Bombardier has unveiled the Learjet 75 Liberty, offering more light jet operators than ever before the opportunity to step up into the platform that launched business aviation in America.
Passengers who step into the six-seat Learjet 75 Liberty will have the freedom to stretch out in the only executive suite in the light jet category, aboard a stunning cabin that delivers a quiet and smooth ride.
The Learjet 75 Liberty will be offered at a list price of US$9.9 million, with first deliveries expected in 2020. This exceptional value proposition represents a new frontier for the Learjet brand.
“The Learjet 75 Liberty represents a step up for customers in the light jet segment, with unprecedented spaciousness and Bombardier’s renowned smooth ride,” said David Coleal, president, Bombardier Aviation. “The newest member of the Learjet family delivers a flight experience that eclipses the competition.”
The Learjet 75 Liberty offers better performance at the same operating costs as competitor aircraft. The Learjet 75 Liberty is the fastest aircraft in the light jet segment and has a greater reach than the competition. Its range of 2,080 nautical miles (3852.16 kilometres) can connect Las Vegas to New York, Seattle to Washington, D.C., and Mexico City to San Francisco, nonstop.
Featuring a flat floor throughout the cabin, a standard pocket door between the cockpit and the executive suite providing the quietest flight experience and a Gogo ATG 4G solution for seamless connectivity, the Learjet 75 Liberty offers an environment tailored for productivity.
The Learjet 75 Liberty aircraft is certified to the FAA’s more stringent Part 25 regulations, applicable to commercial airliners, unlike most competitors in the light jet category that are certified to Part 23 regulations.
Learjet aircraft are preferred by pilots for their impressive handling characteristics and outstanding performance. The Learjet 75 Liberty will feature the advanced Bombardier Vision flight deck, and include the recently announced Garmin G5000 avionics upgrade.
The aircraft will be assembled by a team in Wichita, Kan.
“I’m extremely proud that the Learjet 75 Liberty will be built in Wichita, where the Learjet dream first took flight,” said Tonya Sudduth, vice-president of Operations and Wichita Site, Bombardier Aviation. “Our Wichita facility today has a diverse mandate supporting Bombardier’s extensive fleet of business aircraft, but to introduce the newest member of this iconic brand is of special significance to our team.”
