The first three aircraft in Beechcraft’s Hawker 400XPR upgrade program are undergoing final airframe modifications, the Wichita aircraft manufacturer announced yesterday. The first customer aircraft had a Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics system installed last year as part of the upgrade, and it recently returned to Beechcraft for additional modifications, including the installation of winglets and Williams FJ44-4A-32 engines. The second and third aircraft are also receiving new engines and winglets. They are expected to be finished in the first half of this year.
