Nextant Aerospace's 400XT remanufactured business jet is making its debut in the Dubai static park, showcasing an optional interior configuration containing a 1.5m divan with four-place club seating that offers an additional 30cm of leg room compared with the standard design.
The aircraft, which received US Federal Aviation Administration certification this year after a three-year development and flight testing programmme, has a range of 2,000nm (3,700km) with four passengers, enabling flights originating in the Middle East to reach major destinations in Europe, Russia and Asia. Customer deliveries began last month.
Nextant also recently announced its first international service centre at Beechcraft Augsburg in Germany, accessible from many Middle Eastern departure points. The new facility brings to 10 the number of 400XT service centres.
The 400XT process employs a remanufactured Beechjet 400A/XP airframe, enhanced with new Williams FJ44-3AP turbofan engines and Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 integrated avionics.
