Learjet 60XR

Learjet 60XR VIP Transport JetThe Learjet 60XR mid-size cabin, medium-range corporate jet manufactured by Bombardier Aerospace in Wichita, Kansas, USA.  The Learjet 60XR was introduced in 2005 and is a variant of the Learjet 60 which was first flown in 1991.  The 60 evolved from the Learjet 55 with a purpose of increasing the Learjets overall capacity.  The 60 featured an elongated fuselage, significant changes to the wing design, new engines and new engine pylons.  The latest model, 60XR (extended range) features an upgraded cabin and an advanced avionics suite over the previous Model 60.

True to any Learjet series, the Learjet 60XR is noted for its climbing ability, efficiency of operation and ease of handling at altitudes well above normal traffic lanes and turbulence.  Thus it gets you to your destination more quickly and smoothly than most other jets in its class.

The Learjet 60XR carries the distinction of being the first business aircraft to be modeled using NASA’s Tranair transonic aerodynamics software.  The resulting design was exceptionally stable in all phases of flight and extremely efficient as well.  Pilots laud the handling characteristics and reduced workload.

The elegantly appointed interior of the 60XR offers more of what corporate travelers appreciate and expect on long flights.  The stand-up cabin is complete with a well-appointed galley, cabin furnishings finished with the finest materials,  and all designed to create the feeling of functional luxury.
