Bombardier’s Learjet 40 took its first flight in 2002 and entered the private jet market in 2004 where it’s remained a popular choice for business travelers ever since.
It developed from the Learjet 45, but has a shorter fuselage, higher rate of climb and service ceiling than any of its predecessors, making it able to fly above bad weather and congested air traffic. In addition, the Learjet 40 offers a maximum cruise speed of 525 mph and a range of just over 2,200 miles allow for non-stop trips across the United States – something most light jets can’t do without a stop to refuel. Another benefit of this jet is that its aerodynamic design and Honeywell TFE731-20AR-1B ensure economic fuel consumption.
The Learjet 40 comes equipped with carbon brakes, wing spoilers, and fins on its vertical stabilizer which provides smooth flights and soft landings, something all air passengers can appreciate.
Inside, the jet seats up to seven passengers and offers plenty of head room and leg room with a cabin width and height of around 5 ft. In addition, the jet offers a fully enclosed lavatory for the privacy and comfort of passengers. A partial galley also ensures passengers will be eating and drinking in style while on board.
Unlike many other light jets, the Learjet 40 offers both internal and external baggage compartments so that passengers need not compromise their comfort when it comes to bringing luggage along with whatever else they may need whether its golf clubs or skis.
With all its comfort, style, and speed, the Learjet 40 is a solid choice for any frequent flier. If you would like to fly on the Learjet 40 on your next air charter, request a quote on charterjets.com or call 1-888-729-JETS for a no obligation quote.
