Nextant Aerospace is looking to expand its remanufacturing activities into a new market segment, CEO Sean McGeough announced at EBACE in Geneva on Monday. While he would not reveal specific details, he confirmed that the company is focusing on "just one aircraft type" in the super-midsize to large category. Further details may be revealed at November's NBAA Convention in Las Vegas.
Meanwhile, its 400XTi – the world's only remanufactured business jet, which is appearing here in the Static Display – is enjoying worldwide success, with the 60 aircraft that have been delivered to 11 countries logging a total fleet time of 50,000 hr. in three years of operation.
The aircraft is "doing exceptionally well in European countries" McGeough says, with eight now operating in the region. Czech Republic charter operator Time Air will take delivery of its third aircraft shortly after EBACE. That company's managing director, Martin Pražský, says, "Our extensive experience with the 400XTi has proved that it really is the ideal choice for our European operations. We've worked our aircraft hard, but our service experience has been exceptionally good." A U.K. service center will be named later this week.
