Learjet 31 Learjet 31A
The Learjet 31 is an eight passenger twin-engined, high speed, light business jet. LearJet is virtually synonymous with “speed” and the Learjet 31 and 31A can cruise at a speed of Mach .81, after reaching cruising altitude in just under a half-hour. The 31 and its variants are produced by LearJet as the successor to the Learjet 29. The Learjet 29 was the intended successor to the Learjet 25 and is identical except for an additional long-range fuel tank. This resulted in improved performance but also reduced the capacity to four passengers from six. The Learjet 29 was ultimately commercially unsuccessful due to high noise and fuel consumption.
The Learjet 31 was introduced in 1987 and its replacement the 31A was introduced in 1991. The 31A features numerous modifications in the cockpit. Additional modifications to increase take-off and landing weights were announced in 2000. The Learjet 31 and 31A are undeniably highly successful, taking the best performing attributes of previous models and integrating them into a world-class, high speed, private jet.
As mentioned, the Learjet 31 incorporated features from previous models such as the larger fuselage design from the 35 which was originally introduced in 1973, and the NASA designed, aerodynamically superior wing of the 55 which was developed in 1981, and delta fins under the tail. These features combined with state-of-the-art avionics suite and two Garret engines providing 3500 lbs of thrust endow this jet with the ability to outperform on several fronts most of the jets in its class. The Learjet 31A has excellent in-flight performance, even outside the recommended flight envelope. Its rapid acceleration and response make it a favorite among pilots. Its speed and accommodations will turn heads while getting passengers to their destination with passion and purpose.
