Interceptor Corporation (established November 18,1968) acquired all rights and tooling of the Myers 200C from Aero Commander Inc. A modification of this design, called the Interceptor 400, was tested by the Interceptor Corp.
The prototype Interceptor 400 first flew June 27,1969, a turbine-engined development of the Myers 200C built as the Model 200D, equipped with an AiResearch turboprop powerplant flat-rated at 400 shp. Cruising speeds in excess of 280 mph were reported. The prototype was sold and subsequently repurchased by Interceptor Company, which acquired Type Certificate at end of 1974. The Interceptor 400 was an advanced four-seat cabin monoplane with a pressurized cabin, powered by a 665 shp Garrett-AirResearch turboprop engine.
Prop-Jets Inc was founded to continue development of Interceptor 400 turboprop- powered four-seat light aircraft, as 400A.
Engine: Garrett-AirResearch turboprop, 665 shp
