White Plains, New York (Tuesday November 8, 2016) — Safe Flight Instrument Corporation, the world’s leading manufacturer of retrofit Auto Throttle Systems has partnered with Nextant engineering to develop the modified throttle quadrant for the G90XT.
Safe Flight modified the existing Throttle Quadrant Assembly (TQA) allowing for a single lever power feature and provisioning for future AutoPower®, autothrottle systems installations on the G90XT. This is another successful collaboration with Nextant on AutoPower®, which started with the successful certification of AutoPower® on the Nextant 400XT program.
“The aircraft recently performed its first flight with the new engines and throttle quadrant, with the flight exceeding 5 hours”, according to Jay Heublein, Executive Vice President at Nextant. Deliveries of the G90XT with Safe Flight’s throttle quadrant are scheduled to begin in Spring 2017.
