BOMBARDIER | LJ70 | LEARJET 70 (2013-2016)
BRIEF HISTORY – LEARJET 70
The Learjet 70 is an upgraded variant of the 40XR and has a range of 2,060 nautical miles thanks in large part to new Honeywell engines and redesigned winglets. The Learjet 70’s design has received inspiration from many sources; the airframe concept originated from the Learjet 40 which was shortened from the 45 models, while the canted winglet design originated with the Bombardier Global 7000/8000 types. In May 2012, during the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, the aircraft was presented. It is being manufactured alongside the Learjet 75 at a site in Wichita, Kansas. Bombardier announced in July 2012 that a large fractional fleet company had placed the first definitive order for three Learjet 70 aircraft. In November 2013, the FAA certified the Learjet 70 and entered service shortly after. In 2016, Bombardier ceased all manufacturing due to low demand. The larger Learjet 75 would continue to be manufactured until 2021.
CABIN COMFORTS – LEARJET 70
Six passengers can be accommodated comfortably in the business jet’s cabin in a forward-club layout. As soon as you enter the cabin you notice the forward galley with luxurious fittings with an incredibly modern design throughout. As you turn into the largest cabin in its class, you will find an open cabin equipped with ergonomic high back chairs and wide aisles increasing cabin mobility. The passenger amenities include a 7-inch touch-screen display in each seat with complete audio and video control, a 12.1-inch high definition (HD) monitor, an audio system with concealed trim panel speakers, an iPod interface, and a high-speed data and ethernet backbone. Additionally, there are two twenty-inch executive tables, an aft lavatory with solid door, an illuminated vanity mirror, and a sink.
POWER AND PERFORMANCE – LEARJET 70
The aircraft is powered by two Honeywell TFE731-40BR engines which miraculously provide more thrust while consuming less fuel, boasting a maximum takeoff thrust of 17.1kN. (3,850lbs). Each engine is equipped with its own wing tank fuel system, and gasoline is automatically delivered to both wing tanks. The aircraft flies at a high cruising speed of 464 kt (534 mph) and a long-range speed of 432 knots (497mph). The aircraft’s maximum operational altitude is 51,000ft (15,545m) and its maximum range is 2,060nm (3,815km). It can take off at 4,440 feet and land at an impressive 2,660 feet. The main factor that limited this aircrafts success is the weight restrictions. Its competitors are much more capable.
FLIGHT DECK – LEARJET 70
The flight deck is equipped with a Garmin G5000 Vision. Three high-resolution 14-inch widescreen displays, touch-screen controls, and a synthetic vision system complete the avionics suite. It is equipped with a paperless cockpit, graphic flight planning, and solid-state weather radar. Additionally, it incorporates a surface awareness system, a digital audio system, and data link capabilities, all of which help to alleviate the pilot’s workload which increases their focus and overall safety. Additionally, two digital air data processors are added to track the aircraft’s operational characteristics. The Learjet 70’s state-of-the-art environmental control system (ECS) provides optimal management of the aircraft’s environment, with dual-zone control for the cabin and cockpit. Additionally, the aircraft is equipped with twin WAAS GPS with localizer performance with vertical guiding (LPV) and capabilities for needed navigational performance (RNP) approaches.
