Officials at EADS Socata are still mum about its rumored next airplane, but at least they’ll allow that the project has a name. The upcoming design’s working name is being called the NTx.
The NT stands for “next twin,” and the “x” represents a bit of uncertainty. It either stands for a 6-seat or 8-seat cabin configuration, or perhaps the design will come in two cabin sizes, the company says.
There’s obviously more to the project than just its name, but spokesmen aren’t willing to go there just yet. The airplane doesn’t have a launch date or a firm price target.
More information may be revealed at the upcoming National Business Aviation Association convention in Orlando, Fla., from Oct. 6 to 8.
Reviewing this regulation will make you a more effective plane spotter when ATC calls out fast traffic in busy (and haze-laden) airspace.
Pilots who attended AOPA's fifth regional fly-in of the year in Chino, California, shared the excitement of the people, airplanes, and educational events via social media. See what they were saying.
AOPA’s fifth regional fly-in of 2014 brought 329 aircraft and some 2,500 people to Chino, California, Sept. 20.
