Me & My Aircraft: Aircraft on the horizon: Learjet 70
The Learjet 70 will feature a modern design interior, a next generation cabin management system, the Vision Flight Deck with a state-of-the-art avionics suite, superior aircraft performance and low operating costs.

The Learjet 70 will feature a modern design interior, a next generation cabin management system, the Vision Flight Deck with a state-of-the-art avionics suite, superior aircraft performance and low operating costs. Entry-into-service is scheduled for the first half of 2013.

The aircraft will have enhanced performance through an engine thrust increase with an improved Honeywell engine, offering better takeoff field length performance over the Learjet 40. The new systems will also contribute to weight savings gain and the canted winglets will improve aerodynamic efficiency. Overall, up to a nine per cent improvement in field performance under hot and high conditions and up to a four per cent improvement in fuel efficiency are expected. It will be able to achieve a range greater than 2,000nm at a cruise speed of Mach 0.75.

Inside are improved comfort and styling, a cabin management system featuring individual touchscreen monitors with full audio and video control, LED lighting throughout the aircraft and a spacious galley.

Upon entry into service, the aircraft will be supported by a maintenance programme designed to allow customers to operate to a 600 flight hour fixed inspection interval at Bombardier's worldwide customer services infrastructure.
