Description: Bombardier Learjet is a family of twin-engine, light business jet evolved from the Learjet 23/24 introduced in 1964. Bill Lear's company, the original manufacturer of Learjet, was acquired by Bombardier in 1990. These jets provide high-speed performance and outstanding comfort thanks to its spacious cabin. Currently, Bombardier is marketing the Learjet 40/40 XR, Learjet 45/45 XR and Learjet 60 jets but the full Learjet product line has seen around 13 models since its inception in 1963 through 2005. These business jets incorporate improvements developed for larger aircraft at Bombardier.

The Learjet 40 business jet was introduced in 2003 and features a larger and taller pressurized cabin for maximum passenger comfort and productivity. This aircraft cruises at Mach 0.81 above weather, turbulence and traffic. Bombardier developed the Learjet 40 along with the 45 and 45 XR models to fly at higher altitudes - between 43,000 and 51,000 feet - than its predecessors and competition. Typically, Learjet 40 can cover Dallas to San Francisco in juts 3 hours 32 minutes.

Typically, the twin-engine Learjet 40 operates from runways 1,300 meters long carrying up to seven passengers and two crew. The aircraft is powered by two Honeywell TFE731-20AR-1B turbofan engines rated at 3,500 pounds each. Bombardier is developing the Learjet 40 XR with enhanced TFE731-BR engines for optimal operation in hot and high conditions allowing for shorter takeoffs distances. On 13 February 2006, Bombardier Aerospace announced the entry into commercial service of its Learjet 40 XR business light jet.
