Nextant Aerospace, the pioneer and global leader in remanufactured business jets, unveiled its latest model, the Nextant 400XTi. The 400XTi will continue to retail at $4.95 million. It takes the company’s passion for innovation and value to new heights, setting the standard for best-in-class performance, comfort, and efficiency. Building on the proven capabilities of its predecessors, the 400XTi offers a near-transcontinental range (2,003nm / 3,710 km) with a bigger, quieter cabin (down 9dB, the quietest in its class). In addition, the new auto-throttle saves fuel and reduces pilot workload.

Hi-tech acoustic insulation package for dramatically-reduced cabin noise (down 9dB)

Signed at EBACE, the contract will see Jet Aviation Geneva provide maintenance services for Nextant’s growing fleet of aircraft across the continent. Last month, the companies signed a similar agreement adding Jet Aviation Singapore to Nextant’s global network of owned and authorized service centers.
“Launching the 400XTi is a proud moment for us, and we’re very excited by the huge improvements it offers our customers,” says Sean McGeough, President of Nextant Aerospace. “Everything about this new airplane reflects our determination to give the best flying experience to owners, pilots , and passengers. And at half the price of comparable products with low running costs to match, it’s going to make CFOs happy too.”
Kenneth C. Ricci, Principal of Directional Aviation Capital and CEO of Nextant, is equally enthusiastic. “The 400XTi changes everything in the light jet market. Just look at the figures. Its combination of performance and economy would make it a strong choice in any evaluation. Add a purchase price that’s about 50% less than the competition, and the verdict is clear: the 400XTi is the hands-down winner.”
Already famous for its unique-in-class flat-floor design and “squared oval” cross-section, the cabin now has a revolutionary composite shell interior that adds an extra 3 inches (8 cm) of space at shoulder level and an additional 2.5 inches (7 cm) headroom. It’s also the quietest cabin in this class , with a new acoustic insulation package that lowers ambient noise by 9dB. A variety of seating configurations is offered, the most popular being the three-place divan + four-place club seat with best-in-class legroom between the club seats. Even the lavatory has been improved with an additional four inches (10 cm) of privacy. The 400XTi is an elegant statement of comfort and productivity with available state-of-the-art cabin management and communications systems.
New raked winglets might look like a style statement with distinctive LED lights, but they contribute to improved performance by reducing drag. Lower fuel costs and more precise engine management are achieved by using auto-throttle , which also improves efficiency and reduces workload in the cockpit.
