In the works: Daher-Socata – NTx

 - June 3, 2009, 6:30 AM

Sometime in the next year or so, Daher-Socata is expected to announce the formal launch of a new eight- to 10-seat twin-engine turboprop or jet. Although the company mentioned the NTx at last year’s NBAA Convention, Daher-Socata has not chosen the powerplant or revealed any more details. The final choice on the NTx engine will depend
on who Daher-Socata selects as the aircraft’s main financial and/or industrial partner. President and CEO Patrick Daher said that powerplant choices are still under discussion even though the company has started marketing efforts for the new aircraft.
