Bombardier announced that it will showcase the newest member of the Learjet family, the Learjet 75 Liberty, with a full-size interior mock-up at the 2019 National Business Aviation Association Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) in Las Vegas, Nev.
“This mock-up will truly show light jet customers just how spacious and comfortable our newest Learjet is,” said Peter Likoray, senior vice-president, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Learjet 75 Liberty offers a larger cabin and superior performance for the same price as competitors, and it’s certified to a higher safety standard.”
The full-size interior of the Learjet 75 Liberty at Bombardier’s static display at NBAA-BACE will give visitors an opportunity to experience the features that set this light jet apart. Customers attending NBAA-BACE will also be eligible for promotional launch offers on the Learjet 75 Liberty.
The Learjet 75 Liberty debuts the segment’s first Executive Suite, a spacious area at the front of the cabin with two forward-facing seats and an unprecedented three feet (0.91 metres) of legroom for the light jet category. Passengers can stretch out on oversized ottomans that are easily stowable, and open up their laptops on large, retractable side tables. Located behind a standard forward pocket door, the Executive Suite is a quiet haven for busy executives.
Visitors to the Learjet 75 Liberty mock-up can also experience class-leading legroom in the Club Suite, with a four-seat configuration, large side tables and plenty of storage.
The latest member of the iconic Learjet family was unveiled earlier this summer and is generating strong interest on the market. It is expected to enter service in 2020.
The Learjet 75 Liberty is the fastest aircraft in the light jet segment with a top speed of Mach 0.81. Its range of 2,080 nautical miles can connect Las Vegas to New York, Seattle to Washington, D.C., and Mexico City to San Francisco, nonstop. This superior performance comes at the same operating costs as competitor aircraft that offer less.
The Learjet 75 Liberty is certified to the highest safety standards applicable to commercial airliners, unlike most competitors in the light jet category that are certified to less stringent safety standards. Learjet aircraft offer impressive handling characteristics and outstanding performance. The Learjet 75 Liberty features the advanced Bombardier Vision flight deck, and includes the recently announced Garmin G5000 avionics upgrade.
