RICHMOND HEIGHTS, OHIO – Nextant Aerospace announces they have secured an order for 40 400XT aircraft from Flight Options. These aircraft will be delivered over the next 5 years and includes Nextant’s comprehensive Power by the Hour Engine and Tip to Tail Aircraft Maintenance warranty.
“We are excited to announce our first large fleet purchase of the 400XT aircraft that is valued at over 150 Million USD over the next five years. The delivery schedule includes 8 confirmed aircraft to be delivered throughout 2011 which books all production slots for the year. While our certification is progressing on schedule, we are continued to be impressed with how the aircraft is performing. We see the 400XT as being a perfect fit in both the fractional and card program market.” said James Miller, President of Nextant Aerospace.

The 400XT is equipped with a Pro Line 21 upgrade that seamlessly manages the Williams FJ44-3AP Full Authority Digital Engine control (FADEC) and enables future NEXTGEN avionics equipage requirements.
