Remos Aircraft will debut its new model GX NXT at EAA AirVenture 2011. The company is already taking orders for the NXT and will continue to sell the GX Aviator II, Remos officials said, noting that since each NXT is customized to include those options that each customer wants, consumers can expect delivery within 90 days of placing their order.
The biggest differences between the NXT and Aviator II are found in the panel configuration and price. Base price for an NXT will be $129,961, compared to $148,900 for the Aviator II.
The new, streamlined panel design offers more leg room and better visibility over the nose of the aircraft, according to company officials. A significant change in the development of the NXT is the use of Dynon Avionics versatile SkyView System, officials add. SkyView combines EFIS/EMS/Virtual Reality/Transponder in one unit along, with a steady flow of free software upgrades. Owners can opt for a second SkyView in their panel and can also integrate a Garmin 696 and Dynon autopilot as options, officials add.
Remos’ GX NXT can be ordered with a com or nav/com unit and can be enhanced with a wide range of exterior color options. Both models feature folding wings and the ability to fly with the doors off. With full panel options the NXT has an empty weight of 718 pounds and a useful load capability of 602 pounds or 470 pounds with full fuel.
