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 85 or Learjet NXT is a business jet positioned between the midsize and super midsize segments announced October 2007 as the next generation of Learjet jet aircraft family. According to Bombardier Aerospace, the jet will carry up to eight passengers in a large and very comfortable cabin over ranges of up to 3,000 nautical miles (5,500+ km) and cruising at Mach 0.82. Bombardier expects to unveil the Learjet NXT in October 2008. In January 2008, Bombardier announced that the newest mid-size Learjet business aircraft was re-named the Learjet 85. Bombardier also announced the selection of Grob Aerospace to develop the aircraft's all-composite structure.
