Visitors to this year’s EAA AirVenture Oshkosh (to be held on July 20-26 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, USA) are being invited to provide feedback on the final cabin design of Nextant’s G90XT remanufactured twin turboprop. The aircraft will be on display at the event, having completed its test flight program.
“The G90XT program is on track to complete FAA certification this summer,” said Sean McGeough, president and CEO at Nextant. “We’ve proved that we have a unique ability to design aircraft that offer both cutting-edge technology and exceptional value propositions. In addition to creating great products, we’ve also established a collaborative infrastructure that extends from our employee base to all of our vendor partners, which allows us to certify aircraft efficiently and in comparatively short periods of time.”
The G90XT will be displayed at GE’s stand at the event. The aircraft features GE’s H75-100 engine.
“With the G90XT, we created the best-performing and best-equipped aircraft in its category,” said McGeough. “Much of the design specification for this aircraft was based on hours of interviews with existing operators. We’re now going to take this process one step further and seek feedback regarding the final cabin design and layout. We believe that historically, manufacturing companies have failed to listen to the people that matter most in the design process – the flight crews and passengers that use the aircraft day in and day out. Oshkosh is a unique environment that brings together thousands of people that are passionate about aviation, and we want to hear from them. We’re inviting everyone who is interested to stop by and see the plane first hand; while they are there, they can share with us their ideas for the ultimate cabin experience. Our team will be on hand to take suggestions.”
