Textron's Beechjet 400XPR

Submitted
The Hawker winglets are actually benifitual. The Garmin G5000 saves weight. The Williams engines are designed for aircraft and produce more thrust. Winglets $275,000 Garmin G5000 $450,000 Williams Engines $2,300,000 I'm hearing great things about this modification to the Beechjet airframe. (xpr1ststep.com) More...

As opposed to what?

The Williams engines in the Nextant Beechjet, as I understand, were originally designed for missiles and then adjusted to work on the Nextant. Nothing wrong with that.

Interesting info -- thanks. I would think the missile engines weren't designed with long MTBF and overhauls in mind.

Yeah, I think they are a stage two or three version of the original. I think very safe. The XPR has a bit more thrust as well.
The original Pratt engines produce 2,965 lbs of thrust at SL and standard ISA. The XPR engines are 3,700 lbs de rated to 3,200 + lbs of thrust in the same conditions.
