The Beechjet 400A is a small twin-engine jet corporate aircraft. Initially designed and built by Mitsubishi, it has been further developed and updated by the Beech Aircraft Company, now part of Hawker Beechcraft.
The Beechjet 400 was originally designed as the Mitsubishi MU-300 Diamond. Beechcraft bought the production rights and began manufacturing it as their own model, initially re-designated as the Beechjet 400. The Beechjet 400 was certificated by the Federal Aviation Administration in May 1986. Raytheon/Beechcraft steadily developed their own improvements to the model, leading to the Beechjet 400A in 1990.
The Beechjet 400A improvements include longer range, higher take-off weights and improved luxury appointments. An all-glass flight deck was also offered.
In 1993 Raytheon purchased the Hawker business jet product line from British Aerospace. The Beechjet 400 was eventually renamed the Hawker 400 to map it into the Hawker product line.
