More Powerful Engines Part Of Overall Upgrade Package
The successful first flight of the Hawker 400XPR engine test article was announced Monday by Hawker Beechcraft Global Customer Support (GCS). This was the first flight of an upgraded aircraft with new Williams International FJ44-4A-32 engines.
The Hawker 400XPR upgrade combines the increased power of the Williams International FJ44-4A-32 engines with the superior aerodynamics of genuine Hawker Winglets. Also available are optional Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics and a number of system enhancements that significantly improve performance, operating cost and resale value. The company anticipates certification in September 2012.
“The first flight of the Hawker 400XPR engine test article is a major milestone and significant achievement for our design and production teams,” said Christi Tannahill, senior vice president, Hawker Beechcraft GCS. “Hawker Beechcraft and its partners spent countless hours and great effort to ensure the Hawker 400XPR exceeds the needs our customers require in their light-jet aircraft. We continue to see great demand for this upgrade in the market and look forward to certification and deliveries commencing later in the year.”
Hawker Beechcraft offers customized XPR upgrade packages for existing Hawker/Beechjet 400 owners as well as XPR Factory Completed Aircraft for those who do not currently own an aircraft. Both the XPR upgrade and Factory Completed Aircraft include performance, cost and reliability enhancements that are available only through Hawker Beechcraft. Importantly, the enhancements are the exclusive factory-designed, engineered and supported upgrades available for the Hawker/Beechjet 400 (pictured in file photo).
