The Premier I light business jet was the first all new business jet built by Beechcraft from an original design and is the first in a family of business jets, which feature an all-composite fuselage and swept aluminum wing design. Beechcraft started the design of the Premier I in 1994, completed its first flight in 1998 and received FAA certification in 1999. The aircraft has two Williams FJ44-2A turbofan engines delivering 2300 lbs. of thrust each.
Avionics & Maintenance
The Premier 1 Model 390 is fitted with a Rockwell Collins Proline 21 fully integrated avionics system. It includes an Integrated Avionics Processor System (IAPS), which is designed to interconnect and manage the aircraft’s various avionics sub-systems. There are eight sub-systems:
Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS)
Engine Indicating System (EIS)
Air Data System (ADS)
Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS)
Flight Guidance System (FGS)
Flight Management System (FMS)
Radio Sensor System (RSS)
Weather Radar System (WXR)
The IAPS also contains a Maintenance Diagnostic Computer (MDC) module, which monitors the sub-systems and stores diagnostic data in non-volatile memory.
The EFIS consists of three large colour displays, two Primary Flight Displays (PFD1 and PFD2) and a Multifunction Display (MFD), and two display control panels, one for each pilot’s display. The PFDs show attitude, navigation/compass, flight control, air data (altitude, airspeed and vertical speed), and TCAS advisory functions.
