The Nextant 400XT is an upgraded (re-manufactured) version of both the BeechJet 400 and Hawker 400XP, two of the most popular light jets available for charter. These jets were transformed from nose to tail to optimize performance and functionality, while lowering the overall operational costs. The Nextant 400 XTi was later launched as an improved version of the Nextant 400 XT. The improved Nextant boasts new engines, improvements in aerodynamics, a new avionics suite and completely redesigned cabin. Compared to its predecessor, the Hawker 400XP, the Nextant 400XT/XTi is faster and can fly 50 percent further while consuming significantly less fuel. 88% of the Nextant 400XT/XTi aircraft is new and improved compared to the BeechJet 400/Hawker 400XP.
The Nextant 400XT/XTi has a virtually silent cabin that passengers love for both its comfort and privacy. The unique and customizable cabin design features flat floors, additional headroom, and several seating arrangements. Passengers will enjoy the improved HD entertainment systems and enhanced productivity technologies, allowing them to work or leisurely pass the time. The Nextant 400XTi also has a Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite found in newer private jet cockpits.
The interior of the Nextant 400XT/XTi can comfortably fit 8 passengers with several different cabin configurations including club and divan seating options. The cabin is over 15 feet long, 4′ 9″ tall and 4′ 11″ wide. The interior also has a full-service galley and increased space in the lavatory. The Nextant 400XT/XTi has ample baggagespace providing a total of 56 cubic feet of internal and external storage.
The Nextant 400XT/XTis are favorites amongst private fliers. The Nextant 400XT/XTis are popular because they offer all the perks of a new jet as far as range (2305 statute miles), speed (466 mph average) and cabin comforts (362 ft³ cabin volume) – all at an unmatched value.

The Cessna Citation Encore is a very popular light jet, introduced as an upgrade to the beloved Citation Ultra. The Encore is known for its superior cabin comforts, lower operating costs and longer range than competing lights jets. Upgraded with Pratt & Whitney Canada PW535A engines, the Encore has an impressive range of 1600 statute miles.

The cabin amenities can also include XM satellite radio, Airshow entertainment system, DVD Player, individual flat panel entertainment systems, Bose noise-cancelling headphones, a satellite phone, a refreshment center and fully-enclosed lavatory.
As far as performance goes, the Citation Encore is equipped for faster climbs to altitude, resulting in a more comfortable ride. This jet flies at 495 mph at its maximum certified flight level of 45,000 feet, carrying up to 7 passengers comfortably. To make the cabin feel larger, the Encore is set up in a center-club configuration with seamless wall panels, fully reclinable seats, indirect lights, and mirrors. For all of these reasons, the Encore is very popular for both business and personal jet charter.
The Embraer Legacy 600 is a highly regarded heavy jet known for its superior cabin amenities and overall performance. The Legacy 600 has a class-leading, three-zone cabin configuration, a visibly larger lavatory and plenty of baggage space for all passengers.
According to Embraer, “the aircraft was developed to cost effectively meet the air travel needs of corporations, successful entrepreneurs and heads of state. Designed using the highly successful ERJ 135 platform, the Legacy 600 combines cabin comfort, performance and operating efficiency.”
The Legacy 600 is fully equipped for business, but also designed with passenger comforts in mind. The three-zone cabin allows for work and relaxation to take place simultaneously without interfering with one another. The cabin measures at 6′ in height, 6′ 10″ in width and 49′ 9″ in length. Some of the technological amenities include: WiFi, power outlets, a multi-line phone system, two 17-inch flat screen TV monitors, DVD player, LED lighting, a Honeywell Ovation Select™ cabin management system, and a conference table area. The galley of the Legacy 600 is also quite impressive and often includes: a convection and microwave oven, a cutting board, electrical outlets, wine chiller, and refrigerator. With the largest, most spacious cabin, lavatory and baggage space (286 cubic feet) of most heavy jets, the Legacy 600 offers something for everyone.
As far as performance goes, the Legacy 600 does not disappoint. This jet has two Rolls Royce AE3007A1E high-bypass, turbofan, dual FADEC engines, allowing it a range of 3740 statue miles and a cruise speed of 528 mph, carrying up to 14 passengers. The engines are both fuel-efficient and quiet, the best of both worlds. Some of the seats on this aircraft also lay flat for a pleasant sleeping experience, while 22 large windows provide a more spacious feel.
It is not just passengers who enjoy flying in the Legacy 600. Keeping with the theme of spaciousness, pilots love the large cockpit and Honeywell Primus 1000 avionics suite with the latest advancements in aviation technology. For a jet of its size, the Legacy 600 is also remarkably inexpensive to operate and compares in costs to smaller jets. Embraer commends the Legacy 600 for its “outstanding operational flexibility in: busy air spaces, terrain-challenged airports and poor weather conditions.”
All in all, Embraer has demonstrated a clear understanding of the needs of business travelers and has exceeded expectations in performance, cabin luxuries and pilot operations.

1. Arrive early. With no security lines and no crowds, there is no excuse for being late. Time is money and the host can incur additional costs for delays.
2. Have your ID ready. Be sure to bring the proper IDand travel documents with you and have them readily accessible.
3. Pack light. With weight restrictions on private planes, less baggage is ideal. If you don’t know what’s appropriate in terms of how many bags you may bring, ASK.
4. Do your homework. The private terminal is called an FBO, “fixed base operation.” There is a pilot and co-pilot who fly in the flight deck, while the passengers fly in the cabin. As on a boat, the lavatory is the bathroom and galley is the kitchen. Some flights will have additional crew including flight attendants.
5. Where do I sit? It is customary to let the host choose their seat first and assign the remaining seats. If you’re not sure where the host wants you to sit, politely ask “Where would you like me to sit?”
6. Pets. Don’t ever assume you can bring your pet unless you have permission from the host in advance.
7. In flight entertainment. When there is a lull in the conversation, make sure you have something to keep yourself occupied like a book or a tablet. If you’re traveling with children, make sure to bring quiet toys to keep them busy during your trip.
8. A tip on tipping…Don’t. This is not your responsibility and would be left to the host or person in charge of booking the trip.
9. Respect the amenities. This should go without saying, but keep plane lavatories clean and realize that you will have to sacrifice some privacy because of tight accommodations.
10. Sharing is caring. Make sure to bring a personal gift for the host, something that shows that you put thought and planning into it. If traveling with other guests, it is polite to bring something for everyone to enjoy. A box of chocolates, fruit basket or cheese plate are just a few examples.

In 2004, Raytheon (the maker of the midsize Hawker series)
renamed their popular light jet the Beechjet 400A, the Hawker 400XP. The move was designed to create brand identity among the light and midsize jets that Raytheon produced.
In addition to the name, Raytheon also imported cabin comforts of the midsize Hawker including: additional shoulder and head room, a refined interior design, as well as a flat floor, making it the most
spacious cabin in its class. The baggage space, airspeed and range of the Hawker 400XP rate at the top of the light jet fleet.
