FrontRunners: Next Better

  • Nextant G90XT
<< Back to Robb Report, March 2014

A remanufactured Beechcraft King Air C90 twin turboprop, the Nextant G90XT (www.nextantaerospace.com) features General Electric’s new H80 turboprop engines. They are more powerful and efficient than the King Air’s original engines, and they require less frequent maintenance. Nextant updates the cockpit with Garmin’s new three-screen, all-glass G1000 avionics suite and outfits the cabin, which seats five to 11 passengers, with new materials and the latest cabin technology. The Nextant G90XT has a starting price of $2.2 million, compared to $3.9 million for a new C90GTx, Beechcraft’s latest King Air C90 variant.
