Retrofit version of the Learjet 40 and designed since the plans of the Learjet 45, this aircraft prooposed since 2004 is quite popular and very popular in business aviation. Bi-reactors of 5-7 seats, he kept the qualities of his (very) distant cousin Learjet 31 with a cruising speed of 840 km / h but without the excessive fuel consumption of the latter. Powered by two Honeywell BR TFE731-20BR reactors, it radiates over a distance of 3800 km.
Equipped with a 5.40 meter cabin allowing 4 people to travel with all the comforts expected from this private air transport mode, this business jet is operated by two pilots. Stability in flight, speed, attention of the manufacturer to the details in cabin, this private plane is a safe value at the price per hour of reasonable flight.
Pilot’s advice: A reasonable price positioning for this light jet with good performances, I place it on flights of 3 to 4 hours like Geneva or Paris – Moscow. Nice to drive.
