Nextant Aerospace recently announced that it had received the final piece of FAA certification that combines the new single-lever power control system with the previously certified engine and avionics combination on the G90XT turboprop aircraft.
The G90XT features the GE H75 engine along with a fully integrated Garmin G1000 flight deck. In addition to the new power control system, other key technology “firsts” for this airframe include: a cockpit that integrates both engine and fuel monitoring on a digital basis into the MFD, an all-new digital pressurization system, new environmental cooling system that triples the previous cooling capacity of the plane, and an all-new interior that features a new composite shell and incorporates new seats along with an improved cabin layout. In addition to the new technology, the aircraft demonstrates a 20-knot speed advantage at altitude when compared to current production, competitive aircraft.
With FAA certification now complete, Nextant expects that EASA validation will occur within 90 to 120 days. Nextant also announced that it will begin a national demonstration tour featuring the aircraft.
