Nextant Aerospace’s new G90XT turboprop aircraft has successfully completed its first test flight. The G90XT is a remanufactured King Air C90A that features the new H75 engine by GE. This is the second of Nextant’s remanufactured business jets — the first is the Nextant 400XTi.

The G90XT aircraft has several technological enhancements, including a fully integrated Garmin G1000 cockpit, electronic engine control with complete exceedance protection, single lever power control technology, digital pressurization and dual-zone air-conditioning.

Nextant expects the flight test program to last approximately 6 weeks and anticipates certification for the aircraft in the second quarter of this year. Once certified, Nextant will begin delivery of production aircraft immediately.
