Bombardier today introduced a new level of passenger comfort in the Light jet category with the introduction of a Learjet 75 aircraft featuring an innovative pocket door design. The pocket door divides the cabin from the cockpit and galley area and reduces noise levels inside the cabin by up to eight decibels*, while creating a distinct private living space for passengers. The aircraft has received a supplemental type certificate from the FAA and the first of its type will be showcased throughout the EBACE convention.
“The Learjet 75 business jet is already valued for its comfortable interior and its ability to fly further and faster than its nearest competitor. The pocket door option adds an extra dimension of comfort previously found only on larger jets. This feature allows customers to take full advantage of the Learjet 75 aircraft’s impressive speed and range in even greater comfort than before,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Learjet name is synonymous with pioneering spirit and pace-setting innovation, and we at Bombardier are continuing to build on this legacy to ensure an exciting and forward-focused future for Learjet aircraft.”
The Learjet 75 aircraft comes equipped with an advanced, luxurious and longest cabin in its class. With its large cross-section and unique flat floor design, the aircraft can be configured to seat either six or eight passengers comfortably, with the most seated headroom, best ease of mobility and greatest legroom of any competitor in the Light jet category.
Learjet 75 aircraft passengers have access to their own USB outlet and 7” pop-up monitor connected to the media center, which can play different movies or music to each seat.
Bombardier remains strongly committed to the success of the Learjet family. Since acquiring the Learjet Corporation in 1990, Bombardier has revitalized both the brand and the product line, bringing to market no less than nine new models.
The Learjet 70 and the Learjet 75 aircraft are the pillars of Bombardier’s industry-leading business aircraft portfolio. In February 2016, Bombardier marked yet another high point in the proud history of its iconic Learjet brand with the delivery of its 75th Learjet 75 business jet. The milestone was reached slightly more than two years after the aircraft entered service.
In April 2016, Bombardier appointed industry veteran Mike Fahey to lead a new sales team dedicated to Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 aircraft worldwide.
