US-based auctioneering firm Alex Lyon & Son has taken delivery of the first Learjet 75 Liberty from Bombardier.
“Over the past 20 years, Learjet aircraft and Bombardier's support teams have given me a 99.9 per cent dispatch reliability rate. And thanks to the speed of a Learjet, a late departure doesn't prevent us from arriving on time, which has helped me run my business more efficiently,” states Jack Lyon, president and CEO of Alex Lyon & Son. “We appreciate the speed, range and reliability of these aircraft and we're proud to become the owners of the first Learjet 75 Liberty.”
Established in 1950, Alex Lyon & Son is said to be the largest privately held auction company and sales manager in the world. The family-owned operation is located in Bridgeport, New York, and has offices and conducts business in the US, Canada, Mexico and South America.
“The Learjet 75 Liberty is a value-added business tool for those seeking a safer and more efficient travel option,” adds Peter Likoray, senior VP of sales and marketing, new aircraft, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “This achievement would not have been possible without our highly skilled team members in Wichita, who are incredibly proud to be delivering the best Learjet yet.”
Bombardier announced this entry-into-service as its first virtual customer event unfolded. The OEM is to guide customers through personalised visits of its business jets, and showcase the innovative digital tools it has developed to help customers interact with its products.
The Liberty's six-seat configuration features an executive suite where passengers enjoy around 90 cm of legroom. The light jet is also available in an eight-seat configuration. A standard pocket door behind the cockpit delivers a quiet flight, while Bombardier's smooth ride ensures a comfortable environment. It has a range of 2,080 nm and is able to connect Las Vegas to New York, Seattle to Washington, DC, and Mexico City to San Francisco, non-stop.
