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 60 is a mid-size business jet combining high-speed, longer range than its predecessors and comfort in a spacious cabin. Learjet 60 was introduced in 1993 and is powered by two Pratt & Whitney PW305A engines rated at 4,600 pounds each. Cruising at Mach 0.74 while carrying a crew of two and eight passengers, the Learjet 60 has a maximum range of 4,617 km. The US Air Force and the Air National Guard operates a fleet of 76 Learjet 35A aircraft designated as the C-21 and used primarily for senior-level passengers, cargo airlift and aeromedical evacuations. C-21s were delivered between April 1984 and October 1985. These aircraft are used primarily for cargo and passenger airlift.

In November 2005 Bombardier announced the Learjet 60 XR business jet featuring Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 advanced cockpit and a new stand-up cabin delivering higher comfort. The new business jet retains the basic characteristics of its parent aircraft, Learjet 60. On April 3, 2006 Bombardier Learjet 60 XR business jet executed its maiden flight that lasted 2-hour and 20-minute after taking off from the Iowa Airport at Cedar Rapids. The Learjet 60 jet set a world speed record in its category after flying a Cape Town-Johannesburg (South Africa) round trip in two hours and 59 minutes. The flight took place on September 21, 2006, and the speed record was sanctioned by the Federation Aéronautique Internationale (FAI).
