Bombardier Aviation began designing the Learjet 45 in 1989 but did not announce it to the public until September 1992. The Model 45 was Learjet’s first “clean sheet” design (all other models having been evolved from the original 1963 Learjet design, the Model 23). The Model 45 was created to radically improve Learjet’s competitiveness. The prototype aircraft made its first flight on October 7, 1995. FAA certification was delayed until September 1997, and the first customer aircraft were delivered in mid-1998, nearly ten years after Bombardier began designing this aircraft from scratch. It went through 4 variants –  the Model 45, Model 45XR, Model 40, Model 40XR. Over the span of two decades, this was Learjet Division’s flagship product until the release of the Model 75 version in 2012. The Learjet 45XR was announced in 2004 and would go into service in 2005 with upgraded engines and higher performance.

The Learjet 45XR’s cabin accommodates eight passengers (often in a double club configuration) with plenty of swivel, recline, and track space. Do not be fooled by the smaller cabin measurements; the Learjet 45 was intended to maximize useful cabin space while avoiding cramped conditions. Small advances in legroom, seat size, and galley storage all add up.Other details in the cabin’s design contribute to its functionality and comfort, from fold-down work tables, low cabin noise levels hovering around 72 decibels while cruising, and a two-zone climate control system maintains a suitable temperature in both the cabin and cockpit. A heated exterior luggage compartment gives 50 cubic feet of capacity, while the inside provides an extra 15 cubic feet.

The Learjet 45XR has a range of 2,000 nautical miles and a max cruising speed of 465 knots. On takeoff, two AlliedSignal TFE731-20BR turbofan engines each provide 3,500 pounds of torque. The Learjet 45XR is certified to Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) part 25 amendment 75 safety criteria, which are nearly equal to those required for Boeing 777s. The fuselage is mostly constructed of high-strength aluminum alloys. A computer-controlled manufacturing technique improves production precision and speed.

Standard on the Honeywell Primus 1000 avionics system are four large-format EFIS (ERO Frequency Information Systems) and a three-dimensional approach navigation system via a Universal UNS-1C flight management system. For the first time in a Learjet, the lateral and vertical approach guidance simulations are unrestricted.

The Learjet 45XR is a rugged jet with outstanding cruise performance and fuel efficiency. Its innovative technologies and economical performance, derived from related models, make it an attractive alternative for anybody looking for a high-performance, cost-effective mid-sized private aircraft. The Learjet 45XR is also one of the fastest aircraft in the Super Light Jet category keeping in line with the long time reputation held by Learjet’s of having impressive speed! If you have a 3+ hour flight with 6-8 passengers, the Learjet 45 is a fantastic aircraft for your trip. CharterJets Inc. features the newest and highest safety rated Learjet 45XR’s available.
