Bill Lear founded the American Aviation Corporation in 1960. The company was renamed the Lear Jet Corporation in 1962, and the first LearJet, the Learjet 23, flew for the first time a year later. They began altering and releasing variations as a result of its success. You can trace the origins of all Learjet’s back to it.The Learjet Model 35 and Model 36 are a series of multi-role business jets and military transport aircraft produced by Learjet in the United States. Two Garrett TFE731-2 turbofan engines power the aircrafts. The longer-range Model 36 has a smaller passenger cabin to make room for fuel tanks in the aft fuselage. The original Model 35 was 13 inches longer than its predecessor, the Model 25, and was powered by two TFE731-2-2A engines.Turbofan engines made their debut in the series with the introduction of the Learjet 35A model, offering both fuel efficiency and a quieter cabin for greater passenger comfort. The original Model 35 was 13 inches longer than its predecessor, the Model 25, and was powered by two TFE731-2-2A engines. The prototype Model 35 took to the flight for the first time on August 22, 1973, and in July of 1974, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified the Learjet 35 and 36 models. A total of 64 base-model 35’s were produced. Subsequent aircraft that were developed from the LR35 was the Learjet 31 / 31A / 31ER, utilizing advancements achieved on the fuselage and engines paired with a more modern wing (without fuel tanks) from the Learjet 55 series, plus the addition of delta fins under the tail.The Model 35A was introduced in 1976 as an updated Model 35 with TFE731-2-2B engines with a range of 2,366 nautical miles (2,723 mi / 4,382 km). It has a fuel capacity of 931 US gallons (3,524 L) and can be refueled at ground level via each wingtip tank. The 36A variation was released at the same time as well. Six hundred and seventy-seven Learjet 35A’s were constructed. A Learjet 35A broke the world record for the fastest round-the-world flight in 1996, clocking in at 49 hours, 21 minutes, and 8 seconds. The plane used for the flight is on exhibit in Denver International Airport’s Terminal C. This record would be effortlessly beaten by the Gulfstream G650 in 2013 clocking in at 41 hours and 7 minutes.

The Learjet 35A accommodates 4 adults under 6 feet tall comfortably but is configured for six to eight guests in its cabin. The cabin of the Learjet 35A is constructed from the same fuselage cross-section as the Learjet 25, which is the original Learjet. The cabin has 268 cubic feet (8.1 cubic meter) in volume and measures 12 feet 11 inches (3.94m) long, 4 feet 11 inches (1.49m) wide, and 4 feet 4 inches (1.32m) tall and with a floor width of 3.0 feet (0.91m). This private business jet has 40 cubic feet (1.13 cubic meter) of baggage storage beneath the aft fold-down divan seat, which may be accessed while in flight.Please note, while it is technically equipped with a lavatory, in most Learjet 35’s this is considered an “emergency lavatory”. The seat near the flight deck converts into a small lavatory with a curtain. The Learjet 35A can maintain a sea-level cabin altitude at an altitude of 25,700 feet (7,833 m) thanks to a maximum cabin pressure differential of 9.4 psi, as well as cabin pressure 8,000 feet (2,438 m).

The original Learjet 35 had a limited range of only 2,056 nm range with a top cruising speed of 440 knots. However, on the 35A, Two Garrett AiResearch TFE731 turbofan engines are used, each engine producing 3,500 pounds of thrust. On a typical day, the Learjet 35A requires only 4,972 feet (1,516 m) of runway to take off at sea level. This take-off requirement rises to 10,100 feet (3,079m) at an airport with a 5,000-foot (1,524 m) elevation. The Learjet 35A requires only 3,075 feet (937 m) to land with four passengers on board and only 2,550 feet (777 m) with a light payload. Its range with four passengers and max fuel and reserves is 2,195 nautical miles (4,070 km).The maximum certified service ceiling of this private business jet is 45,000 feet (13,716 m), and the maximum range is 2,366 nm (2,723 mi / 4,382 km). In a long-range cruise configuration, the Learjet 35A has a long-range cruising speed of 418 knots (481 mph / 774 km/h) at an altitude of 43,000 feet (13,106 m) for a journey to another location. In a high-speed cruise configuration, this private business jet has a maximum cruise speed of 451 knots (519 mph / 835 km/h) at an altitude of 41,000 feet (12,497 m) for a faster journey.

Analog screens and instruments were used in the original Learjet 35A instrumentation system. However, as technology has progressed, computerized flight decks have become an upgrade option.The Collins avionics system, which includes Collins navigation, communication, and ident radios, as well as optional equipment such as a Collins electronic flight information system (EFIS) package with right and left side primary flight displays (PFDs) in conjunction with a large center multi-function display (MFD), color weather radar, and a flight management system, is standard on the Learjet 35A. (FMS).

The Learjet 35A came on the scene and set new standards in aviation for light jets. It would go on to be well-known for its rocket-like speed and coast to coast range. While the aircraft is configured for 8 passengers, it can accommodate 4 adults under 6 feet tall comfortably. The Learjet 35A has an impressive dispatch rate and reliability over the years of service it has provided. If time is of the essence, the Learjet 35A is a great pick for you and your group.
