Nextant makes AutoPower available to 604XT owners
Nextant says that Safe Flight's AutoPower delivers performance advantages resulting in increased situational awareness, reduced crew workload, extended range and payload potential and greater passenger comfort.

Nextant Aerospace, remanufacturer and builder of the 400XTi, G90XT and 604XT, is ramping up production of its Safe Flight AutoPower system kits to fulfil the demand for this option on the 604XT Pro Line Fusion flight deck upgrade package. The system offers 604XT operators automatic speed control from takeoff to touchdown, providing smoother speed changes during transitions. Other features included AOA and N1 flight envelope speed limit protection, engine synchronisation, real-time power limits and IAS/MACH/N1 speed management, making it a highly sought-after cockpit enhancement.

AutoPower delivers flight performance advantages resulting in increased situational awareness, reduced crew workload, extended range/payload potential and greater passenger comfort. “The AutoPower upgrade option on the 604XT has been really well received in the market,” says executive VP Mark O'Donnell. “Already this year, almost half of the aircraft delivered in Q1 have included the Safe Flight AutoPower upgrade with more booked well into second quarter and beyond.”

Nextant's 604XT Fusion flight deck complies with upcoming 2020 mandates and provides enhanced capabilities and safety. “We are very pleased with the market's positive response to our AutoPower system as part of the 604XT programme,” notes Ken Bannon, Safe Flight director of corporate and commercial sales. “Pilots and passengers of the 604XT will enjoy how accurately and smoothly the system manages the aircraft's speed through all flight conditions.”

The Nextant 604XT Safe Flight AutoPower option is offered exclusively through Constant Aviation.
