Bombardier has unveiled the Learjet 75 Liberty, a six-seat aircraft that gives passengers the freedom to stretch out in the only executive suite in the light jet category, aboard a stunning cabin that delivers a quiet and smooth ride. The aircraft will be offered at a list price of US$9.9 million, with first deliveries expected in 2020.
“The Learjet 75 Liberty represents a step up for customers in the light jet segment, with unprece-dented spaciousness and Bombardier’s renowned smooth ride,” says Bombardier Aviation president David Coleal. “The newest member of the Learjet family delivers a flight experience that eclipses the competition.”
Bombardier claims the Learjet 75 Liberty offers better performance at the same operating costs as competitor aircraft; the fastest aircraft in the light jet segment has a greater reach than the competition, and its range of 2,080 nm can connect Las Vegas to New York, Seattle to Washington, DC, and Mexico City to San Francisco non-stop.
Featuring a flat floor throughout the cabin, with a standard pocket door between the cockpit and the executive suite that provides a quiet flight experience and a Gogo ATG 4G solution for connectivity, the Learjet 75 Liberty offers an environment tailored for productivity. It also features the advanced Bombardier Vision flight deck, and includes the recently announced Garmin G5000 avionics upgrade.
The Learjet 75 Liberty is certified to the FAA’s more stringent Part 25 regulations, which are applicable to commercial airliners.
“I'm extremely proud that the Learjet 75 Liberty will be built in Wichita, where the Learjet dream first took flight,” says vice president of operations and Wichita site Tonya Sudduth. “Our Wichita facility today has a diverse mandate supporting Bombardier’s extensive fleet of business aircraft, but to introduce the newest member of this iconic brand is of special significance to our team.”
