Bombardier Inc. has announced the release of a new light jet, the Learjet 75 Liberty, which will be offered at a list price of $9.9 million (£7.8 million).
Assembled in Wichita, Kansas, the six-seat light jet is the fastest aircraft in its segment, has a range of 2,080 nautical miles and will include the recently announced Garmin G5000 avionics upgrade.
“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.”
The new aircraft is certified to the FAA’s Part 25 regulations (as opposed to the less stringent Part 23), normally applicable to commercial arliners, and first deliveries are expected for 2020.
“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.”
