Nextant Aerospace said last month that it ­completed R&D flight testing for the 400XT, a remanufactured Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400XP with Williams FJ44-3AP engines and Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics. The flight-test aircraft is undergoing final configuration changes and FAA conformity at Nextant’s Cleveland facilities in preparation for the start of FAA certification flight tests. The 400XT remains on target for first-quarter certification, Nextant said.
