Bombardier, the world’s leading business aircraft manufacturer, announced today that the Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 aircraft have received full type certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

“Since their entry-into-service last December, our Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 aircraft have received strong interest from our customers,” said Éric Martel, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The performance and efficiency of both aircraft, combined with their completely new interior, clearly position them as leaders within the light category.”

Performance
The aircraft have enhanced performance through an engine thrust increase with an improved Honeywell engine, offering superior takeoff field length performance over their predecessors. The new avionic system contributes to achieving weight savings and the new canted winglets improve aerodynamic efficiency. Overall, both aircraft provide up to a nine per cent improvement in field performance under hot and high conditions and up to a four per cent improvement in fuel efficiency.*

Cabin
The new interiors of the Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 aircraft include improved comfort and styling of the seats, a spacious galley for optimized catering, work and storage space and a generous baggage suite. In both aircraft, the cabin management system features individual touchscreen monitors with full audio and video control. The advanced connectivity options of the Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 aircraft ensure the highest levels of convenience.

Bombardier Vision Flight Deck
A breakthrough in business aviation, the Bombardier Vision flight deck is designed to deliver a completely new cockpit experience. By combining the best in technological advancements with superior design aesthetics, it provides pilots flying Bombardier’s Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 aircraft with an unprecedented level of control and comfort. The Bombardier Vision flight deck for Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 aircraft features the fully integrated Garmin G5000 digital avionics suite, designed with leading edge technology and one of the most intuitive crew interfaces available.

Customer Support Network

In preparation for a smooth entry-into-service, Bombardier has reconfigured a Level D full-flight simulator at its aircraft training centre in Dallas, Texas. Customer Services staff deployed throughout its worldwide network of Service Centres, Parts Depots and Regional Support Offices will also be ready to support upcoming entry-into-service activities including spare parts deployments, as well as updated information on the Customer Information Centre (CIC) website and the SmartFix Plus online troubleshooting tool.
