Nextant 400XTi: Ready to get to know this superb jet?


The skies are travelled by a new protagonist of the light-jet variety, a true leader in terms of performance, comfort, and innovation.


To start with, the Nextant 400XTi is a magnificent aircraft, among the fastest private jets, able to take you to your destination in a flash; with an operational radius that sets new boundaries, even across the ocean.


The manufacturer Nextant Aerospace has given its best to this aircraft, combining seamless comfort and aeronautical technology, bundled to satisfy customers of the business world.


It offers communication and data systems designed to ensure maximum productivity at all times.


Not only this: the jet has an ergonomically designed cabin that optimizes space and efficiency, with very low noise levels.


Nextant Aerospace: the company behind the 400 XTi


The cradle of the Nextant 400XTi has its headquarters in the United States, and its specialty is in the remanufacturing of business jets.


Established in 2007, Nextant Aerospace was the very first company to use the term “regeneration” in the commercial aircraft sector, in particular, for aircraft destined primarily for business travel, as often, private jets are.


What did that mean?


In practice, Nextant Aerospace, led by the CEO Kenneth C. Ricci, is a company that deals in the modernization of airplanes derived from previous models.


The Nextant 400XT was their reconstructed business jet; it is "reborn" from the Beechjet 400A / XP (and obtained certification from the FAA in October 2011).


The jet immediately met with great success, as it was launched on the market at a base price of approximately half the cost of a new aircraft in the same category.


Since its debut in the skies, the Nextant 400XT (and now the 400XTi, its most recent and advanced version), has earned the company hundreds of millions of dollars ...


So much so that the company can, to this day, boast an order portfolio with nothing to envy even the best-known producers.


To meet market demands, a new 11,600 m2 plant was recently built at "Cuyahoga County Airport" in Cleveland, Ohio.

The reconstruction of the Beech jet has led to the manufacturing of an essentially new airplane, but at the price of one within the same category, used.


In addition, the company offers its customers the same treatment that is generally reserved by other competing companies when buying a brand-new private aircraft.


Buyers are given the opportunity to choose all the finishes and fittings of the jet’s cabin according to their personal tastes.


The Nextant 400XTi also comes with a 2-year warranty, and the possibility to source from the technical support of a constantly developing network.


Let's take a look at the engine


The Nextant 400XTi is a private jet entirely rebuilt from the Beechjet 400A, with the addition of significant improvements in terms of both aerodynamics, and latest generation engines.


Considering the comfort offered in the cabin, and the parameters of autonomy in flight, the Nextant 400XTi can easily compete with aircraft of the same caliber, such as the Phenom 300 or Citation CJ4, this, at much lower operating costs.


That said, were talking about the engine: the Nextant 400XTi is powered by 2 Williams International FJ44-3AP engines, and equipped with additional innovative avionics, Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21.


The extraordinary range of the 400XTi is largely due to its revolutionary engine, the FJ44-3AP, which is much lighter and more efficient than its predecessors (up to 32%).


Full Authority digital engine control (FADEC) eliminates the need for a thrust reverser. This further reduces weight and maintenance costs, and at the same time makes the aircraft more reliable.


With the integration of the new auto-throttle system, the jet fuel consumption is considerably reduced, as is the pilot's workload, especially in critical flight phases.


In addition to increasing the capacity and reducing fuel consumption, the FJ44-3AP engine has maintenance costs 27% lower than the average (the designated time of service extends up to after 5,000 hours of aircraft operation).


Even the engine is noticeably quieter, allowing the Nextant 400XTi to obtain the certification confirming compliance with the laws on noise restrictions equal to category IV.


Terrific aerodynamics


In regards to aerodynamics, some modifications have been made and the configuration of the engines has been completely revised with the introduction of new support pylons and gondolas.


We enter the command suite


The Nextant 400XTi is equipped with a Collins Aerospace Pro Line 21 avionics system, a cutting-edge technology for aircraft.


Installed in over 4,600 corporate aircraft, Pro Line 21 is a highly proven system that combines functionality and value perfectly.


In the central part of the command suite you will find:


  • 4 configurable displays of ultra-large format with LED backlighting;
  • IFIS electronic charts with advanced maps;
  • Dual CDU-6200 (with integrated radio tuning);
  • Dual AHRS 3000S;
  • GPS 4000S; ADS-B Out, version 2 (DO-260B);
  • WAAS / LPV;
  • TAWS-A.


The company also offers added options:


  • Synthetic vision (incentive prices available);
  • equipment of a second IFIS and GPS;
  • XM Weather (Universal also available);
  • Weather radar with turbulence detection.

The excellent flight performance of the Nextant 400XTi, is able to offer an almost transcontinental range (2.003 NM / 3.710 km), a more spacious cabin with 6/8 seats, and one of the quietest noise levels in its category (compared to the previous model, it was reduced by 9dB).


It has a very high-end cabin, even if it's not new.


This jet was already famous for the linearity of its floor and for the 'square oval' compartment of its cabin.


Now, the interiors have been revamped with composite materials, thanks to which 7 cm of space at head level were gained, as well as another 8 cm of space at shoulder height.


The aircraft also allows a wide range of interior seat configurations.


The most common is the arrangement with a 3-seater sofa and 4 armchairs, able to offer you much more room for your legs than other private jets.


More space also includes the onboard toilet, revisited with an additional 10 cm of privacy.


Everything you need for your business? Find it on the Nextant 400XTi.


Maximum comfort is also guaranteed by:


  • innovative communication and cabin management systems,
  • sophisticated LED lights,
  • multimedia devices for entertainment,
  • Internet connection,
  • satellite phone,
  • new wing tips with a different inclination (which at first glance could give the impression of being just a decorative element, but which actually serve to increase performance by decreasing resistance).


Furthermore, the Nextant 400XTi offers a pantry space with an area intended for double-basin containers, two ice compartments, a waste container, and plenty of space for wines and soft drinks.


How much does it cost to charter a private jet?


Booking a private jet can have a cost per person starting from a few hundred, up to a few thousand euros, depending on the model of aircraft chosen, the duration of the journey, and other peculiarities.


Of course, highly luxurious planes tend to have a higher price, then, the size of the jet, the number of passengers on board, and the length of the journey are taken into account.


The charter price must also include fixed costs such as crew salaries, ie pilots and flight attendants, and, depending on the countries into which you fly, there are airport taxes.


The chartering of a private plane is certainly worthwhile if a group travels, the cost can then be divided among the passengers.


However, a good rule of thumb is to charter a private plane with a capacity equal to the number of passengers that will travel, in order to avoid unnecessary expenses, and to stay within the available budget.


On average, to give practical examples, the price of a private jet for domestic flights (for example from Milan to Rome) can be between 5,500 and 9,500 euros.


For an international flight in Europe (for example from Rome to London) prices can range from 9,500 to 17,500 euros.


For an intercontinental flight (for example from Milan to New York) the price goes from 38.500 to 58.000 euros.


To conclude


As you will have understood and certainly already experienced in person, chartering a private jet is now a widespread service, used globally for business men, for business groups traveling, diplomats, and VIPs.


The type of clientele, in short, that needs tailored services often not offered or not available via airliners.


Until recently it was commonplace that making use private jets was a reality for the select few, today, thanks to companies like ours, it has become a "luxury" accessible to increasingly more people.
