The Learjet 40XR is a twin engine mid-size business jet built in the US by Bombardier Aerospace. The name Learjet tends to be synonomous with ‘speed’ to many in the industry and Bombardier Learjets are known for their quick climb and high-altitude capabilities, high cruising speeds and short-field performance.
The 40XR is an upgraded version of the Learjet 40 and true to each Learjet evolution, it offered improvements in take-off performance, climb rates, and travel time. The Learjet 40 was introduced in 2002 as a rebuilt Learjet 45. The fuselage of the 45 was shortened, and the aircraft received upgraded engines. These changes offered a significant improvement in performance and range over the original Learjet 45.
Within two years, Learjet announced the Learjet 40XR, an upgraded Model 40. This ‘extended range’ XR model could travel nearly almost 1000 miles farther than the 40 when carrying full fuel and six passengers. The 40XR also offered higher takeoff weights, and faster climb rates and cruising speeds than its recent predecessor.
The cabin of the Learjet 40XR received a makeover as well with an additional 15 cubic feet of wardrobe storage, updated carpet and upholstery options, accommodations for entertainment systems and connectivity for personal electronics.
