SINGAPORE, 24 Aug. 2012. Asia Pacific Jets has placed an order for 10 Nextant Aerospace 400XT aircraft, which is being called the only FAA-certified remanufactured business jet.

Ten Nextant 400XT aircraft will be delivered over a period of three years. A portion of the jets will be outfitted as 400XT air ambulances, whereas others will gain the normal 400XT business jet configuration.

Asia Pacific Jets will serve as a sales agent in Asia for the 400XT. The company also has partnered with Hong Kong-based AirMed Asia, a subsidiary of AirMed International.

The first two of the 10-aircraft order will be delivered by the end of 2012--a timeframe that aligns with the opening of a new Singapore base being launched by Asia Pacific Jets and AirMed Asia later this year.

Kenneth C. Ricci, chief executive officer of Nextant Aerospace, is pleased to see the Nextant 400XT “aircraft begin service on the Asian continent. With more than 15 400XT aircraft now in operation across the globe, feedback from operators has been outstanding. We are elated that the aircraft is performing so well for its owners, and look forward to introducing this groundbreaking aircraft to additional markets around the world.”

“We know based on our extensive experience flying the Beechjet 400A/XP as an air ambulance that the aircraft provides great versatility for air medical services. The Nextant 400XT will offer AirMed Asia and our partners at Asia Pacific Jets everything we like about the Beechjet, and everything one would expect from a brand-new light jet, but at a fraction of the cost,” says Jeffrey Tolbert, the chief executive officer of AirMed International. “This includes range that will enable nonstop flights from our Singapore base as far west as Mumbai, India, and as far north as Shanghai, China, along with the absolute lowest operating cost basis in its class.”

The Nextant 400XT features a remanufactured Beechjet 400A/XP airframe enhanced with state-of-the-art technology, including the Williams FJ44-3AP turbofan engine, the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 integrated avionics suite, new interiors, and advanced electronics, including high-speed wireless Internet service. The resulting aircraft has a 2,005 nautical mile (3,713 km) range and cruising speed of 460 nautical miles per hour (740 km per hour).
