Pair of Nextants are a first for visionary Time Air
With its acquisition of a second Nextant 400XT, Czech charter operator Time Air has become the first European Nextant fleet operator.

With its acquisition of a second Nextant 400XT, Czech charter operator Time Air has become the first European Nextant fleet operator.

Martin Pražský, md, says: “The aircraft has been an incredibly popular addition to our charter service offering due to its low operating cost and outstanding dispatch reliability. We have flown 600 hours in the first nine months, and demand increases month over month.

“We had very high expectations and the aircraft has met them. It is the perfect jet for the charter market. In addition, customer support has been superb.”

With its range of 2,003 nm, Nextant Aerospace believes the 400XTi is ideally suited to the European market, where it has made a strong sales debut. “It is about half the price of its competitors, with significantly lower maintenance and operating costs,” says the company. Its full factory warranty is backed by a worldwide network of owned and authorised service centres and the world's largest inventory of Beechjet 400 rotable parts. Now fully EASA-certified, demand for the low cost jet is expected to grow even further.

“This second order from Time Air is a great endorsement for the Nextant 400XTi and its appeal to the European charter market,” says Jay Heublein, Nextant's evp global sales and marketing. “Pražský had great vision early on of the potential for the 400XT. He made that vision a reality and proved the aircraft's value to the charter market.”

The Nextant 400XTi model is a completely-rebuilt Beechjet 400A/XP with Williams FJ44-3AP engines and the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 integrated avionics suite.
