Anticipation has been growing since the day Bombardier announced the clean-sheet design of Learjet 85 revolutionary business jet. It does not get any newer then this aircraft! The Learjet 85 fits in between the midsize and supersize spectrum of private jets. The jet will be capable of cruising at about 600 mph, but the most impressive stat is its ability to fly at least 3,000 miles with up to four passengers. It flies faster and farther than any Learjet ever built.
The plush aircraft is also decked out with the newest and most advanced avionics. Designed to enhance pilot performance, the jet includes a synthetic vision system for use in low-visibility conditions and a paperless cockpit that relies on iPads to call up navigation charts.
The Learjet 85 and two other new Learjet models, the smaller Learjets 70 and 75, are expected to be available next year, according to Bombardier. The aircraft is being assembled at Bombardier’s plant in Wichita, Kan.
