Developed from the Premier IA, the Premier II features higher cruise speeds, a 20% longer range with four passengers and an increased payload, much of which was due to new engines and wingtips, meaning that it can achieve further ranges with the same amount of fuel. In late 2011, it was rebranded as the Hawker 200.
The Premier I offers a unique stand-up cabin in the light jet category, capable of seating up to six passengers. Indeed, it has a considerably spacious cabin for a light jet aircraft, with folding tables, four club seats, two forward seats and a partitioned aft toilet. The IA variant saw improved cabin features and systems.
The Hawker 400XP is the product of years of revision by the Hawker Beechcraft Corporation which originally purchased the rights of the jet from Mitsubishi, in 1986. Since then, it has seen numerous developments to both its technological features and its cabin, resulting in the 400, 400XP and the more recent 400XPR variant. It holds seven passengers comfortably, in a seating arrangement which has been redesigned over the years, in an oval-shaped flat-floor cabin.
