Design Your Own Nextant G90XT

g90xt-headerFrom its start in 2007, Nextant Aerospace has been the first and only company to capitalize on remanufacturing aircraft for the business jet market. For example, consider the Nextant 400XTi — a completely rebuilt Beechjet 400A/XP with a Williams FJ44-3AP engine and an integrated avionic suite from Rockwell Collins.

What Nextant did for the light jet market they are now about to do again for the turboprop market. The new Nextant G90XT was first introduced in late 2013 and reportedly will soon be available for purchase.

As with the company’s previous models, the G90XT will be completely refurbished and features a few surprises, including:

  • single-lever power control to reduce pilot workload and increase safety
  • integrated Garmin G1000 flight deck with fuel indicator
  • ultra low-maintenance GE H75 engines for reliable performance
  • completely digital pressurization

One of the most unique features of this model is the ergonomically designed cockpit and customizable cabin configurations. Purchasers can select a three- to five-seat executive configuration with “chairman’s workstations,” a mixed passenger-cargo option, and even a special mission/air ambulance configuration. The lavatory is also larger than most and includes a vanity sink. Baggage is stored at the rear of the aircraft.

Nextant’s test-flight program was reported as a success and a model was featured at EAA Airventure in Oshkosh, Wisconsin this summer. Some of the responses from test flights include a noticeable difference in power during takeoff and a general impression that cockpit noise levels are markedly reduced. The change in propeller position relative to the fuselage appears to be a successful combination for a quiet and comfortable flight for both pilots and passengers.

Once certified, Nextant will begin delivery of production aircraft immediately. The G90XT will sell for $2.6 million, which is approximately $1.2 million less than a new Beechcraft King Air C90GTx.

Nextant CEO Sean McGeough noted in recent interviews that the company listened carefully to what King Air operators had to say about what would make their experience better. He believes they are about to deliver a product that will include those improvements and have a significant impact on the business aviation market segment.
