On November 28, a Flight Options Beechjet 400A experienced a double engine flameout at FL380 while on a positioning flight. The NTSB said the crew made two unsuccessful restart attempts before declaring an emergency and deadsticking the airplane safely to Jacksonville International Airport, Fla. On July 12 last year, another of the fractional provider’s Beechjet 400As similarly experienced a dual flameout over the Gulf of Mexico at FL390 with seven passengers aboard. That crew was able to restart the right engine and safely divert to Sarasota, Fla. The NTSB said in January that in last year’s incident, the twinjet had a lower-than-normal amount of anti-icing additive in its tanks. Beechjet 400As are not equipped with fuel heaters.
