Steve Westlake, md, says the European block charter operator likes Learjets because of their fuel efficiency, speed, range and comfortable cabins. "A limited number of fractional shares, offering 50 and 100 hour blocks, will be available for purchase on this new fleet." The European Skytime fleet already includes Learjet 31, 45 and 60 and the Challenger 604.

Westlake says: "We are building for the future with plans to offer the entire Learjet aircraft product line. We want to ensure that clients have the widest possible choice."
