From a 125,000-square-foot facility at the county airport in Cleveland, Ohio, Nextant Aerospace is taking remanufacturing to new heights.
The business jet remanufacturer converts aging Beechjet 400A planes – most planes already have 4,000 to 7,000 hours in service when Nextant receives them – into like-new low cost business jets. It strips the planes down to the shell and replaces 90% of the wires in the aircraft.
Since late 2011, the company has delivered 26 aircraft to customers in six countries and, at the start of 2013, had a sales backlog of more than $175 million.
