Nextant Aerospace
of Richmond Heights, Ohio, has an approved STC essentially to remanufacture the Beechjet 400A/XP series. Completed aircraft will be marketed as the 400NEXT.

This endeavor is a serious ground-up modernization program. It starts with the airframe stripped to the hull. Nextant replaces all wiring. A complete suite of Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics is installed.

Nextant installs a complete custom interior with all of the amenities of a 21st century work and digital entertainment environment. Window treatments are the latest technology. Zero-time landing gear, fresh inspections, winglets and custom paint are completed.

Finally, existing engines are replaced with the new Stage 4 Williams International FJ44-3AP, offering superior:

  • Economy
  • Range
  • Speed
  • Cabin comfort

Nextant is offering all of this in a value package that will catch buyers’ eyes.

The aircraft caught our eye a few days ago. Aircraft Bluebook–Price Digest and AC-U-KWIK staff members had a chance to see the 400NEXT during a stop at MKC. Check out our video tour above and photo gallery.
