The Next Jet
Nextant Aerospace has introduced a major upgrade to the 400XT, a remanufactured jet based on the Hawker Beechjet 400A/XP airframe that Cleveland-based Nextant has been selling since 2011. The new remanufactured jet, the Nextant 400XTi(216.261.9000, www.nextantaerospace.com), is equipped with the same powerful Williams engines and Rockwell Collins Pro Line avionics as its predecessor, and the same updated engine nacelles and pylons that extend the aircraft’s range to about 2,300 miles.

The 400XTi features a new composite cabin shell that leaves additional headroom and shoulder room, making the most of the aircraft’s squared-oval cabin design. This shell also provides extra insulation for a quieter flight. In the cockpit, a new auto-throttle reduces pilot workload while saving fuel. The wings feature raked winglets that add to the jet’s efficiency.

Nextant will deliver the $4.95 million 400XTi as a new aircraft with all of its major components refurbished or replaced and a full two-year warranty. Fractional-share and membership provider Flight Options, which is owned by the same investment group that owns Nextant, plans to take delivery of as many as two dozen of the jets over the next three years.
