The Beechjet 400A holds up to eight passengers, can travel at a maximum speed of 446 knots, and is made for convenience and efficiency. It can travel at heights of up to 45,000 feet and offers 53 cubic feet of luggage space. Space is maximized and the aircraft offers 180 degree swiveling seats. The cabin has been soundproofed to offer a quieter, more relaxed flight experience for passengers. Ideal for corporate or individual travel, the Beechjet 400A offers a streamlined private jet experience that includes the necessities of private travel while offering the convenience of short range travel for those going from city to city.
The aircraft was originally designed as the Mitsubishi MU-300 Diamond, an all-new, all-jet development to complement and slot above the Mitsubishi MU-2 and provide Mitsubishi Heavy Industries with their top-of-the-line corporate aircraft model (hence the name “Diamond”). Beechcraft bought the production rights and began manufacturing it as their own aircraft model, initially redesignated as the private jet that is Beechjet 400. The Beechjet 400 was certified by the FAA in May 1985.
