If you’re in need of a jet that can transport you for trips both near and far, a Beechjet 400 charter is calling your name. When you’re not ready to buy, a charter is a savvy option that can help you learn what you like (or don’t like) and get you from Point A to Point B in the best possible way. This jet in particular is a safe bet whether you’re just starting with charters or already a seasoned professional.
Manufactured by Hawker Beechcraft in 1990 through 1998, this jet is one of the most widely recognized light business jets on the market. It was designed as a polished version of the Mitsubishi Diamond 2 and predecessor to the Hawker 400XP, another highly trusted aircraft that’s made for ultimate enjoyment.
Classified as a light jet, you can comfortably seat six to seven guests, and if you need a little extra room, there’s even seating in the lavatory with a seatbelt.

About the Beechjet 400 Charter
Beech has a strong history of leadership, along with a seemingly innate ability to provide quality, reliable jets, so it’s no surprise that its Beechjet 400 is one of the most requested by name private aircraft.
The Beechjet series was first designed as the Mitsubishi MU-300 Diamond. This aircraft took flight in 1978, but then Beechcraft purchased production rights from the company. In 1986, it was certified and dubbed the Beechjet 400.
The Beechjet 400 charter is ideal for solo travelers and small groups alike, whether you’re traveling for business or leisure travel. You won’t have to limit yourself to short flights or stop over for refueling because of its ability to take you on medium to long journeys.
Beechcraft has produced over 400 business jets in the Beechjet 400 and Beechjet 400A class. Even though the last jet came off the line years ago, they continue to maintain a strong presence in private aviation and provide prime travel conditions for those on the charter.
Inside the Beechjet 400 Charter
Now, let’s dive into the interior of the Beechjet 400 charter. Cabin dimensions of 15’6″ in length, and 4’9″ in ceiling height, and a cabin volume of 344 cubic feet offers comfortable seating for up to seven passengers, allowing you to travel with your business partners or on your own. However, keep in mind that some cabin configurations can vary between charter, so talk to your aircraft charter broker when booking to ensure there’s room for your entire entourage.
The jet’s all-leather seats are more comfortable than what you’d find on a first class commercial flight, and the entertainment console is within easy reach to help you pass the time while in the air. Or, if you’re hoping to stay productive, the cabin offers executive tables and refreshment storage.
And don’t hesitate to pack a little heavy. The 59 cubic feet of luggage storage will allow you to bring whatever you need on the flight. Even with its smaller size, the Beechcraft 400 also offers an enclosed lavatory for privacy and convenience.
Performance and Capabilities
Being able to get to your destination without delay could mean the difference in winning business and losing out on a deal. When you are flying in the luxury space within the Beechjet 400, you never have to worry about whether your flight is going to make it on time.
When you need to travel over a long distance quickly, the Beechjet 400 charter will get you there, thanks to a cruise speed of 513 MPH and a range 1,350 nautical miles. The jet gets its power from two Pratt and Whitney of Canada JT15D-5 turbo-fan engines ensuring you’re able to get to your destination quickly and effortlessly.
Interestingly, the Beechjet 400A was flown by the military under the name T-1 Jayhawk tanker and transport aircrew trainer. Its highly dependable nature and ability to go long distances won the military over.
This aircraft has the ability to hold close to 5,000 pounds of fuel if the takeoff conditions are ideal. If weather conditions aren’t extreme, the flight can go as long as four hours before needing to refuel.
When you think of safe and reliable travel – think Beechjet 400. You have plenty of travel flexibility in terms of distance and airport location, combined with a level of luxury that rivals any first class seat on a commercial flight.
