Frequently Asked Questions

Why was Chapter 4 removed from the Maintenance Manual?
The decision to remove Chapter 4 from the Maintenance Manual (MM) and issue a stand-alone Airworthiness Limitations Manual (ALM) was made for the following reasons:
We were experiencing delays in being able to issue a MM revision because any Chapter 4 content of a revision had to be approved and signed by the FAA. Removing Chapter 4 data from the MM has speeded the revision issuing process. Furthermore, owners/operators did not always have a copy (current or otherwise) of the MM, so did not have the required airworthiness limitations data. A stand-alone ALM allows the end user to have the required limitations data without necessarily having an MM. The ALM is distributed to all owners/operators of record free of charge.

How do I get removed from your mailing list?
If you are receiving mailings with … FAA … on the first line of the label, these are distributions from the FAA Owner of Record mailing list. To discontinue these mailings you must contact the FAA in Oklahoma City to remove your airplane from the list. For more information visit the FAA web site at Hawker Beechcraft Corp. cannot remove names from this list.

For those mailings with … SOFI … or neither "FAA" or "SOFI" on the first line, contact TMDC at 1-800-796-2665 or 316-676-8238 to discontinue the mailings.

How are my customs fees calculated?
Customs fee values are based on the purchase price of the order per Dept. of Commerce regulations and fees are determined by individual destination country. The information shipped is considered technical data and cannot be shipped as "books".

Why can't I find a Service Manual?
Try looking for either a Maintenance Manual or a Shop Manual.

Where's my Maintenance Manual?
Try to look under Shop Manuals for your aircraft. It's the same as a Maintenance Manual but sometimes contains the wiring information.

Where's my Wiring Diagram Manual?
Check to see if your serial number is listed under a Shop Manual. Generally, if there is not a Wiring Diagram Manual for your serial number, you can find that information in the Shop Manual.

Where's my Flight Manual?
Many Flight Manuals are incorporated into other types of pilot's books, such as a Pilot's Operating Handbook or a Pilot's Operating Manual. It may have its own part number but is not available separately. This is not always the case; at times there is both a Pilot's Operating Manual and Flight Manual for an aircraft. Try searching for a POM or POH. Other airplane handbooks might be listed as 'FlightHandbook'.

Why can't I find my part number?
Try entering your part number but leave off the last alpha character of the part number, leaving just the base part number. Or try searching by the model of aircraft and the type of manual or click 'Complete' instead of 'Current'. If you still can't find it, call us; it may have been discontinued.

Why can't I find the revision(s) I've missed?
We only keep revisions for one revision back or until stock is depleted. If you miss this window you will need to purchase a new manual. (Therefore, we encourage the purchase of a subscription service.)

Why can't I find my Pilots Operating Manual or Handbook?
Try looking for an Owners Manual, this is all the same information but with different names.

How can I tell if my book is current?
On the Publications tab select 'Current' and enter your base part number, this references the latest revision to your manual. If you do not have the most current revision go back to the Publications tab and select 'Complete' to find a complete list of the revision still available for purchase. If you've missed revisions that are not listed on this screen, you'll need to purchase a new manual.

How do I check to see if my revision date is the latest?
For many years the factory did not keep a record of revisions by date but rather by revision number. Revisions are published in number order (1, 2, 3, etc.); for older publications this may be the only way to tell if you have the most current revision. Check 'Current=' on the Publications tab and enter your part number to see.

How do I know if my manual has been reissued?
Beech manuals - When a book has been reissued the base part number will end with 'B' and revision numbers will continue on 1, 2, 3 etc. until another reissue and then it becomes a 'C'. Hawker manuals - Revision numbers are used whether the manual has been revised or reissued. Look for "Reissue" in the description.

How do I get vendor manuals?
Hawker Beechcraft Corp. does not furnish vendor manuals except for what is contained in the Component Maintenance Manuals. You can call our Technical Support team for questions at 1-800-429-5372 or 316-676-3140.

How do I search for CD's only?
Search by Part Number for "CD" or "IML" for maintenance libraries. Maintenance Library CD's contain multiple books. Those part numbers that start with 'CD' are generally single book PDF page-turner CD's.

My airplane manual binder is worn. How do I replace it?
Locate the part number of your binder (not the manual) on the inside cover. On the Search screen, search by the binder part number or select Manual Type as "Binders". You can also select the "Binders" tab on the left side of the screen to see a list of binders and their associated manuals.

How do I get Airworthiness Directives?
Airworthiness Directives are mailed by the FAA; go to for information on how to acquire ADs or see Important Phone numbers on the Contact Us page.

How do I get an MMEL?
Go to the FAA web site at for a Minimum Equipment List (MEL / MMEL). The MEL (Maintenance & Operational Procedures) is available on the Electronic Maintenance Libraries for the Hawker 1 through 850XP series and Hawker 4000.

How to I obtain other aircraft data?
