The Learjet 85 is a new aircraft and the first ever fully composite business jet. Operator Flexjet has ordered an enormous 60 Learjet 85s, Flexjet was previously Bombardier’s fractional ownership division which was sold to private investment firm Directional Aviation Capital in September.
The Learjet 85 could just be the most revolutionary business jet ever in terms of technical innovation and performance. It sits somewhere between the mid-size and super mid-size jet categories, holding up to eight passengers in a level of comfort not likely to be matched by any other jet.
Availability for the Learjet 85 is expected to increase in the beginning of 2014.
