Watch out for your cornhole.

You canít lift a wing with a spoiler.

Also, theyíve had a propensity to have engines flame out at altitude.

Otherwise - 400As are largely 15-20 year old light jets with no better than average runway, climb, and altitude performance.

Easy jet to fly, not as forgiving as a 500/525 series Citation but it doesnít tend to bite either.

Think the flameouts were due to getting fuel without the additive(prist) and the fuel feezing at the filter

Personally thatís the only jet Iíve flown that I never truly felt comfortable in. Like others stated - easy to fly, marginal performance, with little engines known to flame out in the clouds at altitude.

Glad to have that experience behind me.

The yaw damper. On = truck. Off = whole new ballgame.

Compared to what? What is the mission? Are you buying or just looking at it from a pilotís stand point?

Looking from a pilot standpoint
From a pilot stand point my opinion is, the airplane is a good older airframe that flys well and if the job gets you what you want/need pay/time I wouldnít turn it down bases on the type. The BE-400 has been a very popular charter/corporate airframe for years.
