Nextant Aerospace announced at the show that it has secured US certification for the G90XT twin-engined turboprop, and will begin deliveries of the remanufactured Beechcraft King Air C90 next year.

The programme was launched by Nextant two years ago in partnership with engine manufacturer GE Aviation, with the G90XT having made its first flight in January 2015. The upgraded aircraft features GE H75-100 turboprops, a Regent flightdeck, based on the Garmin G1000 avionics suite, and a redesigned interior and cockpit.

“When we launched the G90XT our goal was to deliver an entry-level, twin-engine turboprop that offered the best combination of overall value, performance, and cabin comfort in the category,” says Jay Heublein, executive vice president of the Cleveland, Ohio-based company. ”We specifically focused on creating the safest single-pilot operating platform in the industry, and the G90XT has exceeded our expectations.”

The new product will join Nextant’s 400XTi light business jet – a remanufactured Hawker 400/Beechjet 400A. The seven-seat type entered service in 2013 and more than 60 have been delivered to date.

Nextant is also exploring new platforms in the super-midsize, large-cabin and long-range sectors. These include the Dassault Falcon 50/2000/900 families and the Bombardier Challenger 600 series, all of which have extensive global inventories.
