Originated in Wichita, Kansas, Bill Lear set out on his own with his investment in 1963 to develop a new kind of business jet. The Lear company skipped the prototype step and risked it all by going straight into production of their first aircraft. This action left them with a strategy that there can be no mistakes in making their high performing light weight jet with a sleek design. Having a unique heritage has led them in creating the innovative Learjet 60XR based on their foundations.
Among the Lear line, the Learjet 60XR is the first to use PW305 turbofan engines instead of the general electric engine model. The new engine makes it a powerful jet of the midsize class and excels the others as it can climb at 6,000 feet per minute. It has a flight range of 2,269 nm and a maximum cruise speed of 513 mph. Their electronic charting features in the Flight Management systems make it easier and efficient to operate and having Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 assimilated into the avionics system.
The cabin design is measure at 5.7 feet in height, 5.9 feet in width and 17.7 feet in length which can comfortably accommodate up to 7 people plus the baggage compartment is measure at 59 cu. The luggage compartment is divided between the external compartment and the internal to keep the jet in balance. It also has digital entertainment, a mini gallery, and Wi-Fi for inflight entertainment. Overall, the Learjet 60XR is assimilated with the best of technology and comfort for safe flight travel.
