Learjet 75 Certified by FAA

** Bombardier’s Learjet 75**

The FAA has certified Bombardier's Learjet 75 light jet, a follow-on model to the Learjet 45 featuring new avionics, winglets and more powerful engines.

Bombardier noted that the Learjet 75 offers improved takeoff field length performance over its predecessor thanks to its new Honeywell TFE731-40BR engines. The twinjet also features the new Bombardier Vision avionics system, based on the Garmin G5000 cockpit. New canted winglets improve aerodynamic efficiency.

Overall, up to a 9 percent improvement in field performance in hot and high conditions and up to a 4 percent improvement in fuel efficiency have been achieved, the Canadian business jet maker said.

Boca Raton, Florida, entrepreneur and pilot Louis Beck is the first customer for the Learjet 75. He visited the Learjet factory in Wichita last month to tour his airplane and meet with Learjet officials. He will take delivery soon.

Certification efforts are also in progress for the Learjet 70, an upgrade of the Learjet 40. Bombardier introduced the Learjet 45 in 1998 and announced the Learjet 70 and 75 in May 2012.
