Flexjet Launches First Learjet 85 Fractional Ownership Program

After years of anticipation, Flexjet is launching its fractional jet ownership sales program of Bombardier’s Learjet 85 aircraft as the manufacturer’s first customer.   It’s anticipated delivery is in 2013.

“Flexjet is thrilled to offer its owners the first opportunity to experience private aviation at its very best aboard the all-new Learjet 85 aircraft,” said Fred Reid, President, Flexjet. “Designed to fly farther than any Learjet aircraft ever built, this new aircraft lives up to its legendary lineage while setting a new standard for passenger comfort.”

Set to revolutionize the industry, the composite structures of the Learjet 85 aircraft enhance passenger comfort through the use of complex curves in the aircraft cross-section and thinner wall thickness to maximize cabin volume, creating the largest Learjet aircraft ever designed.  Other innovations include the aircraft’s state-of-the-art Pratt & Whitney Canada PW307B turbofan engine, the Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics suite—one of the most advanced flight displays ever offered onboard a midsize aircraft—and an advanced entertainment and wireless Internet system.

The Learjet 85 aircraft is capable of accommodating eight passengers in a traditional double-club seating arrangement. With approximately 30 inches between each seat, passengers enjoy more room than ever when traveling on long distance flights. The aircraft offers a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.82 and a transcontinental range of up to 3,000 nautical miles (5,556 km)*, making the Learjet 85 aircraft the fastest and most efficient aircraft in its class.
