Nextant 400XT background information

Let’s take a brief look at the The Nextant 400XT. The jet itself is produced by Nextant Aerospace a company specializing in remanufacturing business jets, with the 400XT being its pilot product. Each 400XT starts its journey as a Beechjet 400A more commonly known as a Hawker 400XP. The jets then undergo a rigorous modernization process, with each jet taking over 6,000 man-hours to complete. By the end of the process the Nextant 400XT becomes an almost whole new business jet ready to take to the sky. The overhaul increases the jet’s range by 50%, cuts its climb time by a third and reduces its operating costs by 29%.
