-300 Diamond).

Anyway, the Diamond remained at the prototype stage until Beechcraft, after purchasing the rights, modified its design and started producing it in its company in Kansas, also changing its name to Beechjet 400.

For five years after the birth of the Beechjet 400, the company continued to study to improve its design, then arriving at the production of the Beechjet 400A. This model, compared to the previous one, had a new feeding system, greater flight autonomy and a higher maximum take-off weight.

Following these changes, Beechcraft made further revisions to the design by making its latest version, in 2013, the Hawker 400XP (now Raytheon BeechJet 400XP).

Let's see, now, what are the characteristics of this private charter jet. In this way you will know exactly which flight experience to expect from his rental for your holidays, business trips or any other goal.

Travel inside the cabin of the Raytheon BeechJet 400XP

When you fly aboard the private jet Raytheon BeechJet 400XP, you will certainly not be able to notice its very spacious cabin. This feeling is not given so much by the real dimensions of the cabin, which are however very similar to the aircraft of the same category as the 400XP, but by the way the company organized the spaces.

The numerous studies on the design of the plane particularly concerned its interior design: the result is a passenger cabin 4.75 meters long and 1.50 meters wide with a flat and oval floor, characteristics that maximize the usable space.

Our private jet Raytheon BeechJet 400XP can comfortably accommodate up to 7 passengers and the internal space for luggage is 1.50 cubic meters. It is therefore an ideal plane if you are planning a family holiday or with friends, or if you are planning a business trip in the company of some colleague.

The layout of the passenger cabin provides essential but extremely useful comforts during a flight:

  • Refreshment area
  • Electrical outlets
  • Phone
  • Satellite radio
  • Headphones
  • Speakers in the cabin
  • Toilet
  • Air conditioning with airplane on the ground

Also know that we can configure the interiors to your liking, so that they perfectly adapt to your travel needs.

What can you do on board the Raytheon BeechJet 400XP?

The Raytheon BeechJet 400XP, also known as Hawker 400XP, can accommodate up to 7 passengers. But the seats are not fixed: you can change their arrangement as you wish. For example, you can move them all forward to watch a movie together with your friends or family or to develop a business presentation.

A mobile bar stocked with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, which allows you to sip a drink in total relaxation with your travel companions, contributes to making the flight experience excellent and relaxing.

If you wish, we can also organize a catering on board with food and beverage of your preference, so as to make your trip even more pleasant and organized.

Furthermore, when the number of passengers is limited, it is possible to convert the armchairs into two parallel beds.
