Bombardier Achieves FAA Certification for Learjet 75
Bombardier has achieved FAA certification for its Learjet 75 business jet, the Canadian aircraft manufacturer said Friday.
The Learjet 70 and 75 are upgraded replacements for the Learjet 40 and 45, first announced by Bombardier in May 2012. Certification allows for the first delivery to Learjet 75 launch customer Louis Beck, a businessman and pilot based in Boca Raton, Fla.
“We are delighted to have received FAA certification for the first Learjet 75 business jet”, said Ralph Acs, vice president of Learjet at Bombardier." This aircraft, along with its smaller sibling the Learjet 70 business jet, clearly have a bright future in business aviation."
The aircraft has a maximum range of 2,000 nautical miles and features the Vision flight deck with the Garmin G5000 digital avionics suite.
