Bombardier premiers sleek Learjet 85 aircraft interior

Bombardier Aerospace today revealed its new all-composite Learjet 85 aircraft interior to customers and special guests at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) annual convention and exhibition in Orlando. The full-scale composite mock-up will be open for viewing throughout the show at the Bombardier static pavilion at Orlando Executive Airport.

"The Learjet 85 aircraft's cabin features more volume and comfort than any existing midsize offering and now our customer can experience it first hand," said Steve Ridolfi, president, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "Development of the Learjet 85 aircraft is progressing well as we enter the next phase of this exciting new program."

Designed to provide a larger, more comfortable cabin than any existing midsize aircraft, the Learjet 85 aircraft's 665 ft3 (18.8 m3) cabin is the largest Learjet aircraft cabin ever – offering eight passengers a stand-up environment built to ensure superior productivity. A key element of the aircraft's cabin is its large windows, measuring approximately 12 x16 inches (30.5 X 40.6 cm), maximizing the amount of natural light into the aircraft as well as passenger viewing capability.

The standard double club configuration floorplan features a generous 30-in (76.2-cm) pitch between the seats, a full service galley, full lavatory, three large storage closets, providing in-flight access to a total of 30 ft3 (0.85 m3) of storage space. All cabin seats are fully-berthable with the capability to deploy four at any time for optimum comfort.

The new Learjet 85 aircraft - redefining the midsize business jet class

Launched on October 30, 2007, the new Learjet 85 aircraft will be the first Bombardier Aerospace jet to feature an all-composite structure and will be the first all-composite structure business jet designed for type certification under U.S. Federal Aviation Administration FAR Part 25.

An extraordinary advancement in next generation flight, the Learjet 85 aircraft's all-composite structure will allow Learjet aircraft designers to maximize cabin comfort while minimizing drag and improving performance.

Building on legendary Learjet aircraft performance

True to its legendary heritage, the Learjet 85 aircraft is set to deliver the extraordinary performance, superior technology and exceptional value Learjet aircraft owners expect. The aircraft is powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW307B engines, each boasting 6,100 pounds of take-off thrust each at sea level 86°F (30°C) and low noise levels, while the advanced low NOx emission combuster offers reduced environmental impact. The clean-sheet Learjet 85 aircraft targets a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.82 and a transcontinental range of up to 3,000 nautical miles (5,556 km)*.

The new Learjet 85 aircraft flight deck combines advanced technology with superior design elements for a cockpit environment unlike any other midsize jet. The latest in technological advancements from Rockwell Collins – the new Pro Line Fusion avionics suite – is once again paired with superior design aesthetics to create the ultimate Learjet flight control environment.

Learjet is the first name in corporate aviation. Since acquiring Learjet Inc. in 1990, Bombardier Aerospace has carried forward the brand's proud legacy by launching eight high-performance and fuel-efficient aircraft.
