Nextant space announced that it is opening a new office at Orlando Sanford International Airport (ICAO: KSFB) on the Constant Aviation campus. The action comes in response to increased demand for specialized aircraft engineering, design, drafting and analysis for all aspects of aircraft modifications and upgrades in the southeastern U.S.
“Nextant Aerospace is a global leader in aircraft and component remanufacturing and servicing, and has been a key provider of unmatched engineering service solutions to the private aviation industry,” said Mark O’Donnell, Nextant Aerospace’s executive vice-president. “The opening of a dedicated Nextant office at Orlando Sanford will allow us to serve more customers in a part of the country with an abundant number of aircraft that will benefit from our offerings.”
In addition, Nextant is in the process of hiring professionals based on a robust pipeline of aircraft owner projects requiring:
§ In-house aerospace engineering, design, drafting and analysis for all aspects of aircraft modifications and upgrades, applying Nextant’s 13 years of experience as the first remanufacturer of business jets.
§ Structural repair and component upgrades, including such critical elements as Beechjet and Hawker 400-type aircraft horizontal stabilizers, Challenger 300/350 engine inlets, Beechjet and Hawker 400 step reinforcement and Challenger 300 thrust reverser doors.
§ Inspection services in the eddy current, ultrasonic, magnetic particle and liquid penetrant non-destructive testing (NDT) methods.
§ Landing gear repair and overhaul; Nextant has completed more than 380 aircraft landing gear replacements and overhaul procedures on a wide variety of aircraft.
The presence of additional Nextant Aerospace staff on the ground at Orlando Sanford will have further benefits, including much faster turnaround time for aircraft in need of avionics system engineering, structural engineering, design and drafting, aircraft and part certification, product support and services, the company said.
