  • PlaneSense, Inc. 400XTi Fleet Offers Customers Added Travel Flexibility

CLEVELAND, OHIO – June 1, 2016 – Nextant Aerospace, which makes the 400XTi – the world’s only remanufactured business jet, announced today that PlaneSense, Inc. has taken delivery of their 3rd Nextant 400XTi aircraft.

“It has been just over a year since our companies announced the initial order and today we are pleased to take one more step forward with the delivery of the third 400XTi to PlaneSense, Inc.,” stated Jay Heublein, Executive Vice President for Nextant Aerospace. “The enhanced performance of the 400XTi opens up city pairs that were previously not possible with a light jet product. This added performance combined with the custom features of the PlaneSense 400XTi cabin, has proven to be a great combination.”

Now in its 21st year of operation, the PlaneSense® program is the third largest fractional program manager in the United States.

“The Nextant 400XTi gives us aircraft diversity so we can fit the right plane to the right mission,” said President and CEO of PlaneSense, Inc. George Antoniadis. ”The efficiency of a turboprop for shorter haul operations and short and unimproved fields, and the speed of the jet for longer trips, allows options for our clients to choose which aircraft best suits their trips.”

PlaneSense, Inc. placed an order for 5 Nextant 400XTi aircraft in March of 2015 and this delivery represents the third overall and second delivery in 2016.
