Jay Heublein, Nextant executive vice president for Sales and Marketing says: “We are very pleased to see the exceptional sales demand from the US and Latin America.
The advanced GE engines deliver great power, range and speed with a low fuel burn. That kind of performance, combined with their low maintenance requirements, makes a very compelling argument for anyone considering their first turboprop purchase or replacing their existing equipment.”

“We are seeing many King Air C90 owners take advantage of these improved capabilities and convert their existing aircraft. We have mated the new GE H75-100 engines with the airframe and look forward to the first flight next month. We are on track for initial customer deliveries towards the end of the first quarter of 2015,” adds Heublein.

The Nextant G90XT is fitted with two General Electric H75-100 engines and an integrated electronic engine control system. The aircraft is also fitted with an enhanced Garmin G1000 integrated flight deck.
