CLEVELAND, OHIO, April 3, 2014 – Nextant Aerospace (“Nextant”), maker of the Nextant 400XTi – the world’s only remanufactured business jet – and the forthcoming G90XT turboprop, today announced that it had appointed Four Points Aero Services (“Four Points”) as an authorized service center. Located at Love Field Airport, Dallas, Texas, the facility is the 12th center in Nextant’s dynamically expanding global customer support network.
The domestic market has improved significantly in recent months, accelerating the decision to expand the US service center network. Texas represents a significant portion of that growth and this, combined with its central location, makes Dallas an ideal location for the next service center.
Last year, Nextant signed a $202.5 million fleet conversion order with TMC.
Four Points is a full service aircraft repair facility with over 25,000 square feet (2,323 square meters) of hangar space and a strong reputation for high-quality maintenance. Four Points’ technicians have significant experience on Nextant predecessor aircraft and provide a variety of services including airframe and engine maintenance, and major and minor repairs.
“The appointment of Four Points reflects our growing customer base and expanding requirements for first-rate engineering support in the US,” said Tony Kurpely, Director of Global Product Support at Nextant. “We are currently achieving better than 95% dispatch reliability with an average AOG downtime of just seven hours. We have built a global customer service infrastructure to achieve those targets and we are proud to welcome Four Points into the Nextant family.”
“Nextant remanufacturing is a game changer in business aviation, as demonstrated by the company’s global sales success,” said John Burnum, Director of Sales at Four Points Aero Services. “We are happy to be a part of that and to join their dynamically expanding network of service centers.”
Nextant’s pioneering process for remanufacturing business jets is now recognized as an established technical and commercial success worldwide with significant sales in every major operator category and class-leading levels of comfort, performance, and reliability at a purchase price half that of comparable aircraft. The revolutionary 400XTi light jet features Williams FJ44-3AP engines and the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21™ integrated flight deck. The same winning combination of the latest technology in remanufactured airframes is expected to repeat this success with the G90XT turboprop powered by next-generation GE H75 engines and an enhanced Garmin G1000 integrated flight deck. Founded in 2007, Nextant is a Directional Aviation Capital company based in Cleveland, Ohio.
