Learjet 45


In 1962, William P. Lear laid the foundation for all new business jets with the Learjet 23. It was followed by several models with different capacities, ranges and space. The Learjet 45 had its maiden flight in 1995 and is considered the first complete new development since the Learjet 23. While performance and handling is comparable to previous models, the cabin was enlarged and a glass cockpit was installed. Depending on the payload the maximum range is about 2000 mi. The typical cruising speed is 530 mph, at long distances 500 mph are achieved.
