Corporate aviation leader Bombardier Aerospace launched its all-new Learjet aircraft, provisionally named Learjet NXT, the next generation in Learjet excellence.
True to its legendary heritage, the next Learjet aircraft is set to deliver the extraordinary performance Learjet aircraft owners expect. Targeting a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.82, the clean-sheet Learjet aircraft will offer its passengers a transcontinental range of up to 3,000 nautical miles (5,556 km)*. Designed to provide a larger, more comfortable cabin than any existing midsize aircraft, this jet will offer eight passengers a stand-up cabin built to ensure superior productivity and comfort.
Bombardier Aerospace plans to show the next Learjet business jet in October 2008, in time to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the first flight of a Learjet aircraft.
