The Hawker Beechjet 400A/XP is one of the most popular light jet aircraft due to its cabin size, speed and reliability. The aircraft is operated domestically and internationally in many missions. The drawback of the 400A/XP, and most of its competitive aircraft, is its range. The 400A/XP has a range of only 1,333 nm with 4 passengers and IFR reserves. This is largely due to the inefficiencies of the Pratt and Whitney JT15D-5 engine and certain aerodynamic inefficiencies within the aircraft nacelle design. The JT15D engine was one of the earliest high bypass turbo fan engines and thus it is heavy, has high fuel consumption and is costly to maintain.
