Hawker Beechcraft is accelerating Hawker 400XPR development by adding a second aircraft to the test program. Slated for certification next year, the 400XPR offers improved range and airfield performance compared with the temporarily suspended 400XP, while reducing noise and emissions by replacing the existing engines with new Williams FJ44-4A-32 turbofans. The upgrade also features the addition of composite winglets and an optional modernized flight deck with Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics.
