Nextant 400XTi Named Barron's "Best Light Jet"

  • The aircraft is included in the Finest Five private jets listing published this week
  • The 400XTi is praised for its cabin comfort, operating economics and superior performance
  • The remanufacturer is recognized among the most respected OEMs in the industry

CLEVELAND, OHIO, October 1, 2014 – Nextant Aerospace (“Nextant”), maker of the Nextant 400XTi – the world’s only remanufactured business jet – and the forthcoming Nextant G90XT turboprop, announced today that the Nextant 400XTi has been included in Barron’s Finest Five listing of the best light jets on the market.

The prestigious rating highlights the aircraft’s superior speed, cabin comfort and operating economics. The expert behind the selection says that with these characteristics “the 400XTi kills everything else in its category” and that it has “standard features normally found only on larger aircraft”. Barron’s article summarizes the remanufacturing process, which results in “an aircraft that offers stellar performance and reliability” for “half the price of most new offerings by rivals”. The quietest-in-class 400XTi cabin, with a flat-floor design, a variety of seating options, an enlarged lavatory, and the latest electronics, is highlighted as the aircraft’s “main strength”.

The Nextant 400XTi is the winner in the light jet category with Gulfstream, Dassault Falcon, Cessna and Embraer being featured in other categories. “We’re proud to be in such great company of OEMs and this is a major endorsement for Nextant Aerospace and the 400XTi”, said Nextant President and CEO Sean McGeough. “Based on independent appraisal, this is further evidence of the value delivered from our pioneering remanufacturing process.”
