Nextant gains CAAC approval for 400XTi
Nextant Aerospace’s 400XTi has received supplemental type certificate validation from the Civil Aviation Administration of China. The 400XTi is the world’s only remanufactured business jet.
Earlier this year, AVIC ADE was appointed as Nextant’s exclusive sales representative for the Greater China region including Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. AVIC ADE secured an order for the first 400XTi within six months following the appointment. The first 400XTi will be delivered to China in the first quarter of 2015.
“The rapid acceptance by both Chinese customers and regulators speaks to the global appeal of Nextant remanufacturing,” said Nextant President and CEO Sean McGeough. “The ability to quickly design, build and certify an aircraft that delivers like-new performance for half the cost allows Chinese customers to leverage the business benefits of the latest business jet technology and a 3,700 km (2,000 nm) range in a fiscally prudent manner.”
Nextant is also developing the G90XT turboprop.
