The Hawker 400XP is the product of years of revision by Raytheon’s Beechjet Aircraft Corporation. They originally purchased the production rights for the jet from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in Japan. Mitsubishi had designed it to be the best private jet available in the charter business jet industry, and appropriately dubbed it the Mitsubishi MU-300 Diamond. Beechcraft modified the design and began to manufacture it in their aircraft facility in Kansas. They called it the Beechjet 400.
For five years after the Beechjet 400’s release, Beechcraft continued to improve its design and released the Beechjet 400A. The 400A model saw a redesign of the fuel system, a longer flight range, and a higher takeoff weight. From there, the design underwent even more revisions, materializing in the Hawker 400XP, a private jet that Hawker Beechcraft calls its “best-selling light jet.”
